Moussaoui will spend the rest of his life in the Supermax prison, locked down 23 hours a day.
Christopher Boyce, a convicted spy who was incarcerated at Supermax, left the prison about 100 miles south of Denver with no regret. "You're slowly hung," he once told The Times. "You're ground down. You can barely keep your sanity."It sounds like a fate worse than death.
Bernard Kleinman, a New York lawyer who represented Yousef, called it "extraordinarily draconian punishment."
Moussaoui might be a household name today, "but 20 years from now, people will forget him," Kleinman said. "He will sit there all alone, and all forgotten."
