EXCLUSIVE — The former U.S. Army major and self-described “soldier of Allah” behind the deadly 2009 massacre at Fort Hood cheered the resurgent Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan in a letter obtained exclusively by the Washington Examiner.
Writing from death row at Fort Leavenworth, Nidal Hasan boasted “We Have Won” and congratulated the Taliban. Hasan, who gunned down 14 people and wounded 43 more, urged the nascent terrorist government to implement its brand of brutal oppression under the guise of religion.
“Congratulations on your victory over those who hate for the Laws of All-Mighty God to be supreme on the land,” Hasan wrote in the letter, dated Aug. 18. “I pray to Allah that He helps you implement Shariah Law full, correctly and fairly.”
Although Hasan, who was radicalized by Imam Anwar al Awlaki and had business cards calling himself a “soldier of Allah,” shouted “Allahu Akbar” during his Nov. 5, 2009, rampage, the Obama administration stubbornly refused to classify the attack as an act of terrorism. Instead, the Pentagon deemed it a case of “workplace violence,” which made victims ineligible for the Purple Heart until Congress intervened. In 2013, Hasan was convicted by a military court for murdering 13 people and sentenced to death.
In his neatly handwritten letter, Hasan asked his attorney, retired Army Col. John Galligan, to deliver his message of congratulations to the Taliban’s leadership — many of whom were held at Guantanamo Bay until they were freed by the Obama administration in a controversial swap for U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
