Nidal Hasan Speaks Up

The killer shrink of Fort Hood, Major Nidal Hasan, is acting pro se in his defense for his upcoming trial, and, boy, does he have a fool for a client.

Maj. Hasan delivered a statement yesterday to Fox News in which he apologized to his fellow mujahideen for letting them down, and repented before Allah for his service in the U.S. Army.

So much for four years of dedicated effort by the Obama administration and the media to avoiding discussing JIM in connection with Fort Hood.

Below are excerpts from the accompanying Fox News article:

Acting as his own attorney, accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan has released a statement to Fox News claiming that the U.S. military is at war with his religion.


“My complicity was on behalf of a government that openly acknowledges that it would hate for the law of Almighty Allah to be the supreme law of the land,” the 42-year-old Army psychiatrist said. Hasan then apparently asked if this was a war on Islam. “You bet it is,” he said. “I participated in it.”

The statement, which begins “In the name of Almighty Allah, the most gracious and the most merciful, my name is Nidal Hasan, Major Nidal Hasan, and I would like to convey a message to the world,” runs more than six pages.

Hasan also says he regrets his years in the Army, claiming that his service was inconsistent with his religious beliefs. “I would like to begin by repenting to Almighty Allah and apologize to the (Mujahideen), the believers, and the innocent. I ask for their forgiveness and their prayers. I ask for their forgiveness for participating in the illegal and immoral aggression against Muslims, their religion and their lands,” he said.

Hasan also criticized U.S. policy in the Middle East toward the Palestinians.


It is believed to be the first lengthy statement by the Fort Hood suspect, whose court martial begins August 6. The judge in Hasan’s case recently ruled that he cannot argue as part of his defense that the shooting was an effort to protect Taliban leaders in Afghanistan – the so-called “defense of others” strategy.

George Stratton and his son — who was wounded in the attack — will both testify at the trial. Stratton told Fox News he is not surprised by the statement.

“I have all along believed Nidal Hasan to be a Muslim terrorist, so it confirms what I’ve always thought,” Stratton said. “I believe that’s exactly how he felt when he did what he did. We should take him at his word.”

  1. This is rather awkward…embarrassing even…

    One wonders how this might be spun. There are many mitigation techniques available.

    Time will tell

  2. Dear Major Hasan,

    We will get out of your lands when you get the [expletive] out of ours, and take your despicable “religion” with you.
    And everywhere that Islam went, chaos was sure to follow.

    • No matter what country, a philosophy/lifestile such as most moslems interpret islam, has no place on this earth. Let’s defend personal liberties and civilization as we know it.

  3. I don’t think anyone should be surprised by Hassan’s statements. I’ve always thought that his logical defense would be one of “religious freedom”. Allah told him to do it, and he can cite chapter and verse(or “Sura”)to back it up. Aren’t we supposed to acknowledge that Islam is the Religion of Peace? I’ve heard two American presidents say so! Who are WE to judge? If God told you to do something, how could you NOT do it? Who are we to dispute the commandments of Allah?
    I think President Obama should come to this man’s defense.
    On television.
    Don’t we believe in religious freedom?

  4. Well, well, well. Hassan has confessed to treason. Now, after a suitable period of i-dotting and t-crossing, he can be taken out and shot – as he should have been five minutes after the incident.

    • I heard that he still pulls his FULL military officer salary – which he surely gives to his favorite Islamic ‘charities’ which are terror organizations….

  5. Why is it taking so long to execute this mass murderer? Every minute he is still alive is an insult to every American.

  6. The willful ignorance of dhimmified western governments not to take islam at its word is a secondary act of (psychological) terrorism perpetrated against their peoples making those governments complicit in the primary act of jihad.

  8. Only a traitor would try to disguise this traitor’s crime as “workplace violence.” This is blatant, unabashed terrorism. This is a case of one traitor trying to cover for another. I wouldn’t be surprised if Obamao pardons him when he leaves office. Especially with Holder still in place. He loves Islamic terrorists the most!

    Yes, but please remember that all of the ‘Muslim’ east is located on Christian lands. The following regions were all Christian, until invaded and subjugated by Islam:

    Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey. While much of Iraq was majority Jewish, with Judaism’s greatest university being located (originally) at Pumbeditha, which is now called Fallujah.
