I'm glad to hear this SOB gets the needle. Deliberately killing your team-mates in wartime should get the hangman. Period.
Now, does anyone else find it odd that the media has pretty much been dead quiet about this? Have you also thought that if this was a white guy, who happened to be, let's say, Catholic - that this wouldn't be plastered all over the place as a racist act of a desperate religious zealot.
But, as has been pointed out here before, if you are of minority status and of a peaceful, loving religion like Islam, then we don't really like talking about this stuff.
I mean, it's not till you get mid-way through this story that you see: "My life will not be complete unless America is destroyed."
