"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."
My recommendation is for women in that courtroom to dress like hookers and smear themselves w/ bacon grease.
"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." Ummm . . . so the judge has to do what the defendants tell him to do?? SINCE WHEN????
Can someone please explain to me why the defendants are provided their own personal library to peruse during the trial??? Why are they permitted to have a stack of magazines (and you can bet they ain't Ladies Home Journal--more like al-Qaeda's Inspire) and a Qur'an??? WHY is the judge allowing them to inject shari'a law into these proceedings???
