More Brutal Onslaught of the Black Robed Justices

Prosecutors seeking the death penalty against confessed terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui told a federal judge that it would be a waste of time to continue the trial after key government witnesses were barred from testifying.

The government is considering an appeal of U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema's decision Tuesday that guts roughly half of the federal case against Moussaoui.

For those of you who have been following this case, it only gets sellier and silleir, and now, gosh...

I still want to rant at the government prosecutors who are trying to get the death penalty based upon the prosecution's hatred of the 5th Ammendment, and their complete disgust that they got stuck running this case without being alllowed to render the perp to a country where they could have been allowed to get all of the information that they would have needed to stop 9/11. Gosh, and now they find out they can not simply offer scripts to their witnesses to follow so that they can say on message.

Ah yes.... back in the bad old days, taking the 5th ammendment to protect one's self from, well, confessing to a crime, was something that only enron types did. Now it seems that it is also to be extended to persons who are not actually involved in the plot or conspiracy... I mean what next? The Government will be prevented from extracting confessions from persons for which there was no actual crime committed? Where Will It All END if we allow blackrobed judical tyrannts impose their failed pre-911 liberalism on the judicial system!!!
