FBI: Moussaoui not involved
    #2023849 - 10/19/03 11:13 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

He's only been imprisioned now for 2 years.. oops. I bet if that Judge wouldnt have given a big screw you to the Feds and refused to play their games we would have seen Moussaoui's execution on Faux news.
No Bin Laden. No Saddam Hussein. Moussaoui isnt guilty. Just what has our war on terrorism accomplished?

Article
Washington - The US Federal Bureau of Investigation has concluded that Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person charged in America in connection with the September 11 attacks, was not involved in the strikes, Time magazine reported on Sunday.

The news weekly, in its edition appearing on Monday, quotes unidentified sources as saying the FBI has long believed that the Moroccan-born Frenchman "played no part in the 9/11 scheme and was only a minor player in al-Qaeda."

Moussaoui was detained by US authorities on an immigration violation less than a month before the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.

Jailed in Virginia while awaiting trial, he has acknowledged membership in Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda group, but has repeatedly denied the government's charges that he was to have taken part in the September 11 attacks.

Because of the government's refusal to allow Moussaoui to interview captured members of al-Qaeda, a US district judge, Leonie Brinkema, has barred prosecutors from alleging that Moussaoui was linked to the September 11 attacks.

Moussaoui has argued that the captured al-Qaeda members could provide evidence that he was not involved in the September 11 plot.

The government's case against Moussaoui rests largely on proving the connection with the September 11 attacks and prosecutors are appealing the judge's ruling.

slowly, the defense department's tight hold
on the information surrounding these cases
is loosening.

and with every additional discovery of the
details surrounding these cases we find that
the government has very little to charge
people with.

but I guess, closed tribunals without jury are
a good thing in these sorts of cases,

Exactly how else is the legal system supposed to work? What should be done differently? You'd find him not-guilty without the benefit of a trial?

Defendants posing a high enough flight risk are denied bail. I'd say that admitted Al-Queda members are a pretty significant flight risk.

BTW, The ruling barring the FBI's charges are simply because they are unwilling to give Moussaoui access to their sources, to Moussaoui's gain. His right to confront his accuser is being upheld. I don't see how the legal system is not working like intended here, at least not to the detriment of Moussaoui.

You are undermining your own argument with this post.

Time magazine goes into the intricacies of this in considerably greater detail here --

Her comment to me strongly implied that the justice system does not work. Looks like it went like clockwork in this case.

Poor phrasing on my part.

You read my comment and twisted it into what you wanted it to be.

Congrats.

That wasnt my point at all.
