Moussaoui to plead guilty?

According to the Washington Post, Moussaoui plans to plead guilty to the charges leveled against him. Only one hitch:

If a judge finds Moussaoui mentally competent, he could enter the plea as early as this week, the Post reported in Tuesday’s editions, citing sources familiar with the case.

So, a judge can now determine the mental competence of a defendent, eh? Just another power that they have taken upon themselves, I suppose. Can’t have someone saying "hey, I’m guilty" and getting away with it. They must be crazy if they are pleading guilty. Must give every defendent the chance to get off on a technicality.

Moussaoui, a French citizen, tried to plead guilty in 2002 but took back the plea a week later. The Post sources said U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema in Alexandria, Va., is scheduled to meet with Moussaoui this week to determine whether he has the mental capacity to enter a plea.

Does she have a degree in psychology or psychiatry? I would bet no.
