'Lady Al Qaeda' trial: Suspected terrorist Aafia Siddiqui tossed from courtroom after outburst
NY Daily News ^ | 1/14/2010 | Alison Gendar

A jury was chosen Thursday in the "Lady Al Qaeda" trial - but not before the defendant interrupted the process with more outbursts and was tossed from the courtroom.

A day after she demanded Jews be excluded from the jury, Aafia Siddiqui went to deliver more rants about Jews and the 9/11 terror attacks.

"I have nothing to do with 9/11," she said when a potential juror who cited her personal experience on Sept. 11 was dismissed.

Siddiqui is on trial in Manhattan federal court for attempted murder.

She was arrested by Afghan police after being caught in July 2008 with two pounds of sodium cyanide, a list of New York targets, and instructions for chemical and biological weapons, prosecutors say.

When an American team tried to question her, she allegedly grabbed an unsecured M-4 rifle and opened fire.

A preview of what we can expect from the animals of Gitmo. With every hour of every day that passes I hate Obama ever more than I did the day before.

It was reported on, but these stories barely see the light of day in this administration.

But did you know there was a White House vegetable garden?

And believe me - she’s NO “Lady”.

Background on scumstress Dr. Aafia Siddiqui:

On a hot summer morning 18 months ago a team of four Americans – two FBI agents and two army officers – rolled into Ghazni, a dusty town 50 miles south of Kabul. They had come to interview two unusual prisoners: a woman in a burka and her 11-year-old son, arrested the day before.

Afghan police accused the mysterious pair of being suicide bombers. What interested the Americans, though, was what they were carrying: notes about a “mass casualty attack” in the US on targets including the Statue of Liberty and a collection of jars and bottles containing “chemical and gel substances”.

At the town police station the Americans were directed into a room where, unknown to them, the woman was waiting behind a long yellow curtain. One soldier sat down, laying his M-4 rifle by his foot, next to the curtain. Moments later it twitched back.

The woman was standing there, pointing the officer’s gun at his head. A translator lunged at her, but too late. She fired twice, shouting “Get the fuck out of here!” and “Allahu Akbar!” Nobody was hit. As the translator wrestled with the woman, the second soldier drew his pistol and fired, hitting her in the abdomen. She went down, still kicking and shouting that she wanted “to kill Americans”. Then she passed out....

This is the only place I’ve seen reporting this trial. Completely unknown on the Left Coast.

They should have shot her down like a dirty damn dog and saved the taxpayers a trial!

You’re right. She’s a pretty big fish and the trial is not being reported in the MSM.

Had we done that, our military would yet again be on trial for murder.

You’re correct, but the search for her, her arrest and subsequent indictment have been reported.

Presently, her circus trial is not being reported.

There’s more chance of her being named some type of “Outreach” Director, I’m afraid.

>>>...grabbed an unsecured M-4 rifle...<<<

When a terrorist grabs an unsecured M-4 [Saw] it's a "rifle". If a white conservative was seen carrying an M-4, it would be a dangerous fully automatic assault weapon!!

What in the hell is one of those machines left sitting around unsecured if the presence of a terrorist for in the first place???? We are getting sloppy - Hasan, Amadulladab hotpants, 8 CIA bombed by spy in Afghan....

I don't think the bad guys are getting better....we're getting careless.
