2005: Zacarias Moussaoui pleads guilty in federal court to conspiring to kill American citizens as part of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. About a year later he would be sentenced to six consecutive life terms in prison. Moussaoui had been in the country taking flight training and was arrested less than a month before the attacks took place.
