Zacarias Moussaoui Gets to Live

Updated

The twelve members of the jury decided against the death penalty for a man who would kill them in a hot minute.

Expose the Left has the video of the announcement.

Hot Air has a round up of blog reaction.

Here's the story from the AP:

A federal jury rejected the death penalty for al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui on Wednesday and decided he must spend life in prison for his role in the deadliest terrorist attack in U.S. history.


After seven days of deliberation, the nine men and three women rebuffed the government's appeal for death for the only person charged in this country in the four suicide jetliner hijackings that killed nearly 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001.

Three jurors decided Moussaoui had only limited knowledge of the Sept. 11 plot and three described his role in the attacks as minor, if he had any role at all.

Moussaoui, as he was led out of the courtroom after the 15-minute hearing, said: "America, you lost. I won." He clapped his hands as he was escorted away.

So, Moussaoui dared the American people on that jury to kill him, and they blinked. What a travesty.

And notice that the verdict was not unanimous, which means that a few jurors had their heads on straight

Additional thoughts: Islam is growing quickly in prisons all over this country as its followers prey on the anger inmates feel toward America. I don't like the idea that Moussaoui will have access to more potential terror converts.

Update: The Political Pitbull has audio of Rudy Giuliani reacting.

Update II: Ace speculates that an anti-death penalty liberal may have lied his/her way on to the jury.

Update III: Daveed Gartenstein-Ross at Counterterrorism Blog sees things more optimistically that I do:

As Moussaoui left the courtroom today, he defiantly stated, "America, you lost. I won." But whether or not he received the death penalty, we could expect this kind of bluster from Moussaoui. What speaks louder than these words are his actions during the sentencing phase -- actions that scream out a desire for martyrdom. Did America lose in this case? In my opinion, it did not.

Update IV: John Podhoretz weighs in with this:

There is only one justifiable reason for a juror to make this choice. That juror has to believe the death penalty is wrong under any and all circumstances. To imagine that there can be any mitigating circumstance regarding Moussaoui's actual guilt is moral idiocy of the highest order.

Update V: Don Surber is dismayed, and rightly so:

And so it is with Zacarias Moussaoui, the only living 9/11 conspirator. The jury gave him life instead of death. A few talking heads are on TV saying how making him live is worse than executing him. I used to believe that too. But Moussaoui just made a chump out of the United States. He just showed the world that his side will kill 3,000 Americans without blinking an eye. We cannot even execute this scum.

Additional thoughts: Not only did Moussaoui make a chump out of the US, as Don says above, but now he gets three meals a day, a roof over his head, and medical care all at the expense of the American taxpayer. Again, I say what a travesty.

Update VI: Hot Air has the pdf file of the jury's sentencing questionnaire. These people's answers are baffling. They thought he was not responsible for the deaths of 3,000 people on 9/11 but was responsible for the physical, emotional, and psychological injuries of the survivors. These answers are schizophrenic. Speaking of which, they didn't think he was mentally ill.

And I am outraged and sick at this: Nine jurors said that his father having a violent temper and abusing him was a mitigating factor. Nine jurors found that his having an unstable childhood and dysfunctional family causing him to be placed in an orphanage was a mitigating factor.

Not one member of the jury thought that the death penalty would make him a martyr, so that theory goes right out the window, folks.

So, why did the jury spare this man his life? One reason: They were total bleeding heart liberals. JPod nailed this one. These jurors weren't going to give this guy the death penalty because they don't believe in it. If this guy can get away with the excuse that he had a hard childhood, then these people will not give anyone the death penalty. I bet they wouldn't give Bin Laden the death penalty because they'd find some childhood experience to spare him his life too.

I'm disgusted.

Update VII: Andrew Cochran of Counterterrorism Blog sees Moussaoui's success in avoiding the death penalty as a lesson for other jihadis.

I'm even more disgusted.

I predict that this will cause a few Americans to lose their lives down the road when his release is demanded to free some hostages.

But that is our judicial system. My understanding is that the sticking point was whether Moussani was deemed directly responsible for the 9/11 deaths. If that is the legal criteria, I could see it not being met. At the same time, we may as a nation want to re-think our legal systems response to terrorism.

CollegePundit:

I have to say that I would only be concerned if that son of a bitch didn't get anything BUT solitary confinement for the rest of his miserable life. Let him rot in a cell, alone, with only the thoughts that he DOES NOT get to be a martyr to keep him company. Someone ought to accidentally leave a pair of shoelaces in his cell one day, once he's softened up a bit.

