Lawyers for the so-called[FIFY..ed]"Lady Al Qaeda" are up in arms because spectators at her trial have to show identification and sign in.

The extra security check comes on top of a metal detector placed outside the doorway of the Manhattan courtroom where Aafia Siddiqui is on trial for attempted murder.

Her defense team said Thursday the precautions are depriving her of a fair trial.

"The suggestion is that the gallery may be a threat," said Charles Swift.

Grilling spectators, often in front of jurors waiting to get into the courtroom, "is highly prejudicial," Swift told Federal Judge Richard Berman.

Suck it up aresholes, would be threats from supporters of Siddiqui are real.
