Maj. Nidal Hasan, the man accused of the 2009 Fort Hood massacre, is renouncing his U.S. citizenship.
That news comes days before his trial for the shooting rampage that killed 13 soldiers and wounded more than 30 others on Texas military base.
Hasan just released some of his writings about America and Islam to Fox News.
He renounced his soldier's oath and denounced democracy, saying it is not "permissible" for someone to prefer American democracy over Islamic Sharia law.
Hasan also described the now deceased al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki as his "teacher, mentor and friend."
