Judge Removed In Fort Hood Shooting Rampage Case

Does Hasan have a beard in this picture? No he doesn't. This has got to be the stupidest thing I've heard in a long time. When Hasan was "on the job" he didn't find it necessary to grow a beard so how can he now use it as an excuse to avoid being tried for mass murder?

As for prolonging the agony the families and the wounded are going through, because Hasan wants to play games, put him on trial anyway. He has already shown he has no respect for the military anyway.

The military's highest court ousted the judge in the Fort Hood shooting case Monday and threw out his order to have the suspect's beard forcibly shaved before his court-martial.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled that Col. Gregory Gross didn't appear impartial while presiding over the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post that killed 13 people and wounded more than two dozen others.

But the court said it was not ruling on whether the judge's order violated Hasan's religious rights. Hasan has argued that his beard is a requirement of his Muslim faith, although facial hair violates Army regulations.

The court-martial had been set to begin three months ago but has been on hold pending the appeals.
