Moussaoui Aimed to Hit White House

According to a federal prosecutor, "the evidence is clear" that Moussaoui had accomplices in a plan to fly a fifth attack plane, although he did not make clear whether the alleged operation was planned on Sept. 11. Moussaoui is serving as his own lawyer, and his "alleged preparation for terrorist acts" could make this a death penalty case.

There is some question as to whether the case can continue in criminal court, given its relevance to national security. Story in the Washington Post.
