The US-born Muslim said the attack on unarmed soldiers was motivated by a desire to protect insurgents fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He offered no defence in his trial.
The same jury that sentenced him to death today found him guilty last week in the attack, which also wounded more than 30 people.
Before an execution date is set, the sentence will face years of appeals.
