To the Editor:

Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

On June 4, 2013, Maj. Nidal Hasan stated in open court that he murdered 13 soldiers at Fort Hood in defense of “the leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban.” At the time of his murders, the United States had been at war with the Taliban for over eight years.

Major Hasan’s crime fits the literal constitutional definition of treason, letter for letter, including the grounds for conviction, yet the president of the United States officially classifies his crime as “workplace violence.”

How much longer will the American people tolerate this farce? Will it take a nuclear 9/11 to awaken us to reality?

    Pre-trial hearings are not "open court".

    Well the Maj. has asked for at one of the last times he's appeared in court for an additional 3 months, I believe.
    That might be nearing ,if he can keep the court in the palm of his hand as he seems to have a talent for doing, the Month of September.
    These people ,which he is' one of them', by his own admittance, are very symbolic.

    I’m going to tell you what’s this is all about. The Officer Corps messed up big time; they knew about this guy and did nothing. This is about the Officer Corps covering for the Officer Corps. I've seen this for years those CYAing each other. If this was an Enlisted guy he’d already been fried.
