Not sure it is the President's job to determine what crimes Hassan is charged with. Definitely think he should be charged here though. Who would actually make that determination?

How about a SPEEDY trial? Obama put HOLDER IN, he can threaten to take him OUT too if he chose.
WHEN will they rule on this, in 30 years?
Lack of a speedy trial on this is itself another Obamination.

As Commander in Chief, he would be the final prosecutor in thie case. You really don't think the military people aren't looking over their shoulders on this one? How do you think Hasan wasn't stopped before he made his move?

Theoretically the Base Commander would decide the charges. He doesn't want anymore sierra stains on his record so he will definitely check with his boss, who will check with his boss until THE boss makes the call

If you want to make rank you get along by going along.

The convening officer who preferred charges-Fort Hood Commander.

I have written recently of President Obama's "covert zeal" for the spread of abortion. I took that phrase from Abraham Lincoln's description of how President Franklin Pierce and Sen. Stephen A. Douglas sought--covertly--to spread slavery in the 1850s. In that column, I noted specific actions of this president to advance abortion-on-demand and to force us all to pay for it.

Now, I want to focus on something Mr. Obama is not doing. He is not charging Nidal Hasan, the accused Fort Hood killer, with violation of the Unborn Victims of Violence Act (UVVA). This law was passed and signed...
