THE TOPIC IS NATIONAL SECURITY
Moussaoui's trial is underway, and his flight instructor testified about his suspicions about his student.
Wellsboro instructor testifies in terror trial
Prevost said he was an instructor at the Pan Am Flight Academy in Eagan, Minn., when he asked Moussaoui on the first day of class whether he was a Muslim. Prevost said he became suspicious when Moussaoui responded with a terse "I am nothing."
"I said, 'Should we be doing this?' " Prevost told the court. "'We don't know anything about this guy and we're teaching him to throw the switches on a (Boeing) 747.' "
He said he raised his concern the next morning with school official Alan McHale and was told: "He paid the money. We don't care."
Prevost said he responded, "We'll care when there's a hijacking ... and the lawsuits come in after they find out we taught him how to do this."
