Obama coddles Islamic jihadists. It's a travesty.
Guantanamo judge rules 9/11 savage KSM can don camouflage at trial. This jihadi savage slaughtered 3,000 Americans, and he is wearing US army fatigues? They should put this pig in a diaper. This is unbelievable.
Evil 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed will be allowed to dress up like a soldier for his military trial next year — and could even shame the proceedings by wearing an American uniform.
At a pretrial hearing yesterday at Guantanamo Bay, a military judge cleared the way for the admitted mass murderer to wear camouflage clothing at his trial for the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people on American soil.
Although the ruling would forbid the fiendish al Qaeda leader from wearing any present-day US uniform, the judge’s decision doesn’t close the door on Mohammed sticking his arms through the sleeves of an American uniform no longer in use.
Accused 9/11 plotter lectures military tribunalAssociated Press GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) -- The self-styled terrorist mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks lectured a military court on government hypocrisy Wednesday and wore a previously banned camouflage vest to his pretrial hearing before being rebuked by the judge for his comments.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was in court as part of a weeklong hearing focusing largely on the secrecy rules that will govern legal proceedings against him at the U.S. base in Cuba.
Mohammed was allowed to wear a hunting-style camouflage vest with his white tunic and turban over the objections of prosecutors, who feared it might disrupt the proceedings.
... his five-minute speech denouncing the government's arguments about the need to protect national security transfixed the court and drew a reprimand from the judge.[...]Mohammed told the judge, Army Col. James Pohl, that "the government uses national security as it chooses," urging him to keep that in mind as he considers requests from defense lawyers and the American Civil Liberties Union to scale back the rules for evidence and testimony.
"Many can kill people under the name of national security, and to torture people under the name of national security," the Arabic-speaking Mohammed said through a translator. "And detain their underage children under the name of national security."
In an apparent reference to Osama bin Laden, Mohammed noted that "the president can take someone and throw them into the sea in the name of national security."
He also made an oblique reference to Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-Yemeni militant killed in a September 2007 U.S. drone strike, and told the judge not to be affected by the "crocodile tears" of prosecutors when they refer to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the 2001 attacks.
"When the government feels sad for the killing of 3,000 on Sept. 11, we also should feel sorry that the U.S. government ... has killed thousands of people," Mohammed said, before correcting himself to say millions of people.
"Your blood is not made of gold and ours is made of water. We are all human beings," he said.
No, you are not a human being, you are a savage.
[....] Mohammed and his four co-defendants face charges that include terrorism, conspiracy and 2,976 counts of murder, one count for each known victim of the attacks at the time the charges were filed. They could get the death penalty if convicted.
The trial is likely at least a year away.
