It should be made clear that Moussaoui wants to die a
martyr.  He will say anything he can to ensure that he
will be put to death.  The ultimate punishment would
be to give him life imprisonment, like Sirhan Sirhan
or Charles Manson.

As for living in a different world, I suggest you
consider the evil doers of the past: Hitler, Attila
the Hun, the Rape of Nan-king, etc.  Have the world
changed?  Or just how efficiently we can kill each
