U.S. Lawyer puts Islamic principles before legal ones

From SDAMAT’s YT Page:

This legal eagle has made herself over into the draped defender.

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 (left).

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 (right, without the scarf), 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.

  1. She should stroll into the courtroom stark naked, a gun in her hand and a placard around her neck saying ‘Rape me if you dare!’

  2. That is certainly a possibility and I would lean 50/50 on that. The other option is, if you are a lawyer, and have to defend those guys, you are not going to have much of a chance of getting them anything but the harshest possible sentence unless you pull a rabbit out of a hat.

    That could be what she is doing. Cause she cannot possibly win on the actual merits of the case. “If the glove don’t fit, you must acquit” sort of thing. Of course here she didn’t get to do jury selection as did the O.J. Lawyer, so she is going with Marxist dogma and white guilt. Might even work.

  3. She can request that at least one member of the board be replaced, at least I think she can, it has been a long time since I did any studying of court martials.

    If the facts are against you argue law, if the law is against you argue facts, if both are against you argue emotion. Looks like emotion is all she has, however the main reason I said she is a leftist is that the leftwing law groups volunteer to represent the Islamic terrorists.
