Am I the only one who finds a certain black, farcical irony in that whether Zacharias Moussaoui will face the death penalty or life in prison rests not on his own actions, but on whether the FBI was too incompetent to do anything about it?

Also, nice to know the new government in Afghanistan is holding up those high standards of human rights and freedoms.

More To the point...

As to who sees the irony of proving Moussauoui worthy of death via the FBI's incompetence, i suggest that the judge is quite aware of the point.

The larger issue is that the FBI is trying to divert attention from their own blindness by making a big push for the death penalty on conspiracy grounds. This is an old tactic, you could ask Angela Davis. The very conspiracy laws used in this case were rammed through by during the Nixon Administration and were used against the Chicago Seven, amoung others.

The deal is that conspiracy to commit a misdemenor is a felony, and is a direct outgrowth of the repressive Drug Laws, which attract very little attention these days.

But you can lose your house and property for misdemenor possession, if they decide to push the case. It's the Zero Tolerance Reagan laws that led to the confistication of hundreds of pleasure boats in Florida for pot possession.

They always try this stuff, and it always backfires, and they never learn.

What they ought to do, is to give Moussaoui ten years, and put him in General Population. He would last about as long as Jeffery Dhalmer or Father James Geigin (and if i spelled those bastard's names wrong, stet)

But for God's sake, don't send him back to us after five years! And don't kill him either because we have in our suburbs thousands and thousands of little Moussaoui who hail Ben Laden heartily, are now putting our schools and Faculties on fire and don't need to have a new martyr to worship.

What bothers me really is that after 5 years of enquiry, you only have brought this nutcase before the court. After the Madrid bombings the Spanish Services spent not much more than a few weeks to solve the problem and arrest the suspects. There should be a stronger word than incompetence to describe such a failure.

Me brought him?.. Not at bloody fucking all did i bring him. The people who stole the 2000 electon from my president took five years to bring him to justice. All they are good at is stealing elections. They are like the car-chasing dog. Once they actually catch one, they have no idea what to do with it.
If it was up to me, i would have shot Moussaoui out of hand and worried about the paperwork later.

The same with all this torture crap. The perverts in the white house enjoy this stuff, and i will bet that they get together and watch the videos of torture. Real soldiers would have shot a few people and let the rest go. All the Neo-cons are doing is sowing the wind.. And people like me will have to reap the whirlwind.

All right, guys. If you;re gonna fight, you can take it outside.
