A military appeals court placed the trial for accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan on hold indefinitely Friday amid continuing issues surrounding Hasan’s refusal to shave his beard, CNN reported.

The court martial was first halted Wednesday so the appeals court could consider the Army psychiatrist’s objections to being forcibly shaved. He has been fined and held in contempt repeatedly for remaining bearded, which is a violation of Army regulations, but says the facial hair is an expression of his faith. Hasan, 41, is an American-born Muslim.

Hasan’s court martial had been scheduled to start Monday for the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood, for which he faces 13 charges of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted meditated murder.

  1. Beard or no beard, the trial should go ahead. These stupid delay tactics cost money and should not be tolerated. In fact, his refusal to shave his beard should be seen as his belief in militant Islam, and should go against any psychiatric or insanity claims that he makes.
    Make an example of this man and show the Muslim world that we will not put up with their attempts to play around with the justice system. Muslim shenanigans should be discouraged by a firm grip, and a refusal to allow their childish, insubordinate nonsense to continue.

  2. It is postponed until after the election at the very least. Trying Fieldmarshal Hasan will be putting Islam on trial. No one in America has the guts to do that. And certainly no politician right, left or center. And when they do proceed it will be a spectacle of the pathetic dhimmitude.

  3. He doesn’t want to face his maker without a beard. Fine. Let him keep the beard, but stitch his corpse into a pigskin before burial.

  4. Put him in a burka (the infamous hiding place for all of the “brave & pious” mucho-crap-in-genes of islam) & wheel him out to the rope.

    This has gone on far too long.

  5. Can we just get this shit over and done with, why is he allowed to remain on this planet living it up in his taxpayer funded cell.

  6. James Boom they have been politically active in a left wing sort of way for decades, people are just starting to realize this.

  7. I was always under the impression that if an offender was to grow or,shave off any facial hair while under the “Guidance” of the Law,they were Guilty of trying to “change their identity” while in Custody,which is a “no-no” in any Country.
