Comments on: Moussaoui Trial Problems http://www.poliblogger.com/?p=9566 A rough draft of my thoughts...

One bad guy in custody and the government has to run with it. At least he is acting the part out well, shouting anti-American slogans, cursing, looking vile and loathsome. The commedy of the whole thing is the legal theory. If only he had told the truth while in custody, and what criminal is ever expected to tell the truth during questioning, then the government would have shed all it's layers of incompetence and miraculouisly prevented 9/11. That's the myth the government wishes to preserve, the myth of competence. But for just one more little clue they would have busted the whole thing wide open. This guy is guilty in a moral sense, but legally he's getting railroaded by a government to cover up prior mistakes. I just hope the government doesn't bungle this trial and somehow let him out. They almost did it with the witness tampering fiasco a few weeks ago, so there's still time to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

That’s the myth the government wishes to preserve, the myth of competence. But for just one more little clue they would have busted the whole thing wide open.
