"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A Minnesota flight instructor who notified his bosses
of student Zacarias Moussaoui's suspicious behavior received a $5 million
reward Thursday from the State Department, two government officials told
CNN."


The good guys won one. So, I wonder what kind airplanes he's going to buy.

Now its time for someone in the state department (or ICE or INS)
to be fined $5 million for not doing anything about it.

Did they withhold the $2.5m in taxes before they gave it to him or
expect him to pay estimateds on it?

I wondered that, too.

Who knows, maybe he'll buy the FBO and write it off as a business expense.
If it were me the first thing I'd do is buy one of those toy Cessnas out of
the Sporty's catalog and send it to Moussaoui with a note that says.
"Hijack this, jackass."

I'd be willing to bet the reward was tax free. Rewards under that
program (Rewards for Justice, authorized by 22 U.S.C. 2708) can be
made in secret, with the required reporting to Congress classified. Hard
to see how that secrecy could be maintained if the money had to reported
on a tax return!

"When asked what he intended to do with the windfall, the flight instructor
replied; 'I guess I will keep flying and getting ratings until it's gone.'"

That shouldn't take very long.
