The 9/11 events being memorialized on Sunday, ten years after they shook the world, didn't take place in Colorado. But our state has no shortage of connections to terrorists -- and not only because plenty of them are housed at Florence's Supermax facility.

10. Zacarias Moussaoui.
Often referred to as the twentieth hijacker, Moussaoui was accused of having been a replacement for any of the nineteen participants in the 9/11 attacks who could not fulfill their lethal duties. The French citizen was convicted of conspiracy, sentenced to life without parole, and sent to Supermax.
