Remember when Barack Obama said the murder of 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009 by Islamic terrorist Nidal Hasan was merely “workplace violence“?
Nidal Hasan shot and killed 13 people and wounded 32 others at Fort Hood in 2009.
Hasan is currently on death row at Fort Leavenworth Prison in Kansas.
Hasan congratulated the Taliban on its takeover of Afghanistan in a letter he directed his attorney, retired Army Col. John Galligan, to give to Taliban leaders.
Fox News reported:
Nidal Hasan, the radical Islamic terrorist who murdered 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009, wrote a letter from death row, congratulating the Taliban as the terrorist group took control of Afghanistan.
“All-Praises be to All-Mighty Allah! Congratulations on your victory over those who hate for the Laws of All-Mighty God to be supreme on the land,” Hasan wrote in a message he directed Galligan to forward to Taliban leadership.
“I pray to Allah that He helps you implement Shariah Law fully, correctly, and fairly,” Hasan added. Shariah refers to Islamic law, interpretations of which vary widely. Extremists like Hasan and the Taliban interpret Shariah harshly, rejecting many modern conceptions of human rights, especially women’s rights and religious freedom.
“We must learn from the nations of the past and not let our wretchedness overcome us thus earning His (God’s) wrath,” Hasan added. “It is to All-Mighty God we give thanks!”
“The letter from my client Major Nidal Hasan does not come as any surprise – it reflects the deeply held convictions he has for his Islamic faith and his perceived value of Sharia Law,” Galligan told Fox News in a statement on Wednesday. “I believe he is pleased to see that the Biden Administration is now seemingly willing to engage with the Taliban as de facto government in Afghanistan.”
Former Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford, a survivor of the Fort Hood terror attack who was shot seven times, blasted Hasan in a statement to Fox News.
“My response to him, personally, is I give all my praises to my God who taught me to be a forgiving person,” Lunsford told Fox News. “Allah is not the one who still has him taking in oxygen right now. Allah is not the one who spared his life. Allah is not the one who stopped me from wrapping my hands around his neck when I was less than three feet away from him in the court room.”
“He needs to be thankful that he is alive. He needs to be thankful that we did not try him according to Shariah Law,” Lunsford continued.
