Osama bin Laden said Zacarias Moussaoui, the only person convicted in the US for the September 11 attacks, had nothing to do with the al-Qaida operation, according to an audiotape released on the Internet Tuesday. "He had no connection at all with September 11," the voice on the tape said. "I am the one in charge of the 19 brothers and I never assigned brother Zacarias to be with them in that mission," the voice said, referring to the 19 hijackers on September 11, 2001. Bin Laden said Moussaoui's confession that he helped plan the attacks was "void," calling it the result of "pressures exercised against him during four and a half years" in US prison.
