Adis Medunjanin Convicted Of Plotting To Attack NYC Subways Bookmark and Share
clear

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) A New York man was convicted Tuesday of plotting an aborted suicide mission against New York City subways in 2009 — a case that featured the first-time testimony from admitted homegrown terrorists about al Qaeda’s fixation with pulling off another attack on American soil.

A jury found Adis Medunjanin guilty of all counts for his role in a terror plot that federal authorities say was one of the closest calls since Sept. 11, 2001.

There was no reaction from the defendant at the reading of the verdict. Medunjanin‘s family, refugees from Bosnia who’d literally been saved from persecution there by this country, also sat silently

Testifying against Medunjanin was Najibullah Zazi, the confessed ring leader and bomb maker, and Zarein Ahmedzay, the New York cabbie whose job was to pick out their terror targets. . . Prosecutors called half a dozen members of the NYPD’s Joint Terrorism Task Force to testify about the intense surveillance of the three men. Ironically, it was when Zazi, the ring leader, realized they were being followed and watched, that he abandoned the plot and fled back to Denver.

Ahmedzay said the group should carry out the operation during the month of Ramadan. . . Zazi testified that Medunjanin shared his views back then that “America is oppressing Muslims in Afghanistan” and that it was their duty to join the jihad and kill Americans.

Medunjanin could receive life in prison. Sentencing is set for Sept. 7.
