Lawyer Who Blew Moussaoui Case on $120,000/Year Vacation

Even though it’s really all the State’s fault that they did not go to the FISA court and get permission to search Zacharias Moussaoui’s computer until after the 9/11 attacks, it is true that he was in custody, had knowlege of at least some of the hijackers, and failed to give warning. For this the man should hang, but some stupid lawyer for the TSA had to screw all that up by sending detailed notes on how to testify to all the government witnesses in the sentencing.

She is now getting a paid vacation, at your expense, at the rate of $120,000 a year.

Don’t worry, thanks to the wonderful power of the Commander in Chief to “determine” in a “finding” that someone is an enemy combatant outside the protection of the law, Moussaoui can still be kidnapped by the military and executed in a secret ghost prison in the former Soviet Union.
