This entire case is an exercise in the farcical.
First, the prosecutors bungle the MOST IMPORTANT case related to 9/11 (because it’s the ONLY case about the whole damn thing) by tainting witnesses and generally acting like incompetents.
But if that wasn’t enough, then this nutcase of a defendant gets on the stand and says he actually was SUPPOSED to have a role in 9/11 (which is almost guaranteed bullshit) and that he wishes 9/11 happened every day. Obviously the man wants to die. The question is, will the jury let him?
I don’t see how they objectively can allow the death sentence, seeing how fully the prosecution bungled the case. But you never know, people are not rational, and 9/11 is a huge open wound on the psyche of the country. I wouldn’t be surprised if they fry him just out of spite.
Of course, the saddest thing about this whole issue is that we are spending millions on this one case while the true person responsible (bin Laden) is on a camping trip somewhere and we don’t seem to care too much about getting him.
Apparently, we care a lot more about lying to the American people so we can invade Iraq.
Sad. Very sad.
