FORT BRAGG, N.C. – A military jury sentenced a soldier to death Thursday for a deadly grenade and rifle attack on his own comrades during the opening days of the Iraq invasion, a barrage that prosecutors said was triggered by religious extremism.
Sgt. Hasan Akbar, who gave a brief, barely audible apology hours earlier, stood at attention between his lawyers as the verdict was delivered. He showed no emotion.
It’s a military court-martial so there is a very good chance that the sentence will be carried out. It will be by lethal injection though. Instead of being beheaded with a dull knife on national TV like he deserves.
Look for him to become a liberal martyr like that other murdering scum Mumia.
