The Washington Post: A Top Al-Qaeda Operative Is About To Be Sentenced For Killing U.S. Troops 15 Years Ago In Afghanistan

“A senior al-Qaeda member is set to be sentenced Friday in a Brooklyn court for conspiring to kill two American service members 15 years ago in Afghanistan and later plotting to bomb the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria. Ibrahim Suleiman Adnan Adam Harun, or Spin Ghul as he was known to fellow militants, faces life in prison. His conviction on terrorism charges in March is the first of 30 secured by federal prosecutors since President Trump took office. But the case highlights a predicament for the administration. The federal court system, which Attorney General Jeff Sessions has criticized as being too lenient with terrorists captured overseas, is far more efficient than the military tribunals run out of Guantanamo Bay. Since Sept. 11, 2001, federal prosecutors have used civilian courts to bring more than 500 international terrorism cases, obtaining convictions in more than 400 to date, according to Fordham University’s Center on National Security. Most of the others are pending. None of the alleged 9/11 conspirators, who were indicted in 2009 and remain at Guantanamo, has been tried. The earliest that might happen is 2019.”

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
