He actually thought that he was going to get the death penalty.Here's an ATt Worldnet story.

Then it was probably a mistake for him to say that he was involved in 9/11 in the first place right?
Stunned that he was sentenced to life in prison rather than execution, Zacarias Moussaoui now believes he could get a fair trial from an American jury. Too late, the judge says.
U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema quickly rejected a motion the confessed al-Qaida conspirator filed Monday to withdraw his guilty plea and get a new trial.
Convicted September 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui on Friday appealed the life sentence he received earlier this month and a federal judge's denial of his request for a new trial.
In a one-paragraph statement, Moussaoui's lawyers said he wanted the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to review the final judgment and sentence issued on May 4 and a court ruling denying his request to withdraw his guilty plea and set a new trial.
Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema denied Moussaoui's request to withdraw the plea.
