Nidal Hasan Releases Documents Denouncing US Citizenship

FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) -

Accused Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hasan has renounced his U.S. citizenship and abandoned his military oath.

In a seven page hand written and typed letters to Fox News, at least one of the letters Hasan released on Thursday was from 2012, according to Fox News. 

Hasan writes in one letter denouncing his citizenship from the US. 

He says, "I Nadal Hasan, am compelled to renounce my oaths of alliances that require me to support or defend a man made constitution. I therefore formally renounce my oath of office as well as any other implicit or explicit oaths I have made. This includes my citizenship."

In another document, Hasan declares American democracy and Shariha Law are incompatible.

He says, "There is an inherent and irreconcilable conflict. In an American democracy 'we the people' govern according to what 'we the people' think is right or wrong, even if it specifically goes against what All-Mighty God commands.

The papers also delved into the former army psychiatrists's relationship with a radical Muslim cleric. Fox News says that Hasan's civil lawyer verified the documents and his signature.

These documents could challenge the Department of Defense's classification of the attack as "work place violence."

This information comes less than a week before Hasan's court-martial is due to start.
