I know various wingnuts go on about how Muslims or various left-wing freaks are going to bring Sharia law to America and make us into an Islamist theocracy. But I think we may have the first case of a defendant actually asking a US federal judge to apply Sharia law, not American law, to a case.

And the defendant is Blackwater.
