Fwd: Potential terror jurors cite 9/11 doubts

Potential terror jurors cite 9/11 doubts By CURT ANDERSON,
Associated Press Writer Thu May 3, 2:31 PM ET

MIAMI - Many potential jurors in the Jose Padilla terrorism-support
case say they aren't sure who directed the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks
because they don't trust reporters or the federal government.
"There are too many ifs, too many things going on," one male juror
said. "I don't know the whole story."
Others say they just don't pay close enough attention to world
events to be certain.
"I'm oblivious to that stuff," one prospective female juror said
during questioning this week. "I don't watch the news much. I try to
avoid it."
The doubts were noted by a significant portion of the more than 160
people who have been questioned individually since jury selection in
the case began April 16.
