OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A man imprisoned for his role in the September 11th terrorist attacks says he wants to talk in open court about an al-Qaida plot to kill Bill and Hillary Clinton. He also complains that he has rodents in his Colorado prison cell.

Zacarias Moussaoui (zak-uh-REE’-uhs moo-SOW’-ee) wrote a four-page, handwritten letter last month to an Oklahoma federal court. The court filed the letter Monday. The Oklahoman first reported about the document Thursday.

Moussaoui is serving a life term in Florence, Colorado, on charges filed after the 2011 attacks. Defense lawyers have said Moussaoui is schizophrenic, while prosecutors said a 2002 evaluation found only a personality disorder.

His letter says he’s been attacked in prison and that his cell is "infested by rodents." The Federal Bureau of Prisons didn’t immediately comment.
