Moussaoui trial put off til the sweet by and by...
A federal judge delayed until January the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person charged in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema postponed the trial, which had been scheduled for Sept. 30, until Jan. 6. She said that given the "volume and the complexity of evidence" she wanted to make sure Moussaoui, who is representing himself in court, had enough time to prepare his case. Moussaoui had requested a delay to "an undetermined date," while his standby attorneys wanted a 60-day postponement. The Justice Department had told the court that "no more delay, particularly on the eve of trial, should be permitted."
Reminds me of the old Three Stooges routine, where they were in jug and about to face the firing squad:
"Whaddya want for yer last meal?"
"Strawberries ain't in season!"
"We'll wait!"

"Although the public's right to a speedy trial is a legitimate concern, this court's paramount concern is ensuring that the defendant receive a fair trial," Brinkema ruled Friday.
I guess as long as he's in jug he's not killing anybody. But there are probably some Islamists out there thinking "prisoner exchange." All they have to do is grab some prisoners...
