Sharia Law Comes to the U.S.A.

Courtesy of... no, really, you'll never guess:
To defend itself against a lawsuit by the widows of three American soldiers who died on one of its planes in Afghanistan, a sister company of the private military firm Blackwater has asked a federal court to decide the case using the Islamic law known as Shari’a.


If the judge agrees, it would essentially end the lawsuit over a botched flight supporting the U.S. military. Shari’a law does not hold a company responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their work.
Can we expect panic from the wingers over this latest incursion of teh Evul Islamofascisti Conspiracy? Or is it all OK because, you know, at least those Blackwater guys don't wear checked scarves?
