Will the convicted Fort Hood shooter be put to death?
Witnesses began testifying Monday in the sentencing phase for Major Nidal Hasan, who was found guilty on Friday of 13 counts of murder and thirty-two counts of attempted murder.
The death penalty is a rare sentence for the U.S. military, and would ultimately require approval from the president himself.

Major Nidal Hasan, who is defending himself against charges that he killed 13 people in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood nearly three years ago, chose not to call a single witness in his own defense.
The army psychiatrist has admitted he was the shooter but denies he did anything wrong, claiming the deadly rampage was "for the greater cause of helping my Muslim brothers."
If convicted, he faces the death penalty, which may be exactly what he wants.
OutFront: Ed Lavandera is at Fort Hood with the story.
New details are emerging tonight about what exactly happened on the day of the Fort Hood massacre.
Dozens of victims and witnesses have taken the stand in the trial of Nidal Hasan, who has admitted to killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in a shooting rampage in 2009.
From their testimonies, we have been able to recount the events of that day.
Ed Lavandera has this OutFront investigation.
Major Nidal Hasan, the shooter in the Fort Hood massacre, wants the death penalty, according to his stand-by attorneys, who are up in arms because they refuse to help their client die.
Ed Lavandera is OutFront with the bizarre twist to this case.
Major Nidal Hasan confessed to a jury this morning that he shot and killed 13 people at the Fort Hood Army base.
And because the former army psychiatrist is representing himself, he's also now cross-examing his own victims.
Ed Lavandera was in the courtroom and is OutFront with more.