Does it sting in a sense that we won't get to jab a needle in his arm? For a lot of people, that's an obvious yes - I, personally, would have liked to see him in front of a firing squad armed with shoulder-mounted rocket launchers. What we have to remember that is that, at the end of the day, he will never get to see the outside of a prison, and he can be sure that he's not going to get to talk to any of his al Qaeda pals on the inside when it comes to the mail.

At the same time, it absolutely floors me how close the prosecution came to screwing up the case against him so that he'd get a mistrial. The government had a slam-dunk case, and it was almost lost.

Stupid. Just plain stupid.

Just plenty of time to sit and think about... who knows? who cares?

While I think he deserves death, I believe if we kill him we'd be doing 2 things we shouldn't:

2). Give the islamofascists another face for their posters

Fred Wilson:

I think it was the right call. This verdict castrates the militant muslims who were waiting on the edge of their seat for a death penalty sentencing. They won't have another martyr to rally around.
As for the cost of his incarceration, which I'm sure is a topic that proponents of his death will make an issue of, we can write it off to just another enemy combatant in detention like the ones in Gitmo.

At least one of them has gotten a fair trial.

Peter F.:

I don't like the idea that Moussaoui will have access to more potential terror converts.

I don't agree with this; it's an unfounded fear, especially in Moussaoui's case.

First, Moussaoui will not be housed with the general prison population; he'll be squirreled far, far away in the maximum security wing and placed in his own cell with other life-time offenders who, even if he does manage to recruit them, will also never again step foot on free ground to carry out any terrorist plots. And even if (and that's a big 'if') his 'yard' time does include one or two other inmates, it again won't matter for the same reason. Any prisoners of Moussaoui's stature are closely and strictly monitored, especially any contact with the outside world. So I wouldn't worry about this at all.

I'm also for not giving Moussaoui his wish: the death penalty. It would turn him into the very martyr he hoped to be all along. And that's even worse than him living for him. So I think the jurors' heads were on very straight.

Trust me, I want the SOB dead, too. But I think one or more 9/11 victim's family members will find a way to get that done in prison. I would almost guarantee it. I know I would if I were one.

If the jury found correctly and Moussaoui did in fact only have "limited knowledge of the 9/11 attack plans," then under that statutes he can hardly be executed. He did not plan the 9/11 attacks, and despite his own testimony was probably not even supposed to participate in them.

In my opinion it was stupid for the Justice Department to have pursued this trial on the evidence they had. The should have taken his guilty plea, locked him up for life, and not given this asshole a public forum to gloat and spout his bullshit.

I also think that this provides an argument against those people here and abroad who like to spout the line that we're above our own laws. The Moose got a fair and public trial, and I don't think anybody can criticize the verdict as "unjust". He isn't rotting in some Sooper-Seekrit CIA Torture Prison(TM), and we haven't treated him inhumanely.

He can claim that he won.

Since he already seems somewhat mad, perhaps solitary will totally push him over.

I do agree with mantis here. I think it was a stretch to say that because of information he may possibly have had access to that we might could have thwarted the 9/11 plot....one could execute Bill Clinton for ignoring the threat on as strong a case (maybe not a bad idea, but not the way our system works, nonetheless).

A quiet sentencing phase after his confession would have kept this from being a media circus, and folks would have been going "who?" anytime his name was mentioned by now.

All that said, though, how does one reconcile that after a lengthy deliberation, the jury found that he could face the death penalty...then after another lengthy deliberation decide he shouldn't get the death penalty. And personally, I don't see a point of life imprisonment...if someone will never again be fit to enter society, he shouldn't be a burden on that society.

My, such eloquent and intelligent discourse. You seem to have quite a fascination with anal orifices. Perhaps you yourself were incarcerated and had many unpleasant experiences which are now manifesting themselves in your choice of verbage.

The prime time star of MSNBC is Keith Olbermann and that is to whom I was referring. I am aware they also have conservatives on MSNBC, although I don't think much of them, or of anything on that channel.

jpm100:

Everyday he's alive he'll do everything possible to continue the circus. I mean almost five years after the fact we have a verdict. Now that verdict is life. For how long will his appeals go on.

If you're just simply against the death penalty under any circumstance, then say so. I can respect that. But rationalizing not giving him the death penalty be'll be a martyr or he's better off rotting in some hole.

Who needs martyrs when your enemy will let you live. People like Moussoaui believe one day the US will be taken down, perhaps in his lifetime. So giving him life is giving him hope. How easier will it be to recruit when you the prospect is (a) certain death as a martyr or (b) several years in a prison until we liberate you as a living hero.

Secondly, he won't be rotting in some hole. He'll be eating three squares, medical care, have a bed and his prayer rug. And if death was better than rotting in some hole, lifers would commit suicide. They generally don't.

