Guilty and 100 times more

Apparently Faisal Shahzad is making it easy for the American court system–and, ironically, validating the notion that American citizens who commit crimes of terror are CRIMINALS and not soldiers or “enemy combatants” (whatever that means).  The would-be Times Square bomber pleaded “guilty and 100 times more” to several counts in a Manhattan court today and made it abundantly clear that he was acting in the name of Islam.  Many of the counts against him carry mandatory life sentences, so it’s a certainty that Shahzad will never again be a free man.  What I’d like to know is…why do we have to wait FIVE MONTHS before the judge sentences him?
