More U.S. jihad plot news. “B’klyn Man Confessed to Plot: Feds,” from the New York Post:
November 10, 2005 — A Pakistani man living in Brooklyn confessed in “chilling detail” how he tried to sneak an al Qaeda operative into the U.S. to carry out a deadly chemical attack, a prosecutor charged in opening statements yesterday.
Jurors in Manhattan federal court heard how Uzair Paracha, 25, allegedly agreed to further the terror plot during a series of meetings in Pakistan attended by two al Qaeda members and his father, a businessman now held prisoner at Guantanamo Bay.
“This trial is about the defendant’s role in helping al Qaeda penetrate this country and attack the United States from within its own borders,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Bruce….
After his arrest in March 2003, Paracha confessed to helping al Qaeda operative Majid Khan in a scheme to obtain U.S. travel documents “knowing full well that he was plotting a terrorist attack,” Bruce said.
