- NBC news reporter Pete Williams speculates
that the feds have rigged a defiant Zacarias Moussaoui with a stun belt,
an "electro-shock" device, apparently part of a growing "shock
technology" arsenal used by torturers in South Africa, China, and
Lebanon. "Amnesty International is extremely concerned about the introduction
by the prison authorities in the United States of America of a remote controlled
electro-shock stun belt for use on prisoners in chain gangs, judicial hearings
and transportation," the human rights organization declared in 1996.
"Officers can use it to psychologically threaten a prisoner, and it
appears designed to humiliate and degrade a prisoner Data from other electro-shock
weapons indicate that the high pulse 50,000 volt shocks lasting eight seconds
at a time could result in longer term physical and mental injuries."
- Is it possible Moussaoui is now admitting
he was involved in a plot to crash an airliner into the White House with
the shoe bomber mental case Richard Reid in a Pavlovian response to 50,000
volts of electricity? If the feds are using electro-shock against the alleged
wanna-be "al-Qaeda" operative, is it possible they are also drugging
him? Aicha el-Wafi, Moussaoui's mother, believes her son "must have
been drugged" when she saw him in court, according to Yahoo News.
"That is not Zachary," she declared.
- It should be remembered that Moussaoui
previously denied any involvement in the nine eleven attacks and his sudden
if not electrifying (pun intended) eleventh hour conversion during the
penalty phase of his trial is highly suspicious. Moreover, according to
nine eleven "mastermind" Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (supposedly in
custody), Moussaoui was to take part in a second wave of attacks and was
not part of the September 11, 2001, attack. Of course, this contradiction
is not worth consideration, either by the jury or the corporate news media.
It appears the patsy Zacarias Moussaoui is indeed a dead man walking-with
a little help from a 50,000 volt shock belt.
- As an example of Moussaoui's precarious
mental state, Daniel McGrory, billed as a Times Online "al-Qaeda expert,"
cites several examples of his unusual behavior. "Asked why he signed
a guilty plea as 'the twentieth hijacker', Moussaoui smirked and said:
'Because everybody used to refer to me as the 20th hijacker and it was
a bit of fun,'" McGrory writes. "Prosecutors have no interest
in demolishing Moussaoui's extraordinary confession as the self- proclaimed
al-Qaeda terrorist seems to have done their job for them. It does not appear
to matter to them that Moussaoui's testimony contradicts their own evidence."
- It appears Moussaoui made things up as
he went along. "Defense lawyers argue he has repeatedly changed his
story about his supposed role in a deliberate attempt to confuse US authorities.
First he claimed he was to be used in a plot to free a blind Egyptian cleric,
Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, jailed in the US in 1996 for an earlier attempt
to blow up the World Trade Centre. Moussaoui told how he was to pilot a
plane carrying the freed sheikh to Afghanistan. Then he changed his mind
and said that he was to take part in a second wave of aerial attacks in
the US. He did not give a date, but claimed he was to crash his aircraft
into the White House."
- Moreover, Moussaoui's claim he plotted
with the demented shoe bomber Richard Reid is at odds with the facts. "The
question to be asked about his latest confession is, why would he implicate
Richard Reid, his friend from their days at Finsbury Park mosque? Both
men were at training camps in Afghanistan at the same time but, as evidence
has shown, Reid, and another young Briton, Saajid Badat, were being groomed
for an entirely different role. Investigators know that Reid's path never
crossed that of the 9/11 cell. Before he was ordered to carry a bomb onto
a plane, Reid had other uses for al-Qaeda. Using his British passport,
he was sent on reconnaissance missions across Europe and the Middle East
at the time the 9/11 hijackers were finalizing their plans. There is no
mention of anything remotely connected to 9/11."
- Moussaoui is a textbook example of a
patsy. "The patsies ultimately have three vital functions," explains
Webster Griffin Tarpley. "The first is that they have to be noticed.
They must attract lots and lots of attention. They may issue raving statements
on videotape, or doubles can be used to issue these statements for them
if they are not up to it. They need to get in to fights with passersby,
as Mohammed Atta is said to have done concerning a parking space at the
airport in Maine early in the morning on September 11."
- "Those who remember Moussaoui from
his loudmouth displays at London mosques, and who trained with him in Afghanistan,
describe him as a man who enjoyed exaggerating his own importance,"
McGrory continues. "He claimed to be a particular favorite of Osama
bin Laden, which none of the al-Qaeda captives verify. He liked the idea
that London had provided al-Qaeda with a small army of would-be suicide
bombers, and that he would be the first to die. He continually boasted
about wanting to be a martyr for al-Qaeda. After his testimony yesterday
he may yet get his wish."
