The Hague Would Have Been A Fair Venue

I don't know if anybody has really noticed, but this guy is certifiably nuts.
Moussaoui Lambastes His Lawyers on the Stand: "Testifying shortly after his defense team began presenting its case for sparing his life, Moussaoui also said he had no regrets about the attacks and the grief they caused the victims' families. When asked directly if he had any regrets, he replied: 'None whatsoever.'

Asked why, he said, 'The question is why not? As a person, I find it disgusting that some people will come here to share their grief. I find that disgusting.'

He said another reason he has no regret is that 'we did it for this reason: We wanted to inflict pain on your country. . . . I wish there would be more pain because next week and the week after, the children of Palestine will have more pain. . . . I want you to share the pain.'
I could have told you that.
Asked why he hates America, Moussaoui paused, then said his answer would be long. He went on to describe his resentment of U.S. support for Israel. 'For me, the Jewish state of Palestine is a missing star on the flag of America," he said. "You are the head of the snake for me. If I want to destroy the Jewish state of Palestine, I have to destroy you."

In response to another question, Moussaoui expressed a desire to wipe out American Jews, saying he views them differently than the rest of the U.S. population.

"For the American Jew, we will exterminate them," he said. "For Christians, we have a way to acclimate them if they don't fight us."

Moussaoui also denounced his court-appointed defense lawyers in front of the federal jury, accusing them of conspiring with the prosecution to kill him. He said his attorneys had failed to present two "rational arguments" for sentencing him to prison instead of execution: that life behind bars was "a greater punishment than death," which could mean "martyrdom," and that keeping him alive could "save American lives" if, for example, U.S. authorities needed to use him as a "bargaining chip" for the release of American hostages."
Osama is where again? Let's kill the little henchman because the big guy is too "far" away and just not all that important in the grand scheme of things.

Or in other words: One in the hand is worth two in the bush.
