'Moussaoui wasn't in on 9/11'

A new audio recording posted on the internet from the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks says a U.S. court has convicted the wrong man.

A statement allegedly from Osama bin Laden claims that Zacarias Moussaoui was in no way involved in the terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans.

"The truth is that he has no connection whatsoever with the events of September 11. I am certain of what I say because I was responsible for entrusting the 19 brothers ... with the raids," said the speaker who sounded like the leader of Al Qaeda.

He went on too dismiss Moussaoui's confession as "void," saying it was a reaction to "pressures exercised against him during four and a half years" in U.S. custody.

On May 4, Moussaoui wasn't convicted of conspiracy in connection to the hijackings. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole, miraculously avoiding the death penalty.

Two counter-terrorism officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they were aware of the message and had no reason to doubt its authenticity.
