Most al Qaeda members want to avoid Guantanamo Bay detention center, Cuba. Zacarias Moussaoui wants to go there.

The Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack’s “20th hijacker” filed a letter in Miami federal court requesting the transfer, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

Moussaoui plead guilty in 2005 for conspiring to kill Americans and is currently serving a life prison sentence in Florence, Colorado, for his role in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which claimed 2,753 victims.

In addition to the Guantanamo Bay transfer, the al Qaeda terrorist requested Senior U.S. District Judge James Lawrence King to order prison officials to allow him a hernia operation, AP reported.
