Fort Hood killer seeks another trial delay; second plotter seeks dismissal.

Two updates on two Muslim jihadis. Both infiltrated and betrayed the U.S. military. Both now waging legal jihad. One killed 15, the other caught before murdering untold numbers in the name of Islam.

More convenience? Moving the trial and a possible conviction closer to election day? via Fort Hood shooting suspect seeks trial delay again – NewsTimes.

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Attorneys for the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage have asked to further postpone his military trial until October.

Maj. Nidal Hasan’s (nih-DAHL’ hah-SAHN’) attorneys didn’t say during a pretrial hearing Wednesday why they want the trial postponed from June until October. The judge, Col. Gregory Gross, previously delayed it from March until June. He could rule on the matter next week.

Gross granted the defense team’s request Wednesday for a government-paid forensic pathologist to review autopsy reports. He denied prosecutors’ request to admit evidence before the trial, including 911 calls made from the Texas Army post during the November 2009 attack.

Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. He faces the death penalty if convicted.
