Facing a possible death penalty for his fatal attack on fellow soldiers, Sgt. Hasan Akbar will make an unsworn statement to the jury in his own defense, a lawyer said Wednesday.
The statement by Akbar is to come Thursday, the fourth day of the sentencing phase of his court-martial, said the defense lawyer, Maj. David Coombs. Akbar was convicted last week of premeditated murder and attempted murder in the March 2003 attack on the 101st Airborne Division at Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait.
Prosecutors have said Akbar, 34, launched the attack because he was concerned about U.S. troops killing fellow Muslims in the war.
Why am I puzzled? As a good little jihadist cut throat why isn’t he eagerly awaiting his 72 vestal virgins? His
lawyer shyster has been quoted saying Akbar will fight the death penalty. So, does he not believe the jihadist rhetoric and afraid their are no virgins waiting his demise? Apparently so.
Another puzzling thing is how anyone can support this murderous bastard, but they do.
