Mossaoui Verdict: It's A Wonderful Life

Al Qaeda member and 9/11 plotter Zacarias Moussaoui will spend the rest of his life in solitary confinement in a super-maximum security prison in Colorado.

And it's a win-win for everyone.

The prosecutors got to argue for the death penalty, showing they're tough on terror, without actually turning Moussaoui into a martyr.

The families of the victims got justice, knowing that at least this terrorist will never threaten anyone ever again.

America got to demonstrate its moral superiority over the terrorists who kill the innocent.

And Moussaoui is robbed of the martyrdom he so craves. He'll spend the rest of his life alone, dropped into a oubliette, anonymous and forgotten.

Well, I guess not EVERYONE wins.

I'm good with it though.
