Lady Al Qaeda Aafia Siddiqui Removed From Courtroom

A jury was chosen Thursday in the “Lady Al Qaeda” trial, but not before the defendant interrupted the process with more outbursts and was tossed from the courtroom.

A day after she demanded Jews be excluded from the jury, Aafia Siddiqui went to deliver more rants about Jews and the 9/11 terror attacks.

“I have nothing to do with 9/11,” she said when a potential juror who cited her personal experience on Sept. 11 was dismissed.

Siddiqui is on trial in Manhattan federal court for attempted murder.

She was arrested by Afghan police after being caught in July 2008 with two pounds of sodium cyanide, a list of New York targets, and instructions for chemical and biological weapons, prosecutors say.

When an American team tried to question her, she allegedly grabbed an unsecured M-4 rifle and opened fire.

Siddiqui has repeatedly said she is boycotting her own trial and has attempted to make her case directly to prospective jurors and the judge.
