it's pretty clear that many in the Islamic world are totally disconnected from reality and will believe whatever the "imams" tell them. I don't think what we do or say is going to affect them much. Execute him sooner rather than later.
It's been established that he was doing flight training. Enough for me, as long as they can make a case. Clearly he was here to perform a terrorist act. Why is the burden on us to show what it was when he confessed? He is represented by counsel.
Richard "Shoe Bomber" Reid could use a jolt from Old Sparky as well. When's he due?
BTW, what are these "inflammatory thread titles taunting the left"? Far outwieghed by trolls from the left methinks. DK alone posts more deliberately provacative threads than anyone on the right, in the middle or orbiting in space.
Since I saw so many inflammatory thread titles taunting the left, I felt the urge to add to the stack
Now that I have your attention though... I wanted to talk about the sensational and suicidal testimony that Z Moussaoui made today. The guy obviously wishes to be executed, and who am I to disagree BUT in my opinion, whether he really had a major part in 9/11 or not needs to be answered. Moussaoui is suddenly making these grandiose claims that he and shoe bomber Richard Reed were slated to be on a 5th plane targeting the White House. I think it important to know whether the guy can fly a paper airplane let alone the jet airliner he claims to know how to fly.
The reason why I think it important to verify his claims is because we shouldn't make this guy into a martyr. Plain and simple, this guy should be discredited as much as possible to hamstring his value as a propaganda tool to the rest of the world. If he is to be executed he should not go to his death with the satisfaction that he may have aided his cause in any way.
I guess what I'm saying is that the Federal government should not be happy with a death verdict if such a finding could be used as a propaganda victory. What do y'all think?
