Two Commentaries on the Ongoing Zacarias Moussaoui Trial

Two Nut Jobs and a Boeing 747 - Another Day in the Empire

One of the most obvious lies in the show trial of Zacarias Moussaoui came when a court-appointed physician, Dr. Raymond Patterson, declared Moussaoui was not suffering from mental illness. Patterson made the assertion after Moussaoui said he wanted to fire his lawyers and represent himself. Moussaoui’s lawyers 'became convinced that their client’s mental condition, already precarious, was deteriorating under the stress of solitary confinement, and that he was becoming increasingly paranoid,' writes Seymour Hersh for the New Yorker. In response to Patterson’s assertion that Moussaoui was sane enough to present his own defense, two 'mental-health experts retained by the defense, Dr. Xavier Amador, of Columbia University, and Dr. William Stejskal, of the University of Virginia, argued that Patterson’s conclusions were unfounded and that Moussaoui needed further evaluation.' Judge Brinkema did not agree and ruled from the bench on June 13th, 2002, without hearing testimony, 'that the defendant met the legal standard of competency.'

In fact, Zacarias Moussaoui is a stark raving lunatic, given to paranoid outbursts in the courtroom, and he was deemed sane for the simple reason that the government needs a conviction to prop up its ludicrous whitewash commission fairy tale about 'al-Qaeda' cave dwellers attacking America on September 11, 2001.
But the paramount absurdity is Moussaoui’s claim he plotted to hijack an airplane with Richard Reid (aka Abdul Raheem or Abu Ibrahim), a certifiable mental case and not the sharpest knife in the drawer now serving three life sentences in the ADX Florence, a Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado. Reid of course attempted to blow up his shoes (containing plastic explosive with a triacetone triperoxide detonator) on American Airlines Flight 63 going from Paris’ Charles De Gaulle International Airport to Miami International Airport.
Simply put, both Zacarias Moussaoui and Richard Reid are patsies, two doltish fall guys provided to put a sinister (if pathetic) face on the beast our government and corporate media call 'al-Qaeda.' It was never intended that Moussaoui see the cockpit of a commercial airliner and if indeed 'al-Qaeda' had wanted to blow up American Airlines Flight 63 over the Atlantic Ocean, they would not have selected a bumbling petty criminal such as Richard Reid to accomplish the task.

British shoe bomber 'part of fifth 9/11 plot' - The Guardian

In his testimony yesterday, Moussaoui said he knew in August 2001 that the attacks were imminent, and he had bought a radio so he could hear them unfold. But, while he has admitted membership of al-Qaida and receiving flight training - and told the court yesterday he was acquainted with a dozen of the 19 hijackers - he has always said he was not a part of that particular plot.

One of the major assertions by the mainstream media coverage today was that Moussaoui was 'acquainted with a dozen of the 19 hijackers', this statement does not pass the smell test.

It has been well documented that at least 6 of the hijackers are still alive. Sure, this could just be a case of mistaken identity, or stolen passports, etc. but in conjunction with the following statement from Robert Mueller - Director of the FBI - it becomes more clear that the identities of the hijackers isn't even known by U.S. Intelligence:

The hijackers also left no paper trail. In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper either here in the U.S. or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere that mentioned any aspect of the September 11th plot.

Unfortunately the media doesn't have the ability to clarify with Moussaoui as to which dozen of the hijackers he recognized, not that they would. Given the probabilities, it is at least possible that 12 of the 19 people he claims he recognizes were not part of the 6 that have been proven to be alive, but it isn't a very good probability. It is more likely that Moussaoui is so far off the deep end that he would say whatever he needs to get his trial over with, and be killed, which is almost completely certain.

I would hope that the judge of the trial might delay the inevitable and have Moussaoui provide further details as to which hijackers he claims to be familiar with. If any of those that he claims to recognize are of the 6 which are still alive, then it should be pretty obvious that he is doing whatever it takes so that he might be killed, and be a martyr in his own mind - as scrambled as it may be. It would also keep this trial from continuing the unfounded '19 hijackers' official story.

