Need an antidote to the Moussaoui verdict? Go out this weekend to see "United 93."
Zacarias Moussaoui is lucky the jurors at his sentencing trial weren't allowed to see the movie "United 93" the day before reaching a verdict. If they had, rather than handing him life in prison, it is likely that one or more of the jurors would have come out of the box to deliver the death sentence himself -- just as the four doomed men on Flight 93 charged their hijackers to stop its fanatic pilots from flying the airliner into another American building.
Some will say the Moussaoui life sentence merely proves that we in the U.S. are beyond biblical justice, beyond an eye for an eye, even if our Islamic enemies do not bother to claim any grievance larger than resentment to justify the most startling slaughter of innocents all over the world. This argument -- that the refusal to impose the death penalty on Moussaoui shows "we are not like them" -- might have been entertainable before September 11. It may no longer be. [snip]
Our sense of normalcy may not be in our best interest.
As an example, one thought that occurred in the hour after seeing "United 93" had to do with the recent debate in the U.S. over the warrantless wiretapping of suspected phone calls between terrorists. In that hour, this "debate" seemed quite otherworldly. It is unlikely that in the first six months after September 11 Sen. Arlen Specter would ever have thought to intone that the wiretapping program was "in flat violation" of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. But he does now. Times change.

France will immediately start agitation for his transfer to a French prison (i.e., his release). This will be an irritant to US-EU relations which, since it has the potential to go on for 50 years, may morph into a problem.
As long as France fails to gain his custody, the French state will weaken before its rapidly growing Islamic minority.
The UN will become involved. You can bet the General Assembly will "require" his transfer to France within the next year.
He will become Mr. International Mumia, but with no deadline for his transport to the next world the agitation will never end.
Every Democrat who runs for President for the next 50 years will be his Liberator-in-Waiting, in the spirit of international cooperation and respect for the world community, of course.
Now, that's the Europeans and the Canadians.
The Muzzies will immediately start direct action to gain his release. The impetuous ones will of course take hostages, and kill them. The clever ones will commit acts of terror in Europe and Canada, to turn up the heat.
This will go on, and on, and on until he is transferred to France (released) or killed.
In retrospect, the failure of the administration to execute him in 2001 was an incredible act of cowardice.
The jurors should be sterilized so that they don't contaminate the gene pool with their stupidity.
People sometimes die in prison. There is still hope.
death by unga-bunga...
Unfortunately, this hump Moussaoui isn't an enemy of the Clintons like Jim McDougal. Amazing how his heart medication just happened to be unavailable and poof!, no more Jim.
According to my "in family expert" on prisoners, my brother-in-law, who spent 23 years in prison, there are lots of patriotic cons. One of them will kill him - That's my prediction.
When they re-activate 'Devils Island', then they can bring up the subject again..!
But, but poor widdle thing, his daddy wasn't father of the year!
Do we know WHO the jurors were, and which individual worked so hard to convince the rest that LIFE was better than DEATH>?
We are too stoopid to survive the war against terror.
The Supermax facility in Colorado where this scumbag is heading allows no contact between inmates, Mousse's only contact will be whoever the guard(s) are on duty. His meals will be slid through a slot in the door, he will be let out of his cell at the very most, 1 hour a day for exercise IF he behaves. He will be permitted one shower per week. He will have an 8 inch plastic TV mounted in the wall, but no actual TV broadcasts, just taped educational self-improvement programs (which could constitute "cruel and unusual punishment" in themselves, lol), and again - if he behaves, he gets the daily Islamobabble prayer programs so he can point his head toward Mecca and wonder WTF allah is doing to him.
Be assured of this, there is no way that France is going to get this scumbag out of the U.S. Mousse-baby is still the property of the U.S. Government, they're not finished with him, and won't be for a very long time.
Yes, it would be emotionally gratifying to see this SOB swing from a rope, but the Supermax cell he will be inhabiting for the rest of his days is nothing more than a waiting room for his eventual tranfer to Hell.
What I heard was that the jury was basically deadlocked, that a certain number wanted to fry him, but others did not. And since they couldn't come to a consensus on execution, he got life.
Don't know how true that is, though...
"One of them will kill him - That's my prediction."
