No Place On Earth

"There is no place on this earth for Zacarias Moussaoui," David Raskin, a federal prosecutor, told the jurors, saying they should order his execution to "put an end to his hatred and venom." (NYT 24/4/06).

Jeez, I naively thought one the main aims of the War On Terror was to rid the world of the sort of mindset that proclaims there's no place on this earth for people who are beyond the pale in one way or another, whether it's because (like me or like Raskin) we're Western Heathen Scum or, more troublingly, for no reason at all, just because it's Written or it feels right....
