US convicts would be terrorist of plotting to blow up NYC subway

This is a nice follow up to that British anti-terror raid story from this morning.

NEW YORK - A Pakistani immigrant was convicted Wednesday of charges he plotted to blow up one of Manhattan's busiest subway stations in retaliation for the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.

A federal jury in Brooklyn deliberated two days before convicting Shahawar Matin Siraj of conspiracy and other charges. He faces up to life in prison.

In retaliation for Abu Ghraib, huh? He must really be offended by naked dude pyramids and sheets over his head...

By the way... good work New Yorkers. Now sentence him to life and throw away the key.
