Bio: which is right?[edit]

The french bio says he had a good education, friends, and graduated from college. English version of moussaoui's life that says he faced racism, apparently implying he did not find his place in society....

Also french version says her mother was working for the state, which implies she had life employment and was financially secure.... The english version by saying she raised her children out of a cleaner's wage seem to imply the opposite. Which is right ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.112.2.203 (talk) 14:48, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Who arrested Moussaoui??[edit]

Check your facts please. I believe an INS Special Agent arrested Moussaoui on a student overstay immigration law violation. Special Agent Steven J. Nordmann (now deceased) was also present and he filled out the paperwork for Moussaoui to have a deportation hearing with the Immigration Judge in Bloomington, MN. The FBI did not get authority (from the Attorney General) to arrest for immigration law violations until 2003.

According to a number of sources it was a joint action where FBI tipped off the INS and they jointly arrested him -- Esemono 09:36, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Moussaoui was arrested in Minnesota August 16, 2002 after officials of a flight school, the Pan Am International Flight Academy in Eagan, a suburb of Minneapolis, tipped off the FBI that he was seeking flight training on a Boeing 747 jumbo jet. ... Moussaoui was not even transferred from INS detention to FBI custody until after September 11.

On August 16, 2001, Moussaoui was arrested in Minnesota by agents of the INS and the FBI

Just an interesting link[edit]

Not sure if the fact merits a sentence in the article, or where, but it seemed like an interesting, little-known tidbit Sherurcij (talk) (Terrorist Wikiproject) 02:32, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

  • It is indeed an interesting link. --- Faisal 15:28, 21 April 2006 (UTC)
  • The article which I had trouble accessing basically talked about how:

A business card found in the wreckage of United Flight 93 had a phone number scrawled on the back. The Prosecutors said the card belonged to hijacker Ziad Jarrah and that Moussaoui had called the number thus linking Moussaoui to the 911 hijackers.[2]

But I don't know where to put this in the article. -- Esemono 09:20, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Birthplace[edit]

In what city and department of France was he born?Patchouli 16:30, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Not only the birthplace, but the whole personal history section is lacking dates, locations. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.249.64.5 (talk) 11:26, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

Need reference for correct version[edit]

The original version was:

Moussaoui admitted his involvement with al-Qaeda, but claimed he was not involved in the 9/11 attacks. Rather, he claimed that he was preparing for a separate attack. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had earlier told investigators that Moussaoui met with him prior to September 11, but that he, Mohammed, chose not to use him. No evidence directly linking Moussaoui to the 9/11 attacks has yet been released.

The changed version is now:

Moussaoui admitted his involvement with al-Qaeda, but claimed he was not involved in the 9/11 attacks. Rather, he claimed that he was preparing for a separate attack. Ramzi Binalshibh told investigators that Moussaoui met with him prior to September 11, but Binalshibh chose not to use him, as he felt that Moussaoui had previously drawn too much attention to himself through a series of flight lessons and inquiries about crop dusting. No evidence directly linking Moussaoui to the 9/11 attacks has yet been released.

Which is correct and where is the link to the info? bov (talk) 23:30, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Role of Gerald Zerkin[edit]

The Gerald Zerkin article describes how Zerkin defended Zacarias Moussaoui, but this article never mentions him. Another editor should resolve this discrepancy. --DThomsen8 (talk) 01:20, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

RE: "Ties to Blackwater USA" section[edit]

So he has a notebook with their phone number on it? How is this noteworthy exactly? Even if true.. he has a phone number on a notebook.. I mean seriously here.

It would seem this section is here for nothing more than inciting controversy while contributing nothing to the article overall. Thoughts on removing it?
