"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person in the United States charged in connection with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, has told the government he plans to plead guilty, The Washington Post reported in its Tuesday editions.
It looks like the families of September 11th can sleep a little easier now. After defending himself with the aid (and sometimes refusal) of lawyers Moussaoui finally decides that he is guilty. The decision is pending as a judge has to decide if Moussaoui is "mentally competent" to understand whether or not he is guilty.
Moussaoui plead guilty after first being charged but took back his "plea" within a week firing off the judicial circus of whether or not he had the mental ability to represent himself. But here may lie the reason for him giving up:
In March the Supreme Court agreed with a lower appeals court that Moussaoui could not have access to three Al Qaeda witnesses and that the government could seek the death penalty.
It seems that Moussaoui ran out of options and has finally decided to accept fate and join his fellow brother's in Paradise (or if you are of the other faiths his fate in the "hot spot"). Regardless of whether or not the judge accepts his plea Moussaoui will be missed by few people on the American continent and perhaps by Al Qaeda as well (since he did not fulfill his mission).
