Human kind cannot bear very much reality, and CNN can’t bear the naked truth of Moussaoui crowing about his victory without reminding us that, poor dear, he’s depraved on account-a he was deprived. Note the video link in parentheses that follows, in a bizarre non-sequitur, the quote from Moussaoui:
“America, you lost,” Moussaoui taunted, clapping his hands as he left the courtroom. “I won.” (Watch how Moussaoui grew up surrounded by pain — 3:07)
Why is it a victory? Because, as I said below, he can spend his life recruiting for jihad. But, but, you will say, if he had been executed, he would have been a martyr. Not so! In fact, Paradise is promised only to those who “slay and are slain” for Allah (Qur’an 9:111), not to those who die an ignominious death at the hands of Infidel corrections officers.
