Keystone Kops Alert from AP (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist). Is it possible that the FBI didn’t take this seriously because they knew, after all, that Islam was a religion of peace, and assumed that Moussaoui was just a lone crackpot who couldn’t possibly be mixed up in anything serious?
ALEXANDRIA, Va. An F-B-I agent says confessed al-Qaida terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui (zak-uh-REE’-uhs moo-SOW’-ee) told a former roommate that Muslims had the right to kill non-believers.
Jurors in Moussaoui’s death penalty trial today will see a videotaped deposition from a man who was rooming with Moussaoui in August 2001 when he was arrested.
An F-B-I agent who arrested Moussaoui questioned his roommate. He says the man told him that Moussaoui often talked about holy war and believed Muslims were within their rights to kill infidels. The roommate also said Moussaoui once told him that Osama bin Laden was an important person.
