'20th hijacker' taunts US attorney general with quiz


Julian Borger in Washington

Saturday May 3, 2003

The Guardian


In a gambit surely unprecedented in US legal history, Zacarias Moussaoui, awaiting trial for conspiracy in the September 11 attacks, has set the US attorney general a multiple choice quiz, offering a seat at his execution as a mock reward for getting the right answer.


The suspected apprentice hijacker set the test in one of a string of bizarre scrawled notes to the judge overseeing his pre-trial proceedings in Virginia. Seventeen of the letters were released yesterday.


Under the heading "September 11 Lottery Case", the attorney general, John Ashcroft, is asked to tick a box alongside one of four options describing his theory about Mr Moussaoui's role:


· 20th hijacker


· 5th plane missing in action


· I, Ashcroft, don't know


· Let's kill him anyway


Below, the defendant writes: "1st prize: 1st Class seat at Zacarias Moussaoui execution" but then adds: "Only JOKING, it is not going to happen".


The legal point behind the quiz is an apparent change in the prosecution theory about his role in the September 11 plot.


Mr Moussaoui was detained less than a month before the attacks, when he was taking flying lessons and his instructors suspected his motives.


After September 11, he was charged as a conspirator and justice department officials referred to him as the "20th hijacker".


They speculated that five conspirators were on each of the hijacked planes, except United Airlines flight 93, on which there were only four. They were overcome by a passenger revolt that brought the plane down in Pennsylvania.


The original theory was that Mr Moussaoui would have been on that flight had he not been arrested.


However in a recent court order, the government adjusted its account, suggesting he would have piloted a fifth plane.


The justice department said yesterday that Mr Ashcroft was unlikely to fill in his questionnaire.


Mr Moussaoui, a French citizen who studied in London, has been assigned a defence lawyer despite wanting to conduct his own case.


In his notes to the court, Mr Moussaoui accuses his lawyer, Frank Dunham, who he sometimes calls "Fat Megalo" (possibly short for megalomaniac) of being in league with Mr Ashcroft (generally referred to as "slave of Satan") to have him executed.


His rambling notes refer to the USA as the United Sodom of America, and the judge, Leonie Brinkema as "Death Judge" or "Grand Nanny".


In one, he challenges President Bush to "stop playing chicken and ... come out and fight hand-to-hand combat with knife if he want to kill me."

a few friends of mine just got out of the klink for protesting at INS. i've been out of the country for a while- but let me say that it was immediately apparent upon my return that i had come back to a cold and crazy police state. not that i wasn't aware of this before i left, but the feeling was palpable when i reentered. like being dropped into ice water.

this guy is either a fucking idiot or a geniuos or a lil of both. He has hd the court in fits. He refused all his represntation, saying he wanted to defend imself, but in court he diplays a lack of credibale knowledge of court preceedings. His jude hhas no idea what todo. Its to the point or was to the point where three seperate sets of councel were in the wings studying the facts just incase he broke or the court ruled him unfit to provide legal counsel for himself.



this would almost be better than seeing clinton testify ( in person of course).
