    Mr. Zazi has entered a guilty plea to three counts and is cooperating with investigators- all without torture. The judge has sealed the plea agreement, so we don't know all of the details as of yet.

    I hope you realize he faces stiff penalties. I read the transcript of the court hearing, and the defendant faces a Federal Advisory Sentencing Guideline range of life in prison, lifetime supervised release if he ever gets out, a $250,000 fine and a $100 special assessment for count one of the superseding information; 360 months to life, lifetime supervised release if he ever gets out, a $250,000 fine and a $100 special assessment for count two; and 15 years in prison, lifetime supervised release if he ever gets out, a $250,000 fine and a $100 special assessment for count three. The foregoing, however, may be modified by the plea agreement.

    '
    Zazi himself will be entitled to credit for having "cooperated" with the government. As a result of his cooperation the judge will not be bound by the mandatory mininum sentences set forth in the sentencing guidelines. Since his cooperation is supposed to be considered in sentencing, it is likely he will receive a reduced sentence. In addition, he pled to lesser charges than might have been the case, as part of the plea agreement with the government."


    "We will never know whether Zazi had further information that he did not reveal. If he had been subject to interrogation in Gitmo by U.S. personnel trained to question enemy combatants in an effort to get out information to be used at a time of war, perhaps more information would have come out."

    Media Matters is spouting this as a good thing just like young Paul here. The level of chosen ignorance is astounding
