Better Than The Death Penalty
Zacarias Moussaoui will not be a martyr. He will never again experience the freedom that he would have been working to destroy. This man will experience an horrifically empty life. Decades will pass while he slowly dies. The world will move on, civilization will continue to advance, his religion will continue to experience enlightenment, and Zacarias Moussaoui will be able to do nothing but watch. Nobody will remember him. The cause for which he gave his life will fail. To execute him would have been to give him the only thing that he ever really desired. To imprison him for life will be to demonstrate to him and his death cult that to the free world, their movement is just one more irritant to be removed, neutralized, and discarded.
