Hasan silent so far amid Fort Hood shooting trial

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) - The trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan is set to resume after more than 40 witnesses described how he prepared and carried out a shooting massacre that left 13 dead at Fort Hood.

Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted of murder and attempted murder in the November 2009 shootings.

So far, he's mostly watched in silence as those wounded in the attack described how he shouted "Allahu Akbar!" - Arabic for "God is great" - and drew a weapon and opened fire on unarmed soldiers. Hasan is representing himself, but has raised few objections and asked only two witnesses questions.

His standby defense attorneys have accused him of seeking the death penalty and say they'll ask an appeals court to step in to limit their responsibilities.
