DETROIT (AP) — Calling it a "just punishment," a federal judge ordered life in prison Thursday for a Nigerian man who turned away from a privileged life and tried to blow up an international jetliner with nearly 300 people during a suicide mission for al-Qaida.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was the same defiant man who four months ago pleaded guilty to all charges related to the attempted destruction of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 with a bomb in his underwear on Christmas 2009. He seemed to relish his mandatory sentence and defended his actions as rooted in the Muslim holy book, the Quran.

Earlier, four passengers and a crew member aboard Flight 253 told U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds that the event forever changed their lives. Abdulmutallab looked disinterested during their remarks — he rarely looked up while seated just a few feet away, wearing a white skull cap and an oversized prison T-shirt.

Abdulmutallab "has never expressed doubt or regret or remorse about his mission," Edmunds said. "In contrast, he sees that mission as divinely inspired and a continuing mission."
Life in prison is a "just punishment for what he has done," the judge said. "The defendant poses a significant ongoing threat to the safety of American citizens everywhere."

You see what Liberals do? Blame Eric Holder for this. Terrorist are part of the Enemy in war. They are the soldiers of Al Queda. The only answer is military tribune. Look Hitlers men were never lawyered up and tried in civilian courts. What rights did Hitlers men got? RIGHT NONE!!! They never had rights to a lawyer and they wwre tried by the U.S Military. Liberals think Terrorist have rights just like every American has. What Rights do Iranian government give us if were arrested there? What Rights do North Korean government give us if were arrested there? And What Rights do Chinese government give us if were arrested there? So why should terrorist like Abdulmutallab, Zacarias Moussaoui and Richard Reid get rights and we dont? Answer these questions and you see how unfair the answers are

And BTW Nidal Malik Hasan is the only one tried in Military court. HILLARY CLINTON WAS RIGHT!!! OBAMA IS UNFIT FOR COMMANDER IN CHIEF.
