A US appeals court confirmed Monday a life sentence handed down on Zacarias Moussaoui, a French national, for complicity in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.He's going to be spending a rather long time in the Supermax facility in Colorado. Trials of law work, as does keeping terrorists in the United States to serve their punishments. No supervillain prison breaks. No Michael Bay movie disasters. Just a cell in the most secure facility in the world.
The ruling upheld a sentence passed by a federal court in Virginia in May 2006 after Moussaoui pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the hijackings of the airliners used in the attacks in New York and Washington.
Moussaoui, who later recanted his testimony only to claim he was part of another Al-Qaeda plot, is serving a life sentence at a maximum security prison in Colorado.
Do it right. Even Bush got this one correct.
