Colossal Unfairness

It's bad enough that "workplace violence" badly distorts the actual events, the culprit who perpetrated them and his intentions but now the "alleged" may question his victims:

A military judge Monday granted Hasan's request to represent himself at his upcoming murder trial, and Hasan later hinted that he would try to justify the attack, revealing for the first time his defense strategy.
Hasan, an American-born Muslim, said he would use a "defense of others" strategy, which experts say requires defendants to prove they were protecting other people from imminent danger.

Will Major Hasan treat his witnesses as hostile by any chance?
