SNIPPET: "Lawyers for the so-called "Lady Al Qaeda" are up in arms because spectators at her trial have to show identification and sign in.
The extra security check comes on top of a metal detector placed outside the doorway of the Manhattan courtroom where Aafia Siddiqui is on trial for attempted murder.
Her defense team said Thursday the precautions are depriving her of a fair trial."

SNIPPET: “”If they have a Zionist or Israeli background...they are all mad at me,” said Aafia Siddiqui, a U.S.-trained neuroscientist charged with attempted murder.
“I have a feeling everyone here is them - subject to genetic testing....They should be excluded if you want to be fair,” she told Manhattan Federal Judge Richard Berman.”
SNIPPET: “Berman ruled the jury can hear about the target list and other handwritten notes but tossed as evidence the chemicals and mass-produced documents from “how-to” terror manuals.
Prosecutors also are barred from bringing up Siddiqui’s alleged ties or sympathies with Al Qaeda because they would create a bias.”

American-trained neuroscientist charged with trying to kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan

An American-trained Pakistani neuroscientist with ties to operatives of Al Qaeda has been charged with trying to kill American soldiers and FBI agents in a police station in Afghanistan last month, and was scheduled to face a judge in New York on Tuesday, the U.S. Justice Department.
The scientist, Aafia Siddiqui, who studied at Brandeis University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was transferred Monday to New York and was expected to be arraigned Tuesday on charges of attempted murder and assault, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York said in a statement.
...Americans entered a room in the police station, unaware that Siddiqui was being held there, unsecured, behind a curtain. One of the soldiers, a warrant officer, sat down and placed his M-4 rifle on the floor next to the curtain.
Shortly after the meeting began, the other soldier, a captain, heard a woman yelling from behind the curtain. He turned to see Siddiqui pointing the warrant officer’s rifle at him.
The interpreter sitting closest to Siddiqui lunged at her and pushed the rifle away as she pulled the trigger and shouted, “God is great!” She fired at least two shots, but no one was hit. The warrant officer returned fire, hitting Siddiqui at least once in the torso.
Siddiqui struggled when officers tried to subdue her, shouting in English that she wanted to kill Americans. She eventually lost consciousness.

They screwed up. She should have been killed. Foolish.
Civilian courts for terrorists have been and continue to be a disaster. President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and Progressives shrilly advocated this course while President Bush defended America. Democrats will face the nations voters in November.
“We don’t have a fair chance of sneaking in a suicide bomber. Boo hoo! Not fair!”
As late as the late 1950s, cop-killers were never captured alive.
No problemo with Jews when it came to getting a top-notch education, eh?
