Fort Hood Gunman Pens Handwritten Letter Offering Congrats to Taliban From Death Row
The former U.S. Army major who once described himself as a “soldier of Allah” who is responsible for carrying out the massacre at Fort Hood back in 2009 penned a letter cheering the work of the Taliban and congratulated the terrorist organization for being able to takeover Afghanistan.
Why is this guy still breathing above ground? Let’s get to work and put the man out of his misery and out of our lives!
Writing from death row at Fort Leavenworth , Nidal Hasan boasted “We Have Won” and congratulated the Taliban. Hasan, who gunned down 14 people and wounded 43 more, urged the nascent terrorist government to implement its brand of brutal oppression under the guise of religion.
“Congratulations on your victory over those who hate for the Laws of All-Mighty God to be supreme on the land,” Hasan statedin the letter, dated Aug. 18. “I pray to Allah that He helps you implement Shariah Law full, correctly and fairly.”
Although Hasan, who was radicalized by the infamous Imam Anwar al Awlaki and had business cards calling himself a “soldier of Allah,” shouted “Allahu Akbar” during his Nov. 5, 2009, rampage, the Obama administration stubbornly refused to classify the attack as an act of terrorism. Instead, the Pentagon deemed it a case of “workplace violence,” which made victims ineligible for the Purple Heart until Congress intervened. In 2013, Hasan was convicted by a military court for murdering 13 people and sentenced to death.
In his neatly handwritten letter, Hasan asked his attorney, retired Army Col. John Galligan, to deliver his message of congratulations to the Taliban’s leadership — many of whom were held at Guantanamo Bay until they were freed by the Obama administration in a controversial swap for U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl .
“I’m not at all surprised by Major Nidal Hasan’s recent statement — he’s always been consistent in the terms of his support for the governments to be rooted upon Sharia law,” Galligan, who is currently working on the appeal for Hasan’s court-martial conviction and death sentence, went on to say. “Given the Taliban victory in Afghanistan and President Biden ’s apparent capitulation on many fronts, Nidal Hasan and I are anxious to see what, if any, action will be taken with respect to the individuals still incarcerated at Guantanamo.”
“Hasan is paralyzed after being wounded during the attack, in which he fired hundreds of rounds into the Killeen, Texas, base’s packed deployment center. Galligan said his client is fighting his current jailers over the length of his beard and is in poor health,” The WE report said.
Former U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, who survived the horrific attack by Hasan, though he was shot six times, stated that the troop withdrawal from Afghanistan made this a tough time for folks who served in the military.
“Hasan stopped my deployment to Afghanistan, but for the soldiers who are feeling like their sacrifice was for nothing, they should know we can’t control what politicians do, but we can control how we stand up for each other in this difficult time,” Manning said.
He then replied to Hasan’s message to the world by saying, “I am not surprised that he would ally himself with a group of people who feel it necessary to kill women and children.”
