Life or Death?

UPDATE at 4:40pm: On count one (Conspiracy to Commit Acts of Terrorism Transcending National Boundaries), count three (Conspiracy to Destroy Aircraft) and count four (Conspiracy to Use Weapons of Mass Destruction): sentenced to life in prison. No martyrdom for him!

The verdict is in...well, the jury sent a note to the judge stating that they had reached a verdict in the sentencing trial of Zacarias Moussaoui. It won't be long before we know what his fate will be. I have no problem with the death penalty, but this is a guy who wants the death penalty because it will make him a martyr to his cause and Al Qaeda. We shouldn't let him have his way on this one.
The verdict will be read at 4:30 p.m.(/2030 GMT) He will be sentenced Thursday at 10 a.m.(/1400 GMT).
