He Is A Terrorist

When a military judge ruled that accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan could act as his own lawyer, she might have opened the door to more problems for the government than for the defendant. Since day one, critics have blasted the Obama Administration for treating the case as workplace violence instead of terrorism. They claimed Obama didn’t want to admit we’d suffered a deadly terrorist attack on US soil with an election coming up. But the feds argued that there wasn’t enough evidence to call Hasan a terrorist, and that calling him that would undermine his chances of a fair trial. But all that legal hairsplitting could be on the verge of collapsing, thanks to Hasan’s choice of a defense.

It’s been reported that he’s asked the judge to let him defend the shooting of all those American soldiers on grounds that he was acting to defend, quote, “the leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban.” It’s not likely he could win the case by proving that unarmed soldiers in a Texas cafeteria posed an imminent threat to Taliban leaders. But this pretty well shatters any illusions that it was “workplace violence.” The director of the Center for Terrorism Law in San Antonio, Texas, said Hasan himself has made his motives clear, and has now labeled himself as a hardcore, jihadist Islamist murderer. Or as those of us outside Washington call that…a terrorist.

    DON'T be surprised if he is found "not guilty" of Workplace Violence - SINCE IT WASN'T - this will be a watershed moment to SUPPORT Jihad in America.

    this is what is happening where I live,,i copied and pasted to give an idea of what is going on ,,,,Posted roadblocks are also sent to my email so that I can track them. Only actual reports of active roadblocks are tracked, Multiple reports of the same checkpoint are only counted once. Here are the latest stats for the week. Remarkably, there were 22 reported roadblocks this weekend in Lee and bordering counties. There were 8 checkpoints on Friday, 8 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday. Unbelievably, a total of 38 roadblocks have been held just in the first 9 days of June... 29 in Lee county, 4 in Itawamba, 2 in Monroe, 2 in Pontotoc, and 1 in Chickasaw. Now, most won't believe this next one but you are free to check me.. Since April 8, 2013, there have been a whopping 164 checkpoints/roadblocks reported in just Lee, Itawamba, Monroe, Pontotoc and Chickasaw counties of Missisippi. That is two months

    Calling this act anything but an act of terrorism is a gross distortion of the truth. Considering it was done by a member of our military makes it even move heinous.
