    Would it be terrorism if one of our soldiers screamed "praise jesus!" as he shot or dropped a bomb on an enemy combatant?
    A military target on a military base is included in the definition of.....or any segment of a government or civilian population. Again, this guy's motives, actions and words, all show his purpose.

    The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly 2009 Fort Hood attack wants to represent himself at his upcoming murder trial, which means he could question the nearly three dozen soldiers he's accused of wounding in the shooting rampage.

    Maj. Nidal Hasan's request, announced Wednesday by Fort Hood officials, is to be considered at a pretrial hearing next week. The request prompted the military judge, Col. Tara Osborn, to delay jury selection to June 5, about a week after it was scheduled to start.

    Hasan, an American-born Muslim, faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the Nov. 5, 2009, attack on the Texas Army post, about 125 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

    Military law allows defendants to represent themselves, but the judge will ask Hasan's attorneys to stay throughout the trial in case he asks for their help, according to court-martial guidelines. Two of Hasan's three Army attorneys have represented him since shortly after his arrest.

    At a hearing earlier this month, Hasan told Osborn that he wanted to plead guilty. But Army rules prohibit a judge from accepting a guilty plea to charges that could result in a death sentence. Osborn also denied his request to plead guilty to lesser murder charges, citing legal issues that could have arisen because his death penalty trial still would have proceeded.....snip~

    First he wanted the Judge to Allow him to Enter a Guilty Plea. Now he wants to Represent himself. Jury selection now has been delayed. He did fire one attorney. So not only is he getting paid. Defying court orders, refusing Military Orders.....but now will play with as much of the law as he can. Again why is this taking so long?

    Why shouldn't this be considered an Act of Terrorism?
    What will the Army will allow him next? Maybe a short term relationship with Jodi Arias...

    Intellectually I know the death penalty is wrong, occassionally emotionally I wish someone would get it. Never said I was perfect...
    How do you intellectually twist your brain into being pro-abortion, but against killing an axe murderer. LOL, biggest hypocrisy in a long list of liberal hypocrisies.

    Attacking military targets is not terrorism. It doesn't matter what your motivation was.

    Heya Duece. Not according to the FBI.....that's why the Definition is written that way. All one has to do is take a Look at how the attack on the USS Cole was assessed.

    If attacking military targets counts as terrorism, better arrest basically the entire US military structure.

    Or perhaps motive also plays a part in the accusation.
