Below you see a screenshot of the below messy code. I am sorry I couldn't minimise it more. Otherwise I fear I wouldn't be able to back port it to my actual document.

The many A's overflow the minipage. Don't worry about it. It would be nice though if I would get warned when that happens.

Question

When you look at DDD and BBB and the horizontal line, they are clearly not vertically aligned. How can I get them aligned?

    Best thing would be to start with a blank document, just adding what you really need and know why you need it. – Johannes_B Apr 20 at 22:01

Adding a @{} at the beginning of tabular column specification should get rid of that unwanted left indent before the first column. Check the answer to the question here for more details.

\indentStd\begin{tabular}[t]{@{}p{\lenB}p{8cm}p{\lenC}}}

Following is your complete code that would make DDD align with BBB: (NOTE: I have commented out \usepackage{itemsep}, and invocation \noitemsep as I do not have that package installed; don't forget to uncomment those two lines after you paste this code back.)
