Disgraced ex-Illinois governor Rod "Blago" Blagojevich isn't the only infamous convict likely to be Colorado bound. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, dubbed the Underwear Bomber after a failed attempt to blow up a Detroit-bound airplane on Christmas 2009, has been sentenced to life in prison, and he's widely expected to do his time at ADX Florence, aka Supermax.

There, he'll instantly become one of the ten most notorious inmates at the facility, known for housing the worst of the worst. Below, see our countdown of the other nine, along with a brief summary of their heinous deeds.

9. 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.

It's chilling to think a soccer game takes precedent over WWIII.

Oh course this is that jerk off Micheal Robbert´s story. Nice to see you got that law enforcement dick out of your mouth in time to write a pro governmet piece of propaganda. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdXas-q4YmQ Torturing people is cool if the state does it right?

Not really. Once a prisoner is behind bars, it doesn't matter much to me why they are there.

Wow,

Remember when that foreign policy guru liz cheney predicted that trying this kid in a U.S. court would be "disastrous"?

That using the court system the way it's intended to be used would fail us?

How liz railed that this President would weaken the security of the nation if we legally prosecuted him?

Like her dad, all hat, no cattle.
