John Weess v. Moussaoui: Another Federal Agent Who Made A Difference

By Debbie Schlussel
In our ongoing coverage and commentary regarding the trial of Al-Qaeda terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, we discussed the heroism of FBI Special Agent Harry Samit and the late INS Special Agent Steven Nordmann.
Both of them arrested Moussaoui and both complained that the FBI brass would not allow them a warrant to search Moussaoui’s belongings and computer–despite Samit’s desperate, exasperating multiple attempts to inculcate them with the plain, glaring facts about Moussoui.
But we forgot another agent, then-INS Special Agent John Weess. Agent Weess–as documented by Moussaoui trial testimony, the 9/11 Commission, multiple Justice Department reports, and media coverage–was a vital part of the arrest and investigation of Moussaoui, and was there side-by-side with Samit (and Nordmann), desperately trying to save American lives in the face of thick-skulled, intransigent FBI supervisors.

Weess was the co-case agent on the Moussaoui case (along with Samit) and was also desperately trying to get the warrant to search Moussaoui. Weess also interviewed Moussaoui, along with Samit, on 8/16 and 8/17 of 2001, about three weeks before the 9/11 attacks.
We can say with confidence that Agent Weess would back up Samit’s testimony at the Moussaoui trial, as well as CNN reports regarding Moussaoui telling lies to Federal Agents.
All three of these agents are American heroes who deserve our respect and gratitude–not the treatment they’ve had thus far. As we’ve repeatedly said, that should be reserved for the FBI brass who allowed Moussaoui to go unexamined until 3,000 were murdered.

i would mention THIS trial has as much merit as http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/04/10/news/terror.php but your readers would need a little common sense and a bit of history to see that THIS too ain’t nothing more that the Stalinist show trials in the last century.
Maybe i should forget that the FACTS are pointing to a Reichstag fire and join the Jackboot Generation.

Hey Eminemsrevenge, you’re on the right track. Now put our borders into the equation and with the immigration reform, why wasn’t marriage a part of the law? Meaning, you could live in the U.S. if you marry an American. Imagine a terrorist marrying an American, only to bomb a target? Say bridges, trains, nuclear power plants, Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in OK City? Oops, I’m sorry, it was two white boys who did it, not the Middle Eastern John Doe.
