You have got to be kidding me

Telegraph | News | Sept 11 trial halted over Government conduct:
The trial of one of the September 11 conspirators has been suspended while the judge decides whether to rule out the death penalty, after it was revealed that the American government had been coaching witnesses. On calling recess in the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, a confessed al-Qa'eda member, District Court Judge Leonie said: "In all the years I have been on the bench I have never seen such an egregious violation of the court's rules on coaching witnesses."

In which way are you being kidded? That it's being suspended, or that the prosecution bothered with coaching witnesses?

That the prosecution bothered with coaching witnesses, especially in such an obvious and clumsy manner. Way to blow it.

Ah, yeah. If a different person had written this I'd've excepted griping about stopping the trial at all, so I was confused.
