November 5, 2009: U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan opens fire at Fort Hood, Texas. At the end of the massacre, thirteen soldiers were dead with 30 more people wounded. A fourteenth victim was claimed that day as one of the slain soldiers was pregnant.
Hasan's court-martial is slated to begin Tuesday, August 6. In statements released to foxnews.com by his attorney, John Galligan, Hasan renounces the citizenship of the country whose armed services he served in and gives the world a glimpse into his islamic beliefs.
Foxnews.com on Thursday posted what it said were writings released by Hasan through his attorney for civil issues, John Galligan. They include one handwritten note dated Oct. 18, 2012, in which Hasan renounces his American citizenship.
Another undated, typewritten note says it isn't "permissible" for someone to prefer American democracy over traditional Islamic sharia law. Hasan says Muslims should not "compromise their beliefs" for the sake of non-Muslims.
The Associated Press received confirmation from Galligan that he did, in fact, provide the statements to foxnews.com.
If there's any question about Maj. Hasan's ideology, one only has to look to the support he received from Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical imam and senior recruiter for al-Qaeda. You know this guy was trouble when Obama placed him on a list of people whom the CIA was authorized to kill because of terrorist activities.
Following the shootings, al-Awlaki posted on a now-defunct website:
Nidal Hassan is a hero. He is a man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Muslim and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people.... Any decent Muslim cannot live, understanding properly his duties towards his Creator and his fellow Muslims, and yet serve as a US soldier. The U.S. is leading the war against terrorism which in reality is a war against Islam...."
When thousands of innocent Americans are killed (3,000 in one day) because of a disdain for Western culture, you better believe war is coming. And al-Awlaki is now room temperature because of that hatred for any country supporting freedom from sharia law.
I hope they coated the warhead of the Hellfire missle that killed him with bacon grease before releasing it.
