Is This The Way To Fight "The War on Terror"?
Here is a good summary of the case of Mounir el Motassadeq, a 30-year-old Moroccan charged in Germany with aiding the three Hamburg-based suicide hijackers who are alleged to have been part of the 9/11 team. The case against him could be strong,- if it was not for the US failure to cooperate and provide the necessary evidence due to security considerations. He was once acquitted and is now being retried. This time around the US is being a bit more helpful, but likely not to the extent sufficient to secure a conviction.
