Life as the "Underwear Bomber"
With an intimidating name such as the "Underwear Bomber," you must be one proud follower of whatever extremist religion you belong to. On Christmas Day, way back in 2009, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to bomb a Detroit plane with explosives in his undergarments. This unusual attack on American flight is mind-boggling. One almost wants to chuckle at the odd circumstances, but looking at the entirety of the situation, you can't help but to pause in shock. Abdulmutallab has shown no signs of hesitation or regret in recent court hearings, and this lack of remorse is what has led him to an unfortunate consequence: a life sentence in prison. The twenty-five year old is more than willing to share his opinions, proclaiming "Today is a day of victory." Abdulmutallab admitted that being a "holy warrior" made him "proud to kill in the name of God." These haunting words lay groundwork for the American skepticism on terrorism. Even the assigned defendant attorney was almost, disgusted, by her client's attitude, saying that the "defendant...never expressed doubt or regret or remorse."
