News that Army Judge COL Osborne has ruled that Nidal Hasan’s power point presentations and email contacts with Anwar al-Awlaki cannot be introduced as evidence is disturbing. This is the judge who was brought on because the previous Army Judge demanded Nidal Hasan shave his beard and present a military appearance — and this judge allowed the bearded Islamic jihadist to defy Army discipline. For Judge Osborn to rule that the evidence was, well, “too old,” perhaps if there had not been a four-year wait this would have not been the case. Why has Hasan not been charged with treason and aiding the enemy, as PFC Bradley Manning was? Are there invisible hands involved in this case? It appears that political correctness is ruling the day in the Army that I love.

Today the Army decided to seek the death penalty in the case of SSG Bales who murdered civilians in Afghanistan.
Three weeks ago the Army relieved the Military Judge from the Maj Nidal Hasan case and decided Hasan could keep his jihadist beard. You’ll recall Maj Hasan shot 43 American soldiers and Department of the Army civilians, killing 13 three years ago and yet we are still nowhere close to a trial.
A Marine combat veteran sits in a Mexican jail on bogus charges and the State Department tells the parents they can do nothing…and the White House Press Secretary has never heard of it.
This is the crazy, mixed-up world we live in. And America just voted for four more years.
