  •  I have an awful suspicion (none)
    that they didn't have a f--king clue what they were going to charge him with and then came up with this diabolical charge of planning to assassinate Bush.

    •  If the evidence for the charge turns out (none)
      to be virtually nonexistent, and the judge dismisses the case out of hand, will this guy have adequate grounds to sue the feds for malicious prosecution, as well as conspiracy to violate his constitutional rights?  Can you say Bivens?

      But, what were the dates in 2001 that are in question? I assume everything is after 9/11. But when exactly was he supposed to have been trying to get to Afghanistan? The war started on Oct. 7, I think (I was in Mexico on my honeymoon) and it didn't last very long. Was this bright student suicidal?

      I read that he could not get to Afghanistan because he couldn't get the proper paperwork. Well, I thought he was trained in forging documents.

      It just all seems odd to me that he wanted to be like Atta so early after the attacks. Did anybody really know that much about Atta at that time? I remember knowing his name, but that's about it.

      I'm not sure if this all adds up or not.
