Terror Suspect Puts Court to the Test In a virulent, 50-minute speech in open court, Moussaoui -- the man government prosecutors say was meant to be the 20th hijacker on Sept. 11 -- fired his court-appointed defense team, accusing them of working with the U.S. government to secure his execution. He also informed U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema that he plans to mount his own defense. Funny.

I actually say good for him! If he's going to go down anyway (and I think he will) then he might as well do it himself instead of sitting there quietly and relying on some lawyers who he thinks are crooked.
