U.S. Intelligence May Aid Terrorism Suspect

Attorneys for a terrorism suspect in Germany voiced skepticism last year when U.S. officials agreed to submit as evidence intelligence reports gleaned from the interrogations of captured al Qaeda leaders. Citing prisoner abuse in U.S. jails in Iraq and elsewhere, the lawyers argued that the reports would be unreliable as evidence in the trial of their client, accused of being a member of the Hamburg cell that led the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. As the trial nears an end, however, attorneys for defendant Mounir Motassadeq have changed their views. They find evidence for acquittal in the reports, notably an account from one of the interrogated men that only he and three of the 19 hijackers who died on Sept. 11 were core members of the Hamburg cell.Full Story
