Fort Hood Defendant: 'I Am the Shooter'

August 06, 2013  | 

Nearly four years after going on a deadly shooting rampage at the Fort Hood Army base here in 2009, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan told a jury of senior Army officers on Tuesday that "the evidence will clearly show that I am the shooter."

In an opening statement that took little more than a minute, Major Hasan, seated and speaking quietly, said that there was death and destruction on both sides, but that the evidence presented by the prosecution would show only one side.

He described himself as being on the wrong side of a war against Islam, and seemed close to offering an apology when he said, "We the mujahedeen are imperfect Muslims." He added, "I apologize for any mistakes I've made in this endeavor."

There is no explaining these religeous fanatics except to say they are mentally deranged and/or sociopaths. All we can do is just find them guilty and put them on death row.