Bad thing is - they only have one hour each day to get at him.
President Rodham and Secretary of State Holbrooke may feel differently.
... that is release him from a moving aircraft at 15,000 feet without a parachute, somewhere with a chance that he might be impaled on the Eiffel Tower.
But that's just me.
I believe he(Moussaoui), will be a guest in our prison for quite awhile. The French have always given us a hard time over, well, just about everything, just handing this piece of sh*t muzzie scum over to them won't change that.
The jurors came from the Wash DC suburbs. this is a VERY liberal area - probably several were against the death penalty for any reason.
At U.S. taxpayer expense,Moussaoui will be become a great holy man and cleric while in prison, converting thousands of ethnically disadvantaged fellow inmates, to become devout followers of fundamental islamic teachings.
Wrong, Jim. This Canadian government will NEVER lobby for his release or transfer.
I believe the mastermind behind the first WTC bombing is being held at the same prison. They aren't allowed any interaction with other prisoners.
As was with Jeffery D., the guards can "plan" some extra time with general pop.
He'd probably enjoy that.
I don't doubt that at all. My hope is that something better will be hammered out from whatever is left over.
Insurance is for catastrophic health care, not for "maintenance issues".
People who use insurance for health maintenance will pay high premiums because it is now an industry (scheme). People who pay cash for health maintenance won't participate in the insurance scheme. Better insurance for catastrophes health care is needed.
I know that, which is why Al Qaeda will be working very hard to get a Canadian government elected which will.
You think Canada's eastern city dwellers will be any different when the bombs start going off?
I heard the sentence is to solitary confinement. It would seem the other cons will never even see him.
The meal will be slid between two doors. The guard will exit, and when that door is locked, his cell door will be unlocked to enable him to get the food.
I suspect he will be on a hunger strike soon enough.
The question is whether we allow him to expire or force feed him.
The FALN prisoners were nowhere near as well-known as Mousaoui, so it probably looked politically safer than pardoning Moussaoui would be.
If he gets to watch any tv I hope they make him watch Fiddler on the Roof , The Bible shows and anything anti muslim. 24-7. Of course this is not torture, its entertainment. Id love to see him go out of whatever mind he has. I am afraid that we will have a kidnapping where hes going to be the one they demand release.
For those who argue that his sentence of life without parole is the worse than death, can they guarantee that no Americans will be taken hostage/killed for Moussaoui's release, or that some future liberal president won't give him clemency?
I wish that were true; I'd love to see him thrown into the general population with street thugs. But the reality is that in the institution at which he'll be incarcerated he will spend 23 hours a day locked up alone, an hour a day in an exercise room (if he behaves) and will have NO contact with other prisoners. His only human contact will be guards and an occasional interrogator.
The best we can hope for is that he will be fed lots of pork, so he'll starve himself to a "peaceful" death, and is shown the pigskin body bag awaiting him.
The daughter of one of the victims said her mother would be happy with the verdict since she was against the death penalty.
Good thing too.
Maybe we can get a guard with terminal cancer (nothing to lose) assigned to him...
Initially I was upset about no death penalty... but then I realized he would be in jail with some d*mn nasty people who probably don't like to hear "death to America".
I think when they get a hold of him, he will be sodomized, beat, tortured, and hopefully left to live to endure this day after day after day.
Never thought I would wish that on someone... but I do to this b*st*ard!
I'm for the death penalty, but I think this sentence might be a greater "hell" than being put to sleep peacefully. I can't imagine a life like this. I've toured 3 active Federal prisons and Alcatraz. Just those tours were enough confinement for me!
The next Democrat President will probably pardon him to appease the muslims and he also holds many of the same views that the Democrats hold.
I imagine the US has used back channels to explain to the French that any such attempt will be met with severe response.
Ah, I see. So it's all Bush's fault. [yawn]
"Every Democrat who runs for President for the next 50 years will be his Liberator-in-Waiting, in the spirit of international cooperation and respect for the world community, of course."
Hyperbole is fun, but of course there's no way a U.S. president would ever let this guy out or hand him over to France.
Somehow, I have a feeling that something will happen during one of those hour blocks eventually. And the guards will just happen to be looking the other way when it does happen. Gotta love prison justice!
