Army Maj. Nidal Hasan has been found guilty of murder in the Fort Hood shoot deaths of 13.
A military jury on Friday convicted Army Maj. Nidal Hasan of 13 counts of premeditated murder in a November 5, 2009, shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, making it possible for the death penalty to be considered as a punishment.The jurors deliberated fewer than seven hours over two days to hand down a verdict against Hasan, who admitted to targeting soldiers he was set to deploy with to Afghanistan to protect the Taliban and its leaders. The shooting rampage occurred at a deployment processing center.
He admitted doing so to protect the Taliban. It begs the question; does the Obama administration still consider this an incidence of workplace violence?
