Underwear Bomber Pleads Guilty

Underwear Bomber Pleads Guilty

The accused underwear bomber pleaded guilty Wednesday to eight criminal charges, including conspiring to commit an act of terrorism, in his second day of trial.

According to USA Today, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab read from a statement saying he was guilty under U.S. law, but not under Islamic law, of the charges. He said that his actions were in retaliation against the United States for the murder of innocent civilians in Afghanistan, Somalia, Israel and elsewhere.

The would-be suicide bomber said in his statement to a U.S. District Court in Detroit that he was not sorry because committing jihad against the United States is one of “the most virtuous acts” a Muslim can perform, according to reports. He also reportedly warned his audience that if the U.S. continues its Mideast occupation, a calamity will befall the country.

INFOWARS.COM published a story discrediting Abdulmutallab’s plea, saying he was originally scheduled to plead innocent and call to the stand Kurt Haskell, who was also a passenger on Delta Flight 253. Haskell was prepared to testify that he had seen a suited man ask ticket agents whether Abdulmutallab could board the plane without a passport, according to a report on MLive.com.

The INFOWARS.COM article reads: “Abdulmutallab’s reversal now means that Detroit Attorney Kurt Haskell’s contention that the plot was, as in almost every other terror case made public, a product of government entrapment, and that the US intelligence establishment was involved in the aborted attack, will now remain buried, at least for the time being.”
