The disturbing craziness in the Guantanamo court
Easily the most offensive part in all this trial hearing besides the defendants' refusal to cooperate was the dhimmitude of defense lawyer Cheryl Bormann, who wore an abaya in the court (Hat tip: Diana West):
This legal eagle has made herself over into the draped defender.No, this isn't a matter of "sensitivity", it's a matter of Islam's power of subjugation, and the disgrace this woman has of willfully submitting to the demands of the monster she shamefully represents. Exactly why, if you ask me, all women turning up at this kind of hearing should make it clear that they will not do so - especially if they're relatives of the victims of the murders these filthy monsters committed - and there should even be a female prosecutor and judge assigned, to make clear that respect is a top priority lest the terrorists want to be on the receiving end of extra contempt charges.
In a pandering fashion choice, Washington-based lawyer Cheryl Bormann showed up in the Guantanamo Bay terror courtroom yesterday in a traditional Muslim woman’s head garb.
Bormann, 52, who is representing Yemeni terror suspect Walid bin Attash, appeared before a judge clad in a black hijab, or traditional head covering, and long black robe.
She also suggested other women in the courtroom should follow her fashion example, so bin Attash and the other male defendants can look at them without “fear of committing a sin under their faith.”
Bin Attash allegedly ran an al-Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan and engineered the 2000 bombing of USS Cole.
Bormann, who once ran the Illinois agency that represented death-penalty defendants — said her client’s treatment at Gitmo has interfered with his ability to participate in the proceedings.
“These men have been mistreated,” she charged.
A woman who identified herself as Bormann’s former sister-in-law told The Post yesterday that, to her knowledge, the defense lawyer is not Muslim but is simply trying to be sensitive to her client’s needs.
Let's be perfectly clear: murderers do not deserve these kind of appeasements, which are only efforts to humiliate the very societies they seek to annihilate, and any sane lawyer who knows better than Bormann shouldn't even take the assignment to begin with.
