The officer convicted of the Fort Hood massacre lost something that he had made a stand to keep.

FOX News Radio’s Ron Flatter reports:

Audio clip:

It could be said that Army Major Nidal Hasan fought harder for his beard than for his life.

(Tom Rheinlander) “The unanimous finding of guilty.”

The verdict delivered last month at Fort Hood in Texas where Hasan was convicted of the ’09 massacre that left 13 people dead.

On death row at a Kansas military prison, Hasan had his face forcibly shaven. He fought to keep the beard during his court martial saying his religious rights trumped Army regulations. The dispute led to a changing of the judge. But Hasan mounted virtually no defense against the 45 charges of which he was found guilty or against the prosecution’s call for his execution.
