The Final Verdict
The Final Verdict

A French citizen, Zacarias Moussaoui, 37, pleaded guilty last April to six counts of conspiring with al Qaeda in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The only person convicted in a U.S. case in connection with the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Moussaoui has said that al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden personally instructed him to fly an airplane into the White House. The convicted terrorist was arrested on immigration violations in mid-August 2001 and was in custody at the time of the attacks. On May 3, 2006 a jury decided that Moussaoui will spend the rest of life in prison for his role in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Al-Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui will spend the rest of his life in a maximum security prison for his role in the Sept. 11 attacks after a federal jury rejected the government's four-year quest to secure his execution for the deadliest terrorist strike on U.S. soil.
