Moussaoui Plea Pending Determination of Sanity

U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema in Alexandria is scheduled to meet with Moussaoui this week to determine if he has the mental capacity to enter a plea now, the sources said. — Jerry Markon, Washington Post Staff Writer
Not to defend the man that may have been the very center of what has become the most devastating attack on U.S. soil but how can anyone be considered sane after initiating such destruction? No, I'm not saying Moussaoui cannot be held responsible. Nor am I suggesting that because of this lack of sanity, the sentence should be anything less. I guess what troubles me is this. If you are going to insist on a certain punishment for a crime, does one's sanity really come into play?