And every day he's alive is another day he could actually walk. Yetanotherjohn made a good point. What if Al Queda grabs some hostages and will swap them for Moussoaui. Depending who's president, he may be set free. Wouldn't that be the biggest victory of all for Al Queda.

Yes, he is such a great media personality that he constantly ranks last in the ratings. Must be that so many people, unlike your enlightened liberal self, don't want to accept reality.

My point was that Moussaoui should not be able to enjoy pro-jihad news channels. I mentioned MSNBC largely as a point of of sarcasm. I said nothing of the accuracy or inaccuracy, although much of Olbermann's crack reporting can be demonstrated by the Ohio recount non-story he ridiculously followed for 2 months.

I agree that reality has a liberal bias (for them), but unfortunately liberals live in their own reality far divorced from the real world.

"vommunicate" was a typo but actually turns out to be an apt term for what I've seen you post on previous occasions.

While you may have tired of Keith's Ohio coverage for 2 mos. ( I think I got a bit weary of that myself) he generally follows stories that are rarely covered or that often get 4 seconds of a sound byte anywhere else.

I just get a little tired of some of you peeps slamming any news that doesn't square w/ your bias.

I think you can take a look at Media Matters and you will see that Fox & most of the alleged MSM fail miserably to get their coverage right.

I find Olberman & Dobbs to be the best we have available on TV when it comes to newsstory development & backgrounding.

Joe:

jpm100: When a prisoner goes to a supermax there is no way for the individual to continue the circus. There are no news conferences. The ONLY people from the outside they see is a lawyer. Period. They go into twilight zone. You think its a picnic? Try this: Pick your smallest bedroom. Wall it off to 6x10ft. Lock youself in 23 hours per day. When you go mad, lock yourself in 24 hours per day. Make sure you have someone play a tape of people yelling and screaming at random minutes 24 hours per day. Sure they have 3 squares and a prayer....rug. Free medical care. That's to make it humane. Kill 'em with kindness. When they bash their face on the concrete, patch 'em up, drug 'em, and put them in the padded cell where there is no tv or radio until they return to what passes as sanity, then send 'em back to the other box. Yep, its a real picnic. You should try it. Martyrs need visibility, and from him there will be none. Thats why there is a supermax. Thats why I call it justice. (Truth in advertising. I get this second hand from a relative who retired as an assistant warden after 30 yrs with the Federal Pen. System. Leavenworth, Marion, and Atlanta (among others) were on his resume.)

The death penalty would have been too good for him. 3000 people are dead because of the likes of him. Killing him would have been too quick. It is far, far better this way. The perp should read Edgar Allen Poe's "Cask of Amontillado" to fully understand what has happened to him.

Saying that the jury spared Moussaoui's by

I could just as easily say that the jury spared his life because they are "fundamentalist right wing conservative christians", who dont believe in the death penalty because it's against their religious beliefs.

I think Massoaui played a insignificant role in the 9-11 tragedy and is being used as a scapegoat
by those on the right to build a smokescreen around the fact that President Bush still hasnt captured the real architect of 9-11-01 Osama bin Laden "dead or alive" as he put it in his fake macho terms.

Unless he is killed by a fellow prisoner, these are all words that will come back to haunt us. In ten, twenty years or so, some slick lawyer will start demanding more 'humane' treatment for him, more access to outside contact, more opportunites to be interviewed by reporters, the 'right' to publish his autobiography, etc...and eventually some judge will allow it to happen. Plus, in years to come, Westerners will be kidnapped and killed in attempts to trade him for the kidnapped.

Les,

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds," said Emerson -- but he was a moonbat, wasn't he? As were all of the writers listed in the canon of English literature: a bunch of stupid lefties.

I'll try to say it in your language, using a line from a movie you might have seen: "Give it a break, O'Neil. You don't have to be a prick every day of your life."

The French are not responding to the "plight" of this hapless schmuck; they're operating under the assumption, reinforced on a daily basis by the Bush adminstration since he was elected, that whatever America does is backwards, contrary to humanistic thinking, and ultimately idiotic.

This perception is increasing, of course, since the rule of the dolts continues here at home, and so it spreads throughout the world like a disease: the Bush flu. Your part is to insist that foreign perceptions have no effect on us, so long as Pat Robertson isn't calling down fire somewhere.

Which is yet another reason why he should not have been spared from the death penalty. It will only encourage more babbling 'outrage' from the 'international community' and U.N. fetishists.

Uh, no. I never said that. You are talking out of your ass here, as usual. In fact, I beleive it WILL have an effect on us; a detrimental one. Which is yet another reason why he shouldn't have been spared.

I'm glad he didn't get the dealth penalty. Life in prison for him is a fate worse than death. I hope they put him in the general population, too.
