For Once, Bush Will Do The Right Thing Here

With all our disagreements with George Bush, I’ve finally found one situation in which I’m actually confident he’ll make the right decision. Zacarias Moussaoui has taken the stand in the sentencing portion of this trial, with the death penalty under consideration. Moussaoui, who previously had denied involvement with the 9/11 attacks, now admits that he originally planned to be on a fifth plan which would crash into the White House. His only regret is that more Americans didn’t die. He was asked, “you would do it again tomorrow if you could, wouldn’t you?” His response was “Today.” Conservatives (and Joe Klein) who make baseless claims that liberals hate America should read Moussaoui’s testimony to see what someone who really hates America believes.

This is hardly the sort of testimony you’d expect from someone facing the death penalty. Moussaoui says he believes George Bush will free him as part of a prisoner exchange. I think its a pretty safe bet that George Bush won’t let this guy go free (and nor would any other American President).
