Lawyer: 9/11 Defendants Will Tell Jury 'Why They Did It'

Thanks, Barack Barry Soetoro Hussein Obama for providing a global stage for the Muslims responsible for the mass murders on 9/11. Here they go already, not even in the courtroom and they are crowing to the world that they will use the American justice system to justify their reasons for the mass murders on 9/11.  There can be no legal justification for bringing these mass murderers onto American soil as they were in the process of being tried before a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay.  That is, until you stopped the tribunals.

So Mr. President, your plan to provide a venue for the airing of the justification for Islamic mass murder of non-Muslims goes ahead faster than you had dared hope.  Your fellow travelers in Islam are already using the justice system to further the cause of Global Jihad.


Lawyer: 9/11 Defendants Will Tell Jury 'Why They Did It'

NEW YORK  —  The five men facing trial in the Sept. 11 attacks will plead not guilty so that they can air their criticisms of U.S. foreign policy, the lawyer for one of the defendants said Sunday.

Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer for accused terrorist Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, said the men would not deny their role in the 2001 attacks but "would explain what happened and why they did it."

The U.S. Justice Department announced earlier this month that Ali and four other men accused of murdering nearly 3,000 people in the nation's deadliest terrorist attack will face a civilian federal trial just blocks from the World Trade Center site.

Ali, also known as Ammar al-Baluchi, is a nephew of professed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
Mohammed, Ali and the others will explain "their assessment of American foreign policy," Fenstermaker said.
"Their assessment is negative," he said.

Fenstermaker met with Ali last week at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. He has not spoken with the others but said the men have discussed the trial among themselves.

Fenstermaker was first quoted in The New York Times in Sunday's editions.
Critics of Attorney General Eric Holder's decision to try the men in a New York City civilian courthourse have warned that the trial would provide the defendants with a propaganda platform.

Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the Department of Justice, said Sunday that while the men may attempt to use the trial to express their views, "we have full confidence in the ability of the courts and in particular the federal judge who may preside over the trial to ensure that the proceeding is conducted appropriately and with minimal disrupton, as federal courts have done in the past."
