Al-Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui testified on Monday that he and would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid were supposed to hijack a fifth airplane on September 11, 2001, and fly it into the White House.

Moussaoui's testimony on his own behalf stunned the courtroom as he disclosed details he had never revealed before. It was in stark contrast to Moussaoui's previous statements in which he said the White House attack was to come later if the United States refused to release a radical Egyptian sheik imprisoned on earlier terrorist convictions.
