A defense lawyer for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four others accused of crafting and carrying out the 9/11 atrocity on America wore a hijab at the opening of the Guantanamo trial Saturday in order to show respect for their faith. They might get dirty sexual thoughts if they see some leg! Give me a break!
From Fox News (hat tip: Janet):
The defense attorney who wore a traditional Islamic outfit during the rowdy arraignment of the accused Sept. 11 terrorists is defending her courtroom appeal that other women in the room wear more “appropriate” clothing to the proceedings — out of respect for her client’s Muslim beliefs.
Cheryl Bormann, counsel for defendant Walid bin Attash, attended the arraignment Saturday dressed in a hijab, apparently because her client insisted on it. She further requested that the court order other women to follow that example so that the defendants do not have to avert their eyes “for fear of committing a sin under their faith.”
At a press conference Sunday at Guantanamo Bay, Bormann said she dresses in a hijab at “all times” when she meets with her client “out of respect” for his beliefs. Asked why she requested other women do the same, Bormann said, “When you’re on trial for your life, you need to be focused.”
Bormann, who is not Muslim, claimed the issue came up several years ago, when a paralegal wore “very short skirts” and it became a distraction for the defendants. She said that on Saturday, “somebody” was also dressed “in a way that was not in keeping with my client’s religious beliefs.”
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed—the one we should blow away!
Obama got bin Laden, but the most evil Muslim is alive and well and still practicing Jihad. Last week when our dear leader was chest-beating about his daring raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound and blowing away bin Laden (as if that ended all of our troubles with Islam), I thought about Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) sitting there all fit and trim and smug in Guantanamo Bay still doing his evil best to make fools of us. This trial will be bad but just imagine what it would be if Attorney General Holder had gotten his way and given the terrorist a trial in New York City!
Everyone should read Richard Miniter’s Mastermind, the best book I’ve read this past year. Truly the US-educated Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was the mastermind of most of the worst atrocities visited on the world over more than ten years in the name of Islam. He personally beheaded Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. He had to work hard for years to convince bin Laden that flying planes into buildings would be a master stroke. And, if you wonder why terrorist acts in recent years have largely been foiled, it is because KSM is sitting in a cell in Cuba and the new crop of Jihadists don’t have his brains or blood lust.
So when Obama tries to assure us that he is the macho man who killed our greatest enemy it’s a bunch of B.S. KSM is being coddled and allowed to pull tricks on idiots like this lawyer in her hijab and the average American is told to rest easy—we got him! By the way, note in this passage that KSM throws off his Arab-translating head phones. Who the hell cares, he speaks English, he graduated from a US college after all.
Back to the hearing and “jihad in the courtroom:”
The court hearing for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four co-defendants should have taken a couple of hours at most. Instead it lasted almost 13 hours, including meal and prayer breaks, as the men appeared to make a concerted effort to stall Saturday’s hearing.
They knelt in prayer, ignored the judge, wouldn’t listen to Arabic translations over their head sets and one even insisted on having the more than 20 pages detailing the charges against them read aloud, rather than deferred for later in their case as the judge wanted, which added more than two hours to the proceedings.
“They’re engaging in jihad in a courtroom,” said Debra Burlingame, whose brother, Charles, was the pilot of the plane that flew into the Pentagon. She watched the proceeding from Brooklyn.
