After four years, jury selection has finally started in the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan. As it begins, Mr. Hasan, who is representing himself, wants EVERYONE to know that he's not at all happy with his attire.
FORT HOOD, Texas, July 9 (UPI) -- Maj. Nidal Hasan, charged with the massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, said Tuesday he wants jurors to know he is being "forced" to wear a U.S. Army uniform.
During Tuesday's hearing, Hasan said he believes the Army uniform "represents an enemy of Islam."
"I can't take any pride in wearing this uniform," Hasan said. "I want the panel to know that, that I am being forced to wear it."
OK, this IS a court martial. But after all the public statements this scum has made, it's a shame, no, make that a disgrace, that he's allowed to wear the uniform at all. Of course it would also be unacceptable to permit him to don his preferred jihadi garb. So why not deck him out in an understated Victoria's Secret negligee . . . and a pig nose!?
