US Convicts Bin Laden’s Senior Advisor on Terror Charges

Printer-Ready Page Layout

The most senior adviser of Bin Laden to be tried in a U.S. civilian court has been found guilty of conspiring to murder Americans and aid terrorists.

Osama Bin Laden’s senior adviser Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, was convicted on Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans and providing support to terrorists.

He is the most senior adviser to Laden to be tried in a civilian United States court since 9/11.

Abu Ghaith, age 48 and a native of Kuwait, praised the 2001 aerial attacks and promised more.

He told the court last week that he met Bin Laden at his hideout case in Afghanistan the night after 9/11 at Bin Laden’s initiative. Bin Laden told him, “Come in; sit down. Did you learn about what happened?” and then asked Abu Gaith to “deliver a message to the world” the next day.

In one of his speeches following the terrorist attacks, Abu Gaith said, “The storm of airplanes will not abate” and that thousands of Muslims are prepared to die “just as the Americans yearn to live.”

The jury deliberated only two days before returning to the court with a guilty verdict on three counts of conspiracy to murder Americans, providing material support to terrorists and for conspiring to provide support.

He faces a maximum sentence of life plus 30 years in jail.
