Prosecutors in Hasan trial call the spade what it is

From the San-Antonio Express-News:
FORT HOOD — Prosecutors of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan for the first time on Friday voiced what victims of the 2009 rampage at Fort Hood have long said: that the mass shooting was an Islamic terrorist attack.

Col. Steve Henricks, one of three prosecutors, likened Hasan to a suicide bomber, saying Hasan researched going on jihad before the attack that left 13 dead and 32 wounded.

It was the first time the Army has made that allegation. Prosecutors said they would show that Hasan tried to target soldiers and not civilians, and that he intended to martyr himself at the end of the massacre.

“We believe that just like a suicide bomber, Maj. Hasan had no intention of leaving 5/11 alive,” Henricks said without elaborating.

The Nov. 5, 2009 shooting is often called “5/11” in the Killeen area.
CNN reports that the judge has permitted Hasan's internet searches on jihad to be presented as evidence. I congratulate the prosecuting staff for showing the courage to call Hasan's sadism exactly what it is.
