Loreen Sellitto and Phyllis Rodriguez each lost a son when their workplace at Cantor Fitzgerald was destroyed along with the World Trade Center’s south tower.'
But execution would be “too good” for the quintet, said Sellitto, mother of Matthew, who was a 23-year-old rising star at the finance firm.
“I would be very comfortable knowing that these men have to spend the rest of their lives locked up and controlled for the rest of their lives by the country they tried to destroy,” said Sellitto, whose family has established a foundation in her son’s name that awards scholarships.
“I don’t think there would be any better hell for them than to be under our rule,” she added. “Death is too good.”
Rodriguez has a different reason for fighting the capital charges against KSM and his cronies. She believes the military court and the death penalty are violations of human rights. “What kind of society are we if we condone state-sanctioned murder?” asked Rodriguez, whose adventure-seeking son Greg, 31, worked in cybersecurity at the firm.
