The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Moussaoui proudly shows no remorse

The Seattle Times: Nation & World: Moussaoui proudly shows no remorse: "Zacarias Moussaoui proudly reaffirmed his involvement in the Sept. 11 terrorist plot Thursday and said his only regret was that more Americans didn't die.

Taking the stand for the second time at his death-penalty trial, Moussaoui calmly and matter-of-factly said the sobbing Sept. 11 survivors and family members who testified against him were 'disgusting,' the testimony of one man who crawled out of his burning Pentagon office was 'pathetic,' and executed Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh is 'the greatest American.'

His cool demeanor was on display throughout his cross-examination. Moussaoui laughed when Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Spencer asked if he thought the United States was destined to fall. 'I know it,' he said. He stared at Spencer as the prosecutor inquired: 'You wake up every day to destroy the United States, don't you?'

'To the best of my ability,' Moussaoui responded."

He'll be killed. Good. I still think a public hanging is the best way, but we won't. Another good punishment is to stick him by an airport security line, and have everyone slap him after they wait in line for two hours.
Then kill him.

May God have mercy on his soul.

I like the slapping idea. :) But it would be ruled "cruel and unusual punishment" and he'd be played up as some kind of hero by the media.

Yes, that would happen.

Acctually, I was quite pleased with the coverage of the final verdict by ABC news yesterday. Not anti-american, for a change of pace.

Welcome back, btw.

I do hope they execute him.

I think he will be exectuted. The question is how long. It had better not be the 15 year wait period.
