"Calling Muhammad a mastermind is stretching the point,Feeble mind is more accurate !"

A Virginia judge has set a Nov. 10 execution date for John Allen Muhammad, mastermind of the 2002 sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C., area. The attorney general's office had requested a Nov. 9 execution. But Muhammad's attorney Jonathan Sheldon says Prince William County Circuit Judge Mary Grace O'Brien delayed it one day. That's because Nov. 9 is a Monday and they want government offices to be open the day before in case of last-minute court action....snip

Muhammad was sentenced to death for the slaying of Dean Meyers, one of 10 people shot to death during a 2002 rampage that terrorized the Washington, D.C., area
