Zazi pleads guilty to terrorism charges

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/zazi_pleads_guilty_to_terrorism_charges_20100222/

Big development in the terrorism case against Najibullah Zazi. He pleaded guilty this afternoon in New York. From the AP, via The Washington Post:

The 25-year-old former Denver airport shuttle driver also pleaded guilty Monday to counts of conspiracy to commit murder in a foreign country and providing material support for a terrorist organization.

He faces a life prison sentence without parole in the plea deal.

He was arrested in the fall after arousing authorities’ suspicions by driving cross-country from Denver to New York around the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Authorities say he received al-Qaida training in Pakistan, bought beauty supplies in Colorado and tried to use them to cook up homemade bombs in a Colorado hotel room.
