Five Years

Here in NYC this morning (not at Ground Zero, just my apartment on 78th Street) on the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on America, I've been looking at some now too-familiar photographs, video clips and reading the latest musings about that terrible, world-changing day.

Here is an image I had not seen before: A collection of photographs of the individuals killed (all except 92) on September 11, 2001, introduced as an exhibit in the federal case U.S. v. Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person convicted in the US in connection with the 9/11 attacks. (Exh. GX-P200336) (On May 4, 2006 Moussaoui was sentenced to life in prison without parole.) And if you would like a better view of this exhibit, or to review an archive of trial documents, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has a
CD-ROM of Moussaoui trial exhibits available for $10.

(FindLaw also has a good collection of documents from
civil and criminal terror cases, including the Moussaoui case.)

SLP remembers victims of the attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.
