The sister of one of the pilots whose plane was hijacked on September 11th said that it is outrageous that the military judge ruled in the terror suspects favor by allowing them to wear camouflage clothing inside the courtroom.
‘This judge has to grow a backbone,’ Debra Burlingame told MailOnline.
The leeway that the judge granted the accused terrorists comes during the second day of the pretrial decisions in the case against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the hijacked plane attacks and his four alleged al Qaeda conspirators.
The request for the different dress code comes as the men want to portray themselves as soldiers during the trial- a move that Ms Burlingame says shows that their intention is to promote their violent cause.
‘They are trying to use their situation to rally jihadists around the world and that puts American troops in danger,’ she said.
‘If these defendants were members of the Klu Klux Klan and they were on trial for killing a black family, for burning their house, would they be allowed to wear their Klan uniforms in court to show their solidarity with their fellow Klan members?
