Zacarias Moussaoui's delusions of grandeur

Zacarias Moussaoui claimed in sworn testimony in the penalty phase of his trial that he was supposed to lead a fifth hijacking crew on 9/11, to fly a plane into the White House. He claims that Richard Reid, the "shoe bomber," was also part of that conspiracy.

Richard Reid was an inept bumbler. Moussaoui himself is hardly a poster boy for effective terrorism. Moussaoui's lawyers are suggesting that Moussaoui is lying, exaggerating his role in the events of 9/11. That seems likely.
