Because the burqa is huge, dark, face-concealing and all-enveloping… And because women are not supposed to be approached by men in a strict Islamic society… Male terrorists have often dressed in burqas and pretended to be women in order to escape detection.
A few sample cases:
It’s getting so widespread, that the UN worries transgenders will have problems!!!
Suicide bomber disguised as veiled woman kills 19 at medical graduation ceremony – way to go killing Muslim doctors, a$$hole.
Two burqa-clad suicide bombers try to blow up a police station, but get shot up before they can detonate.
A German al Qaeda operative caught dallying about in a burqa.
But this one via The Jawa Report really takes the cake… THE WEDDING CAKE!!!
Lolz! Be sure to read the comments at the Jawa link, such as these fine examples below:

Two in burqas kill 32 poor people
Soldiers manning a checkpoint near Baghdad stopped a wedding convoy to find that the purported bride and groom were wanted terror suspects.
The soldiers became suspicious of the convoy because its members — save the “bride” — were all male and because one of the cars in the convoy did not heed orders to stop.
The people in the car seemed nervous and the groom refused to lift his bride’s veil when soldiers asked him to.
Soldiers ordered everyone out of the car.
Upon inspecting the convoy, soldiers found a stubbly-faced man, Haider al-Bahadli, decked out in a white bride’s dress and veil.
Bahadli was wanted on terror-related charges, as was his groom, Abbas al-Dobbi.
Two other terror-related suspects were detained as well.
Anyway, dressing up in drag doesn’t guarantee a successful suicide-bombing/cowardly escape from a real battle (since for self-proclaimed ‘brave warriors unafraid of death’, jihadis seem strangely averse to head-on confrontations).
Women can search women, as long as they are empowered in a way strict Islamic societies do not empower them.
Excerpted from The Jawa Report:
Adhamiyah Women Join Volunteer Guard Force
BAGHDAD — In a well-lit meeting room in a government building in the Iraqi capital, 20 Iraqi women were sitting in a circle, intently watching the demonstration in the center of the room.
These women were learning how to lock and load an AK-47.
As members of the first class of female security volunteers in Adhamiyah, all 51 women in the class were groundbreakers. The women will join hundreds of male residents that are already helping secure Adhamiyah by guarding important public sites like schools, hospitals, and government buildings.
The necessity to have female security guards became clear earlier this month when a female suicide bomber was able to enter a public building without being searched in nearby Fadhil and blew her explosive vest up, killing several people.
In Iraq, cultural sensitivities preclude men from searching women. But there is nothing stopping a woman from searching another woman.
Proper search procedures are one such skill area. On the second day of training, Cook demonstrated search techniques for the group. The class began with nervous titters among the Adhamiyah women, who blushed and looked away when Cook showed how to search sensitive areas.
But when Cook showed them how easy it is to hide a weapon if a thorough search isn’t conducted, the women stopped being timid and started really shaking each other down during role-playing exercises.
Then again… It could just be that Islamo-fascists extremists dress that way because, deep down inside, they are actually teh uber ghey:

O the joy of sodomy!
So now be sodomites, you Arabs.
Turn not away from it–
therein is wondrous pleasure.
Take some coy lad with kiss-curls
twisting on his temple
and ride as he stands like some gazelle
standing to her mate.
A lad whom all can see girt with sword
and belt not like your whore who has
to go veiled.
Make for smooth-faced boys and do your
very best to mount them, for women are
the mounts of the devils
