O’Reilly to 9/11 defense lawyer: “You know people hate you, right?”

posted at 10:03 pm on November 23, 2009 by Allahpundit

Via JWF, another cameo from the guy who warned us this morning that the “defendants” will plead not guilty so that they’ll have a full opportunity to screech about America in court. Let’s hope they stick to the playbook and confine their rantings to enhanced interrogation under Bush rather than foreign policy generally (and Afghanistan in particular); to do otherwise would show ingratitude to the nice man in the White House who’s given them such a plum forum.

The most interesting part of this is Fenstermaker’s refusal to call 9/11 a case of murder. He could have conceded that it was while arguing that the defendants weren’t responsible for it; the fact that he doesn’t suggests at least the possibility that the defense will argue insanity or … some form of justifiable homicide. Doubtless The One would love to see them try, as it would make conviction a foregone conclusion — irrespective of how horrific relatives of 9/11 victims might find it. In his rush to procure a “political victory” by having them found guilty in a civilian court, I wonder if he understands the fantastic anger he’s going to unleash by letting these degenerates argue that the victims had it coming. I have only a tangential connection to the attack — my cousin’s husband, whom I used to see once every five years or so, disappeared in the rubble — and I’m already seething at the thought of reading long transcripts about how he deserved it. Free electoral advice to The One: Make sure the trial doesn’t start until you’re a lame duck.

Update: 9/11 families spring into action.

Who was talking earlier about the precedent this will set with regards to prosecutions being able to strip certain rights away from defendants?

Because there’s no way these guys are going to get to use the whole range of legal options normally afforded to defense teams.

The administration’s position here in indefensible, and I have yet to here a coherent explanation out of anyone’s mouth.

BadgerHawk on November 23, 2009 at 10:10 PM

This may be unfair, but the interview with O’Reilly is a stark reminder of why a great many people think lawyers are the scum of the earth.

Marcus on November 23, 2009 at 10:13 PM

The weak argument that the media has put forth is that in federal court there will be no cameras or taping. Just wait until the interviews with their lawyers and supporters on the steps of the courthouse.
This guy surely is not representative of their legal counsel. If so, adequate counsel questions?

“Fenstermaker” is literally “Windowmaker” in English, but it might be translated as “Glazier.”

I worked with a fellow years ago who discovered that his immigrant great-grandparents changed their name from Zimmerman to Carpenter.

Static21 on November 23, 2009 at 10:38 PM

It’s one thing to stand upon a principle as a defender. It’s completely another to fail to acknowledge, repeatedly, the murder of your own countrymen at the hands of those who you defend. Principle only goes so far. There is a right, and there is a wrong. If Mr. Fenstermaker cannot discern where that line is in his profession, then he is obviously in the wrong profession.

Ummmm…. we dropped an A-bomb on 2 Japanese cities. We killed over 100,000 people, mostly civilian. It’s called war. Of course the AQ goat f*ckers think it is justified. Of course no American thinks it was. We should just put a bullet in their skulls and leave it.

This lawyer is to the core a Truther. I would not be surprised if he was the no plane theory. or the unmanned plane theory that no one died on 9-11 all 2996 are government agents and now in hiding. Many truther theory are going to be explored such as the 19 hijackers are still alive. fire does not melt steal etc. This is not only going to be trial of the Bush years and there treatment it is going to be a trial on the 9-11 commission and their findings.

Would that not be a better defense. We did not do the thing because of Jihad but here is some conspiracy theory to why bush did it and made it look like we did it.

My guess is before the trial gets going Fenstermaker won’t even be coming across as the loopiest lawyer on the defense team, since there’s bound to be at least one who not only attempt to turn the courtroom into a propaganda venue for his clients, but also throws some 9/11 Truther material into the mix, in hopes at least one member of the jury will buy it.

Lawyers defend guilty people all the time. Doctors saved the Fort Hood shooter.

BOR had a few terrible moments here as a journalist and supposedly educated American. Asking a lawyer “Do you think they are murderers?” is dumb. C’mon.

America has several terrible months to hear from killers. Months. The representative’s comment about “..it may not have been three thousand” is just the beginning. Ugly crimes make ugly trials.

Yea, kick the tongue tied mouthpiece, BOR, then continue to show respect for the demented jerk we have in the White House who signed off on this and the Attorney General who couldn’t justify it.

Never suggest that they just had our nation and want to wallow in the expression of vile lies about it? I wonder what a Muslim extremeist President would do to lash out at the War on Terror and still be subtle? This, maybe?

IlikedAUH2O on November 23, 2009 at 11:19 PM

This only shows Obowma wants to hurt America. He is rather in your face about it too. Flipping you off during debates, insulting you, dismissing your concerns and implying you are childish and too stupid to understand; he just doesn’t like you America and he isn’t going to change.

ray on November 23, 2009 at 11:20 PM

Overlay Fenstermaker with Obama and this is who we have in the Whitehouse they are one in the same, underneath they both wear the same snakeskin, the same forked tongue, The same venom, the same motivation, predicated by a deeply misguided bias against their own country.

