Backhanded Insanity Defense

Let it be resolved that Zacarias Moussaoui is crazier than your average loon. First he undoes everything that his defense team had been working on for years by admitting he knew everything about 9/11 ahead of time, and then he claims that his defense team was out to get him,

Zerkin had asked Moussaoui whether he believes his defense team is in a conspiracy to kill him.

Moussaoui responded that the defense attorneys have engaged in "criminal non-assistance," the AP reported.

From my own point of view, I'd say give the guy life in prison. He wants martyrdom, and he'll use the state to get it. Kind of like the old joke that when the masochist says, "Hurt me," and the sadist says, "No."
