NPR's Greg Allen reports on the dilemma facing the federal judge who'll preside in the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui. He's the man the government believes was supposed to be the 20th hijacker on Sept. 11. Judge Leonie Brinkema will hold a hearing today to consider two difficult questions: whether Moussaoui is mentally competent to serve as his own defense lawyer and whether he can get a fair trial if he does.
