Al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui testified Monday that he and would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid were supposed to hijack a fifth airplane on Sept. 11, 2001, and fly it into the White House.
Moussaoui's testimony on his own behalf stunned the courtroom as he disclosed details he had never revealed before. It was in stark contrast to Moussaoui's previous statements in which he said the White House attack was to come later if the United States refused to release a radical Egyptian sheik imprisoned on earlier terrorist convictions.

I don't understand this, am I reading this article correctly, it states that Moussaoui says he was going to be the 5th hijacker, but then the article itself states, 'Asked by Zerkin if he was supposed to be one of the men who would pilot a plane on 9/11, he said no, adding: "I'm sorry, I don't know about the number of planes but I was not the fifth (pilot) hijacker."'
So which is it, or did they just not expect people to read the article?

Why has Moussaoui's testimony regarding Osama Bin Laden not been used to indict Osama? Is his testimony not credible? Here we are over four and a half years after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and still no indictment of Osama Bin Laden in the USA despite a now confessed and convicted conspirator testifying to this.
Its also not as if false confessions haven't happened before.
