Man Charged in Sept. 11 Attacks Demands That Qaeda Leaders Testify

Zacarias Moussaoui has demanded that the four most senior leaders of Al Qaeda in American custody be called to testify at his trial and has described one of the captured men as “my commander,” according to court documents made public today. Mr. Moussaoui, the only person charged in an American court with involvement in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, said in his handwritten court filings that testimony from the four Qaeda leaders would demonstrate his innocence. The captured Qaeda leaders include Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who was apprehended this month in Pakistan and who is alleged to have been the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks. Mr. Moussaoui referred to Mr. Mohammed as “Top Mujahid Brother Mohammed” and described another of the captured men, Abu Zubaydah, as “my commander Zubaydah.” Even as he continued to assert that he had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Mr. Moussaoui made no effort in the court filings to hide his continued allegiance to Al Qaeda and his commitment to the use of violence.
