NEW YORK | 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.
"This is Terrorism 101," Assistant U.S. Attorney Berit Berger said in closing arguments in federal court in Brooklyn. "The goal of this conspiracy was to kill as many people as possible."
