From Los Angeles Times, May 31, 2001:

A federal prosecutor urged jurors on Wednesday to impose the death penalty on a convicted terrorist [for] participating in the bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, that killed 213 people… [Defense lawyer David] Baugh sought to present his client as representing a larger cause and America as a villain in the eyes of many people. “Why [are] so many young people… willing to kill themselves to strike America? Why [do] [Osama] bin Laden and al Qaeda have more young people willing to die than projects they can do?”… He said he also would zero in on U.S. policy toward Iraq and the assertion that since 1991 as many as 1.5 million Iraqis have died as a result of the sanctions and other U.S.-backed actions.
