The feds called Moussaoui “pure evil” said he’s killed before “and would kill again in prison” and called the defense case a bunch of “psycho hogwash.”Moussaoui’s lawyer told jurors that his client is trying to “bait” them into recommending the death penalty and that the government has falsely held out his death as a cure for the pain held by many 9 11 victims. There just wasn’t a whole lot of love in the room.When you match a monumental crime with an historic trial, and when you match both with a small man not worthy of the attention, you get the surrealism qua farce that soaked through the walls here in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia.There was prosecutor David Novak, spitting mad, telling jurors in one breath that those who kill in the name of God (he had, of course, Moussaoui in mind) warrant a special kind of shame while in the next breath urging jurors to recommend a death sentence against the defendant in the name of “righteousness.”And there were defense attorneys, who didn’t have much else to say to jurors, reminding the panel about Moussaoui’s poor childhood, as if his travails as a poor, abused Muslim boy growing up with an awful family would have any particular resonance with a jury of folks who live in the shadow of the Pentagon and who are being required to sign a special certification on the verdict form that confirms they have not condemned Moussaoui on the basis of his race or religion.There were prosecutors, elevating Moussaoui to the status of mass murderer even though he was sitting in a jail cell in Minnesota on 9 11. There were the feds, comparing Moussaoui to Osama bin Laden himself and claiming that both were “loving every minute” of the carnage on 9 11.There was the government attorney, telling jurors that Moussaoui spoke the truth when he incriminated himself but that Moussaoui’s terror boss, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, could not be trusted when he said that Moussaoui was never part of the hijack plot.
Harris predicts GPIN will snowball. More immediately, however, the GPIN team is planning another update. Nike lives by its production calendars, Lawrence says. Changed our whole program, Gase said of Denver loading up at cornerback. Got lucky with Chris Harris. We got (Aqib) Talib and then (Bradley) Roby and all of the sudden we’re playing man to man and that’s it.
That seems really old fashioned and puts a financial burden on me. Otherwise I just ask you to go to the library or something free. We all adults, heck we all over 30. She was mentioned as a potential candidate for president. Now, she’s reportedly about to get involved in some real controversy the College Football Playoff. Many Republican Party primary voters, however, don’t share that enthusiasm for him.
