That’s what Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri, late of Qatar and landed upon these shores on 10 September 2001 as a sleeper agent for further al Qaeda attacks on US soil got for his crimes, along with time served:
According to the plea agreement, Mr. Marri said he had been ordered by Mr. (Khalid Sheik) Mohammed “to enter the United States no later than Sept. 10, 2001” and await instructions. Mr. Marri, a native of Qatar, did so, arriving with his wife and five children on Sept. 10 and enrolling at Bradley University in Peoria, where he had studied during an earlier stay. In that time, he “researched online information related to various cyanide compounds” and communicated in code with other Qaeda operatives…
In eight minutes of tearful testimony on Thursday, Mr. Marri told the judge he was sorry that he had helped Al Qaeda, and no longer wished harm to the American people. He said he had been punished in many ways while in prison, and mentioned missing the first words of his youngest child.
Neither Christine Hanson, age 2, David Brandhorst (3), Juliana McCourt (4), Bernard Brown (11), Asia Cottom (11), Rodney Dickens (11), Dana Falkenberg (3), or Zoe Falkenberg (8) could be reached for comment.
Gen pop, I’m thinking.
And after that?
