Note the Double Standard

After reading recent headlines about the U.S. soldier who shot and killed Afghanistan civilians, I couldn't help noticing an irony.  There is all this clamor to try this guy quickly and execute him, never mind his having suffered a traumatic brain injury.  Yet this Major Hasan, who shot up Fort Hood while screaming Allah akbar, still hasn't stood trial . . . and they still are still debating whether he was insane despite clear evidence that he deliberately planned and set out to slay as many infidels as possible.  So we have a guy in a war zone who cracks, and he must be executed immediately.  But a Muslim psychiatrist who was stateside in a nice safe office all day murders 13, wounds 29 of our own guys, his fellow soldiers, and they try to argue the poor lad suffered post-traumatic stress syndrome, from listening to real soldiers who had actual battle experience.  Two and a half years later, they still haven't tried the murderous bastard.
