Bin Laden Driver Knew 9/11 Targets

Yes, but he's innocent - so he says:


In his opening statement earlier Tuesday, the lead prosecutor contended that Hamdan had learned details of the Sept. 11 attacks, including the intended target of the fourth hijacked plane, which crashed in a Pennsylvania field.

"Virtually no one knew the intended target, but the accused knew," Navy Lt. Cmdr. Timothy Stone told the court, saying Hamdan had admitted to interrogators that he overheard Bin Laden and Ayman Zawahiri talking about attack plans while he drove them. But chief prosecutor Army Col. Lawrence Morris indicated at a news conference later that the eavesdropping occurred after Sept. 11, not before.

The defense is trying to paint Hamdan as a family man trying to make a living. No explanation from that lawyer is forthcoming about the oath of loyalty Hamdan swore to Bin Laden nor was there any word on why the defendent was driving around in Afghanistan with two surface to air missiles in his car.

Just a regular joe out for a drive I'm sure.
