Moussaoui prosecution

(On the way to Macon, GA): The government is moving to dismiss all

charges against Zacarias Moussaoui, who is accused

of being the 20th hijacker on 9/11—the co-conspirator who couldn’t

actually fly a plane because he was already in custody. Prosecutors

now say that they are seeking to dismiss the charges so that they

can appeal Moussaoui’s right to question al Qaeda prisoners. But a

well-informed person told me several weeks ago that he had heard from

a reliable source inside the government that the real 20th hijacker

is being held in Guantanamo. This would mean that Moussauoi is innocent

of the precise charges against him, which may be the real reason why

the charges are being dropped.
