apparently, Hasan will be tried by a military court rather than federal court. I find this interesting in that it's unlikely he will be charged with terrorism but will be charged with murder.
seems obvious that his lawyer doesn't want his client put in Guantanamo Bay. Being tried as a terrorist really shackles the attorney.
I can't see any way he could be tried by anything but a military court.
Even in civilian court, he would be charged with murder, but this is clearly under military jurisdiction. Why would anyone assume otherwise?
