After reading the headlines today about the US soldier who shot up
Afghanistan civilians, I couldn’t help noticing an irony. There is all this
clamor to try this guy quickly and execute him, never mind his having
suffered a traumatic brain injury. Yet this Major Hasan, who shot up Fort
Hood while screaming Allah akbar, still hasn’t stood trial, and they are
still debating whether he was insane, even with the clear evidence regarding
his motive: slay as many infidels as possible.
So we have a guy in a war zone who cracks, and he must be executed immediately.
But this Muslim psychiatrist who was stateside in a nice safe office all day murders 13,
wounds 29 of our own guys, and they try to argue the poor lad suffered
post-traumatic stress syndrome, from listening to real soldiers who had
actual battle experience. Two and a half years later, they still haven’t
tried the murderous bastard.
