He wanted him dead

Speaking of people who won't say what they mean, George Bush has issued a statement on the decision of a federal jury to sentence Zacarias Moussaoui -- who had clearly lied on the stand about his role in the 9/11 attacks -- to life in prison, and not death:

One year ago, Zacarias Moussaoui pled guilty in federal court to six counts of terrorism, including conspiracy to murder innocent Americans. He openly rejoiced at their deaths. This afternoon, the jurors in his sentencing trial concluded that this man should spend the rest of his life in prison.

The rest of the statement is the usual GWOT cliches but is the part above meant to imply that the jurors were wrong?

UPDATE: Peggy Noonan wanted him dead too. Roger Ailes, with some necessary rudeness, summarises.
