Moussaoui Case Tainted

Here is a clear example of why treating terrorism as a crime instead of an act of war puts us all in danger.

ALEXANDRIA, Virginia

In a sharp blow to the U.S. government's only case connected to the September 11 hijackings, a federal judge on Tuesday said sentencing for Zacarias Moussaoui could go ahead but without critical aviation-related testimony and evidence.

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema had considered throwing out the death penalty case after discovering that a government lawyer had improperly shared information with witnesses.

A man associated with al-Qaeda and part of the 9/11 plot is treated like a criminal, with all the rights of say, a burglar, or a drug dealer. But lets face facts, Moussaoui and his ilk want to kill as many Americans as possible. The American justice system is not designed to deal with the horrific dealings of the modern terrorist. Al-Qaeda wants to destroy the United States. Members of al-Qaeda need to be treated as prisoners of war, threats to National Security, not just suspects.

What the hell is wrong with the government attorneys? Making such a mistake is inexcusable!

Personally, I want this fellow executed. Why should taxpayers' dollars to to support him for a life-in-prison term (or even less)?

Why hasn't he been considered an "enemy combatant"? Isn't that what the detainees down in Cuba considered to be? I understand he was captured on United States soil but he shouldn't get any more rights or privileges than those caught fighting against the United States in Afghanistan or Iraq.

America needs to understand that we are at war. Enemy soldiers need to defeated: killed or captured. They are not misguided youths and it is not our fault.

So the only person to be tried for killing 3000 Americans won't get the death penalty? I'm glad to see that my tax dollars will help support this man for the next 30 years.

To make matters worse, he'll be able to spread his faith in prison.
