"If we gang-mimed the guy ..."

James Lileks is the snark-master. Good snark is built on extreme sarcasm that reveals underlying truths, though. And so, as part of a post in which "the true horror of American Torture has been revealed," Lileks correctly explains that 9/11's would-be-20th-hijacker Mohammed al Qahtani "was broken by the concise application of cultural insensitivity." Read the whole thing, but not while drinking any beverages capable of nasal irritation.

I thought that Moussawi was to have been the twentieth.

I think the meaning is that he was to be the twentieth, but was prevented by circumstances outside his control.
