Hasan Case Goes to GCMCA

It's no surprise that Col Morgan Lamb, the Special Court-Martial Convening Authority (SPCMCA) in the Fort Hood killings case against Major Nidal Hasan recommended the case be referred to a general court-martial as a capital case today. Now it is up to the General Court-Martial Convening Authority to make the final decision whether to refer the case to court-martial and whether the death penalty will be a sentencing option, should a court-martial panel convict Hasan.
