Will Obama's Department of Justice pursue hate speech charges against these prosecutors? Have Muslim Brotherhood groups like Hamas-CAIR demanded that the prosecutor be removed for "islamophobia."

But Obama said it was "workplace violence." He is despicable. And Obama did it in Benghazi, too. He knew that was jihad, too. But he blamed our freedoms for the blood on his hands.

Prosecutors Friday likened Maj. Nidal Hasan to a suicide bomber, saying he carefully researched the issue of going on jihad before an attack that left 13 people dead and 32 wounded, all but two of them soldiers.

It took five years, five years, to get to this moment. Look at us a decade after 911. Shame on the electorate.

One interesting point: "until now, the prosecution has avoided stating a motive, but on Friday asked the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, to allow them to present witnesses and evidence that would show Hasan not only studied jihad but argued for it while pursuing a master's degree, and that he claimed U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not justified."

"Motive is not an element in the trial," Osborn told prosecutors. "It's not an element," Henricks replied, "but it is a way to prove an element, which is premeditation."

The day is often called "5/11" in the Fort Hood community.

Here's the thing. Motive should be an element. And I am not talking about the vicious and silly "hate crime" laws which Bush should never have signed off on.

On 911, jihad came to America. The objective of this war is to destroy and defeat this nation. 911 wasn't a criminal act. It was an act of war. Major Hasan's crime is not a law enforcement matter. He attacked our soldiers on American soil. Jihad is war and he should be executed. Motive is everything

"Prosecutors: Hasan was on jihad" MySA, San Antonio, August 2, 2013

FORT HOOD — Prosecutors Friday likened Maj. Nidal Hasan to a suicide bomber, saying he carefully researched the issue of going on jihad before an attack that left 13 people dead and 32 wounded, all but two of them soldiers.

It was the first time the government has made the allegation or cited evidence that would support the claim that Hasan sought to martyr himself at the end of the massacre.

"We believe that just like a suicide bomber, Major Hasan had no intention of leaving 5/11 alive," Col.Steve Henricks, one of three prosecutors, said, referring to the day of the attack.

...

Until now, the prosecution has avoided stating a motive, but on Friday asked the judge, Col. Tara Osborn, to allow them to present witnesses and evidence that would show Hasan not only studied jihad but argued for it while pursuing a master's degree, and that he claimed U.S.-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were not justified.

Prosecutors also said that Hasan modeled his attack on an incident in which then-Sgt. Hasan Akbar killed two soldiers and wounded 14 on March 23, 2003 in Kuwait. Akbar was sentenced to death.

Henricks called Hasan's attack a "copy-cat" killing. Henricks also said that Hasan did what he could to avoid a deploying to the war zone, including entering a master's of psychology fellowship program in August 2007. He quoted Hasan as saying "the Army and the government have another thing coming if they they're going to deploy me."

...

Prosecutors told Osborn that Hasan had one problem with jihad — killing innocent bystanders. To avoid that, he purchased a handgun with a laser sight, Henricks said, and noted that witnesses say the Army psychiatrist avoided killing civilians.

Two civilians, a government civil service employee and a contract police officer, were shot that day. All the other victims were soldiers preparing to deploy.

"Motive is not an element in the trial," Osborn told prosecutors.

"It's not an element," Henricks replied, "but it is a way to prove an element, which is premeditation."
