Attorney in hijab defends call for other women at 9/11 hearing to wear 'appropriate' clothing
Foxnews ^ | 05/06/2012 | unknown

Posted on 05/06/2012 6:36:22 PM PDT by redreno

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."

Under the guise of something called the “JOHN ADAMS PROJECTS”, the ACLU and these defense attorneys stalked active and retired CIA officers.

They took photographs of these individuals and their families.

These traitorous SOB’s then turned over these photos along with information such as the officer’s addresses to the terrorist.

These degenerates stated they did this in order to identify the men who “tortured” the terrorist.

Who knows how much of this information was passed on to the enemy?

In January, the Obama DOJ cleared the ACLU and defense attorneys of any wrongdoing.

Shocking isn’t it?

>>> "Bormann, who is N-O-T Muslim, claimed...."<<<

I would think that would be a little sacrilegious if she wore one. Imagine if Sarah Palin wore one. I wouldn't want to be in the same building with her, as there would probably be a 747 crashing into it within 15 minutes.

How about a Bush/Cheney t shirt and a bacon miniskirt? Could you imagine the reaction if a Christian made this request? Remember how John Ashcroft was ridiculed when he had the topless statue covered?

>>> "The judge should offer him a blindfold that he could wear in court."<<<

Great idea with the blindfold. Then, they could just lead him outside and stand him against a wall, offer him a cigarette, and BANG.

JUDGE: "Court is now dismissed".

“”If because of someone’s religious beliefs, they can’t focus when somebody in the courtroom is dressed in a particular way, I feel it is incumbent upon myself as a counsel to point that out and ask for some consideration from the prosecution,” she said....”

Were the defendant an equally socially conservative Christian, do we need to ask if she would offer the same consideration? Somehow, I strongly doubt it and on that point we must surely see that something else it at work, maybe even a form of subservience to a pagan religion that has a strange attraction on this foolish woman. I say foolish because of taquiyya and other Islamic doctrines that have the effect of fully taking advantage of any weakness of the characters of those who have not accepted its demand to become a believer.

If I were the opposing attorney I would tell the Judge that this was going to be a long trial because I would appeal such an order all the way to the Supreme Court. Oh, ever so politely, though.

She said that on Saturday, "somebody" was also dressed "in a way that was not in keeping with my client's religious beliefs."

It is because of her client's religious beliefs that they are on trial-- because of what those beliefs led them to do.

It is because of her client's religious beliefs that two wars were subsequently fought.

It is because of her client's religious beliefs that women have been subjugated for centuries.

If this lawyer had any principles at all, she would go into conference wearing lingerie and spread with bacon grease.

Get out of that hajib...and to hell with the desires of her clients....this is one more effort by them to manipulate the court..the judge should order her into appropriate western wear ( unless she herself is a muzzie) and put a stop to the high jinks of these terrorists.

When was the Muslim treatment of women considered appropriate? Muslims hate women and use them for their degenerate sexual perversions. In fact, a woman is only useful to bear sons. Other than than, any animal or boy will do.

used to was be-a righteous judge would listen politely then
just as politely tell the freak -that this is America and we do not tell others how to dress like the enemy to make the enemy more comfortable —especially when the enemy is charged with having helped prosecute the worst act of war against America and Americans and the very fact that such Evil remains alive and is give a fair trial like they could never hope to find anywhere else ought be good enough. If they continue to manifest their contempt for American justice we could do this without their evil presence.

Winning The Future? ;o)

That court is out of control. Thankfully, this trial won’t be in our court system. But, as long as the judge allows them the time, they will mock us and continue their jihad.

Thirteen hours for what should have been a two hour hearing...MAX?

Hopefully, this will end up being a regular military tribunal, and not the circus that it’s been.
