Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

'Day of Reckoning' but for who? Trial Starts for Accused Fort Hood Shooter (& Government of the United States)

Major Nidal Malik Hasan,
USA, Fort Hood
Thirteen people were killed, including a pregnant soldier, and 32 others were injured when Hasan allegedly opened fire at a military ceremony Nov. 5, 2009.

Nearly four years later, as part of the trial, the survivors are expected to come face to face with Hasan during cross examination, as the accused shooter has opted to serve as his own lawyer in military court.

"We [victims and family members of the deceased] have long awaited this day to come, while still trying to cope and survive from not just the physical injuries that were received, but the gross mistreatment the government has inflicted upon us," Kimberly Munley, a police officer who responded to the shooting and engaged Hasan, told ABC News today. "I pray for everyone who will have to reopen the wounds they never healed from because of the government's negligent care and the continued delay of justice that is so long overdue."  - ABC News
