Underwear Bomber Avoids More Restrictive Supermax Prison in Colo.

DETROIT — The young man who will be forever known as the “Underwear Bomber” caught a little bit of break.

The Detroit News reports that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who admitted trying to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane on Christmas Day of 2009, was transferred Tuesday to a federal prison complex in Florence, Colo.  There he’ll be housed in a maximum-security facility, but not the Supermax prison reserved for the worst of the worst, which has far more restrictions when it comes to visits and contact with the outside world.

The Supermax prison, aka the “Alcatraz of the Rockies”, houses such notables as Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, Oklahoma bomber Terry Nichols and some al Qaeda terrorists.

“I’m glad he’s not in Supermax,” Abdulmutallab legal adviser Anthony Chambers told the News. “Not being in Supermax will have its benefits.”
