Imprisoned terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui wants to testify in Oklahoma City federal court

By Nolan Clay The Oklahoman

OKLAHOMA CITY — An admitted al-Qaida terrorist who is in prison for the 9/11 attacks is asking to testify in Oklahoma City federal court about alleged plots to shoot down Air Force One and to assassinate former President Bill Clinton.

Zacarias Moussaoui took flight lessons at a Norman flight school in 2001 as part of his plan to pilot a plane into a building, and he also is claiming that a Saudi prince assisted him in Norman in “my Islamic Terrorist activities” there in 2001.

“I am ready to testify about all the above and more in your court in an Open Hearing that I request,” he wrote by hand in a four-page pleading.

Moussaoui, 46, is serving a life sentence without the possibility of release at the federal Supermax penitentiary in Florence, Colorado. The French citizen often has been referred to in media accounts as “the 20th hijacker.”
