To the Editor:
It is sickening to see how military justice works today if you call it “justice.”
When I was in the military 50 years ago, anyone who acted like Nidal Hasan would have been declared a traitor, immediately court-martialed, brought before a firing squad and shot.
Yet, he has been allowed to live four years after his atrocities.
Also, we were told that any soldier who committed rape would face the same treatment.
Yet, Nidal Hasan has been allowed to live four years after committing his atrocities.
Plus, for the Pentagon to declare his murderous acts as “workplace violence” is ridiculous.
If nothing else, he is just as guilty of terrorism as those who crashed our planes on 9/11.
I bet if Ronald Reagan had been president on 9/11, he would not have continued chopping wood on his ranch like George W. Bush when told in August 2001, that terrorists were planning on hijacking planes and crashing them into buildings on our soil.
