I dunno. Try 'em, hang 'em -- and do it with a burqa on! That will confound the mullahs. Seriously.. I don't care if the defence lawyer wears it. No-one else in court has any obligation to. And showing a few touches of respect & justice, before you hang the criminals up, lets people know not to mess with ya.

Tolerance. The trial for suspected 9/11 defendants, including Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, is underway in a military tribunal in Guantanamo Bay this week and the lawyer for the defendants is wearing a full burqa in court in order to "respect" the religious beliefs of her clients.

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.