Did Moussaoui recognize these accused hijackers?
Because they are still alive.

P.S. Thanks to the 9/11 Commission for not even mentioning that the identities of the '19 hijackers' were anything but certain, and for continuing to blame 6 innocent (and still alive) people.

Thanks Carol for the link submission!

Someone asked me

Someone asked me yesterday:

How can you be certain these hijackers are still alive?

How do I?

Wes: How can anyone be


How can anyone be certain they are dead?

The professional: I´ve

The professional:

I´ve never believed in the official story, so how do I even know they actually even existed!

But, that wasnt the point. You can´t just say they are alive in court, you need evidence. Griffin is talking about it? What evidence does he use?

Im only sorting out the evidence I can use. Thats the reason I only like talking about physical evidence, like the twin towers. They can not disagree with this.

Wesley, You can find


You can find references in the link in the article.. here it is:

So Dr. Raymond Patterson is

So Dr. Raymond Patterson is also part of the conspiracy? It's getting to be a long list. Any of the tinfoil hats here prepared to put the definitive list together of the people they KNOW are part of your conspiracy?

Anybody familiar with the

Anybody familiar with the Rothschilds? How many conspirators could they pay off handsomely for a scam?

I get such a kick out of claims that "the payroll is too big" for a 9/11 op and cover-up. Get real.

I think Moussaui has made the classic mistake - taking the word of the intel community. I think he's spewing his story in exchange for what he thinks is participation in a scam, for which he'll be released and rewarded. Little does he know, the execution will proceed as planned. Making him swap stories just adds to the credence of his craziness, and all the last0minute protesting and screaming about how he was framed will be more easily brushed off.

You're about right... He'll probably get invited down to Dick Cheney's ranch for a weekend of fun, maybe a game of "hunt the terrorist" ;)

Any other names aside from me who are part of the conspiracy? Did I plant the bombs on the three buildings you claim we "imploded?"

[b]MSNBC VIDEO: Moussaoui

[b]MSNBC VIDEO: Moussaoui wore 'stun belt' for new testimony[/b]

If you're looking for a reason why Zacarias Moussaoui suddenly testified today to a version of the 9/11 plotline that sounds more like the Official story than even the official Whitewash Commission report, this video may have the answer.

In it, NBC news reporter Pete Williams lets slip that Moussaoui is wearing a "Stun belt" underneath his clothing controlled by US Marshals. MSNBC host Dan Abrams gets some more details on the stun belt.

A taste of the exchange:

WILLIAMS: The old outbursts were gone... He was very docile today... We believe that he's wearing one of those stun belts, and it may be that he was very worried about doing anything that would cause those Marshals to press the button....

ABRAMS: A stun belt? They literally have sOmething around his waist? That they can push a button and?

WILLIAMS: [Pause] Well...

OK so the marshalls are

OK so the marshalls are involved in the conspiracy too? How many of them are there do you think?

Even the CNN folks say that

Even the CNN folks say that Mooseowey is nuts. I myself think he is a perfectly reasonable fellow. I've never owned a tin hat and never poisoned an entire southeast asian country with dioxin nor have I raped little boys as part of an official interagation process.

Spell checking would be a nice upgrade.

Most folks take orders and

Most folks take orders and don't need to be involved in the planning of these little parties.

Most career people instinctively know that touching something like this is like taking a leak on the third rail.

bozo are you in the city?? i like the third rail comment...

"There will be far more

"There will be far more restrictions on Moussaoui when jury selection begins Sept. 30. He will not be able to see much of the evidence against him because of national security concerns. He probably won't be allowed to cross-examine survivors of the Sept. 11 attacks. And he might have to wear a stun belt so court officers can limit his movements."

"Reporters saw a small device attached to a belt beneath Moussaoui's jumpsuit that appeared to be the electric stun belt that U.S. Marshals can use to temporarily disable obstreperous defendants."
