An interesting article on the handling of the Zacharias Moussaoui case by prosecutors, challenging much of the conventional wisdom on the whistleblower Coleen Rowley, etc.
Moussaoui was certainly connected to Al Qaeda, but his real value to the United States may have been as a witness and not as a stand-in for the dead hijackers, who are beyond punishment. That potential appears to have been traded away for the sake of a high-profile prosecution that is politically and emotionally satisfying.
