Fort Hood shooter, Nidal Malik Hasan is successfully waging Jihad from his prison cell. His latest victim is the judge, who was removed from the case after ruling that Hasan should be forcibly shaved.
The military’s highest court ousted the judge in the Fort Hood shooting case Monday and threw out his order to have the suspect’s beard forcibly shaved before his court-martial.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled that Col. Gregory Gross didn’t appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.
But the court said it was not ruling on whether the judge’s order violated Hasan’s religious rights. Hasan has argued that his beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith, although facial hair violates Army regulations.
“Should the next military judge find it necessary to address (Hasan’s) beard, such issues should be addressed and litigated anew,” judges wrote in the ruling.
Hasan appealed after Gross ordered that he must be clean-shaven or be forcibly shaved before his court-martial, a military trial.
The logical question that no one seems interested in asking is: If Hasan’s insistence that he not shave because of a religious objection, why did he not object to being clean shaven when he was a psychiatrist in the Army?
The answer is obvious: Muruna.
