Moussaoui - Not With A Bang, But A Whimper
In Alexandria, Virginia, the jury finally came back from deliberations with a verdict for the only person charged in the September 11 attacks.
For some inexplicable reason, this jury was not able to conclude this Waste Of Skin And Breathable Air deserved to pay the ultimate price for his crimes - that being death. Instead he was today sentenced to six life terms without the possibility of parole.
As much as I would have liked to see Moussaoui "ride the lighting" (actually slip peacefully away from a lethal drug cocktail), I actually like the idea of this WOSABA slowly rotting away in a Federal Supermax Prison. His comings and goings will be dictated by the country he attempted to bring down. He will be among the lowest of the low - probably even below rapists and child molesters - even hardened criminals have a hierarchy.
I, for one, hope he enjoyed the two-minute show he got to put on this morning. It was his last public statement - unless you count the conversations he gets to have with himself in his 7 by 12 foot soundproofed cell. Moussaoui can also talk back to the 13-inch black and white television which will beam a non-stop parade of anger management, parenting, and religious programming for him to enjoy.
Oh, and one more thing Moussaoui gets to ponder for the next few decades - his sentence was delivered by a female judge. That's right, Mr. Moussaoui, a woman has seen to it that you rot in a cell courtesy of the US taxpayer.
Enjoy your stay.
Here endeth the lesson.
