The Brandeis Terrorist Goes Down

Aafia Siddiqui, the long-accused al-Qaeda operative who after being captured was accused of trying to kill American officers in Afghanistan, has been convicted in a New York court.

Two funny things about this story: one, after all the KSM fake outrage, this terrorist was tried in a New York court without any controversy or hubbub whatsoever. And two, Siddiqui is an alum of... Brandeis, where she got a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Here's the kicker:

As the jurors began leaving the courtroom, Ms. Siddiqui, her face mostly covered in a cream-colored scarf, turned in her chair to face them. Holding her right index finger in the air, she said: “This is a verdict coming from Israel and not from America. That’s where the anger belongs.”

Though the outburst prompted marshals to remove Ms. Siddiqui, 37, from the courtroom

Yes, of all the places to go to grad school, this woman chose the Non-Sectarian Jewish-Sponsored University.
