The Truther, The Whole Truther, And Nothing But The Truther, So Help Me God

Abdul Benbrika, also known as Abu Bakr, is on trial for his connections to terrorism in Australia and efforts to plot terrorist attacks in Australia.  His scuzzy lawyer is arguing that his client is being unfairly persecuted because of increased scrutiny on Muslims after 9/11, that he is a devout Muslim, but not affiliated with terrorists.  He also told the court not to forget that "America has done many evil things too."  He then stated the following,

...'to say all of this was orchestrated by Osama Bin Laden is a silly thing to do. He's never claimed responsibility for the attacks.'


So basically, as long as the court isn't made up of Australian brand Nutroots, seems like this should be over in pretty short order, given what a stupid tool this lawyer is.  However the mere fact that this lawyer can offer vague Trutherism and vile moral equivocation as a defense and not laughed out of the court is alarming in itself.
