Moussaoui's Sentence

The ending of this admitted terrorist's trial was a grand finale. Read this:

Moussaoui was sentenced Thursday to life in prison after scolding Americans for missing a chance to learn from him why they are hated by al-Qaida terrorists. U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema sentenced the unrepentant 37-year-old Frenchman to six life sentences and told him he would "die with a whimper," isolated from the world and not in the glory of martyrdom.

Well said! Here's more from the Judge:

She went on: "You will never again get a chance to speak and that's an appropriate and fair ending."
Robert Hood, a former warden at Supermax, said the judge's description was accurate. Even when Moussaoui is allowed outside he would "see the sky but not the mountains or other terrain," he said.

One down, and Osama's next!
