Well, It’s About Time: Nidal Malik Hasan Sentenced to Death (But He’ll Probably Never Fry); Little Solace to Victims of His Jihad
Dear friends and readers, I’m otherwise occupied with defending and helping the good guys. However, news just broke that Islamic terrorist and U.S. Army invader Nidal Malik Hasan has been sentenced to death for his jihad against 13 men and women serving America and one unborn baby. Problem is, he’ll probably never fry, since the U.S. military hasn’t executed a soldier in more than a half-century. And, now with our national push (on steroids) to please the Muslim world no matter what, our dear leaders would rather not offend Muslims than execute an Islamic terrorist who murdered Americans in cold blood, after he was given everything in life courtesy of you, the American taxpayer. So my guess is that Nidal Malik Hasan will end up spending life in prison after appeals and political correctness take their effects. Maybe I’m wrong. But I’ll bet I’m not.
No matter what happens to Hasan, though, it can never undo what he did in the name of Islam. The testimony on Monday by his surviving victims and the loved ones of those he murdered is harrowing:
Speaking at the sentencing phase of Maj. Nidal Hasan, the Army psychiatrist found guilty Friday of the November 2009 killing rampage, Staff Sgt. Patrick Zeigler Jr., wounded in the head, shoulder, arm and hip, said he’s left with permanent brain injuries that will force him to take a medical discharge. “That day, I had emergency brain surgery on the right side of my head, which removed approximately 20% of my brain. I was expected to die or remain in a vegetative state the rest of my life,” he told prosecutors.
Zeigler said he was hospitalized for 11 months during which he had 10 additional procedures on his head. He has the cognitive abilities of a high school student and said it is unclear whether he can ever hold a job. He cannot drive and is partially paralyzed. . . .
Jennifer Hunt, of Noble, Okla., became a widow that day when her husband of 2 ½ months, Spc. Jason Hunt, was killed at age 22. Hunt said her daughters have “taken it pretty well for as young as they are. Me, on the other hand, I pretty much lost my mind for a while. I got suicidal. I had two suicide attempts.”
Angela Rivera told of how she was notified that her husband, Maj. Libardo Eduardo Caraveo, was killed just a day after arriving at Fort Hood preparing to deploy to Afghanistan. “It was 5:25 in the morning when I heard the doorbell and I knew,” she said, choking back tears. “I could see the two guys standing in uniform. All I could say was ‘I knew it.’ I knew he was dead. As they stood in the living room, I kept saying ‘I knew it.’ I knew it because he did not call me back and he always did.”
Caraveo, 52, was a clinical psychologist and the father of five, including three at home ages 14, 11 and 2. She told of how her oldest daughter became suicidal, her younger daughter left for a year to live with her biological father and her youngest – a son with Caraveo – who every time they passed the airport would say “Are we going to pick up daddy now?”
“I would just cry because I did not know how to tell him his daddy was not coming back,” she said. “I couldn’t do it for awhile – until I finally sought help from a therapist. Through play therapy, she helped me tell John Paul that his daddy was dead and could not come back.”
Rivera said she kept her husband’s cellphone activated until just three weeks ago. “My only comfort was to call his cellphone and hear his voice,” Rivera said. “For almost four years, I kept his cellphone on. Some of his family members would also call to get comfort just by listening to his voice.”
“That man did not just kill 13 that day. He killed 15. He killed my grandson and he killed me that day,” Juan Velez, father of Pvt. Francheska Velez, said through an interpreter. His daughter, 21, of Chicago, was pregnant and preparing to return home after deployment to Iraq.
So, now, a group of military officers sentenced him to just a tiny bit of his just reward for his actions. But, actually, the man deserves to be tortured to death.
Instead, you’ll be paying to house, clothe, feed, and rehabilitate him in prison, likely for life. And he’ll probably become a military prison jihad evangelist, trying to convert others to believe as he does–and as so many tens of millions do: that it’s okay to shed American blood in the name of Islam in a mini-9/11, and you’ll get at least four years of charades and idiocy–even in a military court–before you even face trial.
If there was any justice, Nidal Malik Hasan would have been shot in the head by the soldiers who stopped him from killing and wounding more.
Now, he’ll get better medical care than that which has been given to his victims. On your dime.
