Moussaoui jury rejects death penalty, common sense

Convicted 9/11 terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui has been sentenced to life in prison. The creep had this to say:

Moussaoui, as he was led out of the courtroom after the 15-minute hearing, said: “America, you lost. I won.” He clapped his hands as he was escorted away.

And you wonder why Osama bin Laden called America a “weak horse” and a “paper tiger”?

    I disagree with the statement that “Osama Won.” I think that Moussaoui tried to paint a brave face on it by stating that he won, when the truth is he got the result he wanted the least. He longed to become the next posterboy for the islamic extremist martyrs. Instead, he gets to go to a supermax facility in Florence, CO to spend 23 out of every 24 hours in a concrete box in solitary confinement with absolutely nothing to do except stare at the walls (no tv, no books, no interaction with anyone), rotting away for the rest of his life. Instead of becoming a martyr for the cause, he gets locked away and forgotten by the folks he hoped to influence the most.

    I made a small mistake in my earlier post. I meant to say I disagree with the statement that “Moussaoui Won.” Along those lines, apparently a small number of the cells have 12″ televisions built into the wall…where anger management classes are piped into the cell daily (and I thought this country had a law against cruel and unusual punishment). If I was one of the inmates, I’d rather attack a guard to get shot than live the rest of my life in that hell on earth. No wonder Tim McVeigh waived all his appeals and asked to be put to death immediately.
