Feds Pay $5 Million to Moussaoui Flight Instructor
The United States Treasury is $5 million poorer today. The Bush Administration has paid Zacarias Moussaoui's flight instructor a $5 million reward for providing information that led to his arrest and conviction.
Moussaoui had no part in 9/11. He was neither the 5th pilot nor the 20th hijacker, despite having claimed to be both at various times, depending on his mood. Ultimately, he recanted both assertions.
Then there's this:
The reward from the State Department's "Rewards for Justice" program is the first and only one to date to a U.S. citizen related to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the officials said.
It is also unusual because Moussaoui, who was imprisoned at the time of the attacks, was never named as a wanted suspect by the program. The program mainly seeks information about perpetrators or planners of terrorist acts against U.S. interests and citizens abroad.
