Remember all the fuss about the New York terror trials?

NEW YORK – The first civilian trial of a Guantanamo detainee nears an end in New York, weeks ahead of schedule.

Closing arguments are set to begin Monday in the trial of Ahmed Ghailani (guh-LAHN'-ee).

The Manhattan federal jury was told last month that the trial might last up to six months. But prosecutors last week finished presenting their evidence that Ghailani helped construct bombs used to blow up two U.S. embassies in Africa in August 1998. The bombings killed 224 people, including a dozen Americans.

Ghailani's lawyers called no witnesses and Ghailani did not testify.

The 36-year-old Tanzanian has pleaded not guilty and maintained he did not know the attacks were going to happen. Four others already have been convicted in the bombings and are serving life sentences.

  • Of course we haven't heard about it. The Government didn't want anything to worsen their loss on Nov 2nd. This is a hot button issue for ALL Americans. They don't want to go through that again.

  • Think woman...the more publicity, the more nutcases will be trying to create drama concerning this. I'm please to know it's going well. So what was the supposed security tag, and what has it ended up being?

    No kidding, so ask Rudy why HE WAS POLITICING AND PUBLICIZING when if they ALL would have just let them do AS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO...it would have been a NON ISSUE
