Underwear Bomber to Spend Life Behind Bars

The Christmas day underwear bomber, who luckily wasn't smart enough to light his own pants on fire in a proper way, was sentenced to life in prison yesterday by a judge.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the Nigerian who tried to bring down a U.S. commercial flight on Christmas Day 2009 by detonating a bomb hidden in his underwear, was sentenced to life in prison Thursday in federal court in Detroit.

U.S. District Court Judge Nancy G. Edmunds said life in prison is a “just punishment,” noting that “the defendant poses a significant ongoing threat to the safety of American citizens everywhere.”

As the flight from Amsterdam carrying 290 passengers and crew approached Detroit, Abdulmutallab tried to detonate the bomb, but it malfunctioned and sparked a small fire. Passengers quickly overpowered him, and the plane, already near the airport, accelerated its descent.

Yes you read that correctly, passangers stopped this guy, not the TSA. Next time you're in an airport naked scanner, you have this guy to thank.
