The Trial of Zacarias Moussaoui

Since the Sept. 11 attacks, the Bush administration has repeatedly tried to dodge the Constitution while prosecuting the war on terror. In the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker, the Justice Department is once again attempting to trample the Bill of Rights � in this case, by denying Mr. Moussaoui the right to see evidence critical to his defense. The judge should not allow the government to have its way. . . .

[T]he war on terrorism has not repealed the Constitution, and Judge Brinkema must ensure that it applies fully in Mr. Moussaoui's case.

I agree completely with this Op-Ed piece from the New York Times.
