Krauthammer: Right verdict, wrong reasons

Charles Krauthammer on the Moussaoui sentence: Sparing Moussaoui for the Wrong Reasons.

The Moussaoui verdict came out right, but the process was atrocious. The jury's list of mitigating factors was risible. And the entire process was farcical, a 4 1/2 -year charade manipulated by a self-declared terrorist gratuitously given a world platform by those he was working to destroy. We need no more lessons in the obvious: Civilian court -- with civilian procedures, civilian juries and civilian sensibilities -- is not the place for those who make war upon us.
'Nuff said.