American propaganda? Not al-Quaeda propaganda. Fenstermaker fully intends to use every means in his masters arsenal to force a parade through the witness stand of CIA operatives who will no longer have cover, every Bush administration official that can be entrapped and poison at all costs the security instruments that have prevented another 911.

Obamaker will be an unmitigated disaster, aided and abetted by a media in love with the identical, warped, by design, visceral hate.

Speakup on November 23, 2009 at 11:20 PM

It wasn’t Fenstermaker that elected to go to civilian court.

borntoraisehogs on November 23, 2009 at 10:27 PM

Unfortunately, this is all too true. Obama (and let it never be forgotten) is ultimately responsible for allowing this civilian trial to proceed. But now that that’s a done deal, nothing is gained by attacking the defense lawyer. He didn’t make the trial happened, Obama did.

I wonder, is there a slightly related precedent when Adams defended the British Boston Massacre soldiers? They were clearly enemies of the American “nation”, the public wanted them hanged, but once it was determined they would get a trial, they deserved a lawyer. My fear, of course, is the precedent this sets for future terrorists.

LastRick on November 23, 2009 at 11:21 PM

O that I could grant it.

So this Air Force Academy dweeb (what is it about military academy lawyers — Lindsay JAG Graham) indicates that his defense will be that the murdered weren’t murdered, which I assume means that the terrorism “was a justifiable act of war”.

He is already calling the case of the United States vs. this subhuman filth “propaganda”. And he has already indicated both that the government will never release the defendants — even if they are found not guilty — and that he will be proud and honored to get them that not guilty verdict, meaning that we will be treated to the spectacle of an Air Force Academy lawyer screaming when this is over that it was a propaganda-laced show trial.

Great. I don’t like his odds.

Jaibones on November 24, 2009 at 12:01 AM

My connection to 9/11 is “tangential” as well, insofar as my Mother the Kindergarten teacher had two 5-year olds whose fathers were murdered that day.

My connection to 9/11 is anything but tangential insofar as I consider that day an act of War against my Country.

The trial of KSM might just be the biggest media circus we’ve seen…ever. In my discerning lifetime, there is nothing else that I can think of that will even compare; that includes O.J., Monica, Katrina and a couple other to-be B-listers.

I’m a lawyer. I find this offensive on the most fundamental levels of anglo-saxon jurisprudence. Read your Blackstone. If there’s an analog to trying a monster like KSM under these circumstances in all of Western legal history…it wasn’t there yesterday.

But, that’s the point for Obama, isn’t it.

I see your point but I respectfully disagree. Obama and this “lawyer” are aloof “cosmopolitans”, “transnationalists”, “globalists”: formally known as communists. They could care less about America or any other “colonially/imperially” contrived borders. And like Islam, Communism does not recognize borders or temporal governments. Playing within the system is all a con; it’s taqiyya.

Through word and deed Obama has revealed he believes his own hype: ‘I am president of the world…a prophet‘ and will adjudicate all grievances (tipping the scale for the oppressed, of course).

His wax wings are melting fast…

Wow. Just wow.

Why don’t leaches bite lawyer? Professional Courtesy.

If a 911 victim’s family member wastes this scumbag, I want to be on the jury to acquit them!

Free electoral advice to The One: Make sure the trial doesn’t start until you’re a lame duck.

So the trials start Monday.

There is something not right about this terrorist ambulance chaser.

He insinuated himself into these cases. You can’t do that as an attorney. The military lawyers do not like him and he was suspended for doing something devious. He claims to or to have represented a number of these creeps. As far as I know, that creates a conflict of interest. And as far as I know, he has no experience in death penalty cases.

All the terrorist blatherings are irrelevant. They are not a defense to the charges and the judge should rule that it doesn’t come it. Lord help us if we get saddled with another pu$$y judge.

Come on, Allahpundit — get to the bottom of this.

Fenstermaker is sorta like Dr. Strangelove. I had the feeling he was restraining himself so he wouldn’t stand up and start shouting “I hate America!!!”

What a ghoul.

ACLU scumbag, if ANYONE thinks the ACLU is pro civil right, you need to back away from the crack pipe!
The ACLU, representing communism since 1919.

The new translation for Fenstermaker is POS bowel movement

Yet another piece of good advice that he’ll prove himself Obamalivious to.

He’s their lawyer so of course he has to say that stuff. And you got to give him credit for even going on O’Reilly’s show.

It is moments like this that I’m thankful there aren’t cameras in Federal Courts.

JohnGalt23 on November 23, 2009 at 10:38 PM

As of now.

I wouldn’t be suprised if they get time served at most. Or the case could be thrown out because they didn’t get a speedy trial or weren’t merandized. I just don’t think that it is possible to try “unlawful combatants” in criminal court. The terrorist won’t be on trial the United States will be on trial. That is Holders plan to blame it all on Bush.
