Moussaoui - Guilty
The guilty plea of Zacarias Moussaoui has been accepted; Moussaoui says he was trained to fly a 747 into the White House during a follow-up attack to September 11th; others, of course, contend he was part of the 9/11 game plan. The mind boggles at the consequences had he been successful, regardless of the date. I am reminded of the awful period of time during 9/11 when no one was sure that all the planes were accounted for. 3 1/2 years later, and the man is still going through the legal system. It took only a few seconds to condemn the 3,000 9/11 victims to death, though one suspects they found a much more welcoming reception than the one facing Moussaoui.
