Prosecute the lawyers

Michelle Malkin blogged You've probably heard that a judge tossed out the most of the prosecution's case for the death penalty against al Qaeda terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui, thanks to a Transportation Security Agency lawyer who provided trial transcripts to and briefed potential witnesses.

Now comes a credible-sounding allegation that the entire incident was orchestrated by lawyers for federal bailout recipients United Airlines and American Airlines, who wanted to undermine the prosecutors' case against Moussaoui in order to bolster their legal defense in a separate civil suit.

Big Lizards explains the whole thing here.

Carla Martin should definitely be prosecuted, and she should be encouraged to testify against the American Airlines' lawyer and the United Airlines lawyer who initiated the conspiracy. If you can't get a conviction, then ask Dick Cheney to invite them on a hunting trip.
