Zacarias Moussaoui may have had a lot to say during his trial and sentencing, but a federal judge says he will "die with a whimper."

Judge Leonie Brinkema sentenced him today to six life prison terms, without the possibility of parole.

Moussaoui is expected to spend the rest of his life at the federal maximum-security prison in Florence, Colorado.

The so-called "Supermax" facility houses some of the nation's most notorious criminals, including 1993 World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef, Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph, Unabomber Ted Kaczynski , and Oklahoma City conspirator Terry Nichols.

Brinkema says Moussaoui wanted to be a martyr, but instead, he'll be isolated and never heard from again.
