No death penalty for suspect in bombings of U.S. embassies

"The Tanzanian national indicted in the 1998 terrorist bombings of the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania will not face the possibility of the death penalty, according to a letter issued by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday. Holder's letter directed U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara "not to seek the death penalty" against Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani. CNN obtained the letter from the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. . . . The nearly simultaneous bombings of the U.S. embassies in Nairobi, Kenya; and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in 1998 killed 224 people, including 12 Americans."


This man bombed two U.S. embassies and killed 224 people, including 12 Americans.

The Obama administration will not seek the death penalty.

What does a terrorist have to do to deserve the death penalty?
