Abu Gaith, Bin Laden’s Son-in-Law, is Convicted in Terror Trial

The New York Times reports on the conviction of Sulaiman Abu Gaith, a senior advisor and son-in-law to Osama bin Laden. He was charged with conspiring to kill Americans, for which he could face life in prison, and providing material support to terrorists. In a statement, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said, “It was appropriate that this defendant, who publicly rejoiced over the attacks on the World Trade Center, faced trial in the shadow of where those buildings once stood. This outcome vindicates the government’s approach to securing convictions against not only this particular defendant, but also other senior leaders of Al Qaeda.”
