As Anticipated, Zazi Pleads Guilty To Terrorism Charges


“I would sacrifice myself to bring attention to what the United States military was doing to civilians in Afghanistan by sacrificing my soul for the sake of saving other souls.” - Najibullah Zazi - discussing his bomb-making training in Pakistan in 2008 - in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn today, after pleading guilty to terrorism charges in what he described as an Al Qaeda plot to set off a bomb in the New York City subway last year. Zazi, 25, will face a possible life term when he is sentenced on June 25. [NYT]
