President prejudices the prosecution of Major Hasan?

Kens5.com reports:

While Major Nidal Hasan recovers in a hospital, the depth and complexity of the legal case which could soon surround him is expansive and could take years to conclude, according to well-known defense attorney, Jack Zimmermann.

In addition to pretrial statements, it is to be considered that the president as commander in chief is the one who ultimately approves a death sentence and signs the warrant.  Should President Obama remain in office for a second term, it’s possible he might get to make that decision.  He already has one military death penalty warrant sitting somewhere in his office for consideration.
