Guantanamo detainee goes on trial in NY court
NEW YORK â€“ A man accused of helping to build aÂ truckÂ bomb used in a 1998 terror attack on a U.S. embassy was a member of an al-Qaida cell that was determined to kill Americans, a federal prosecutor told jurors Tuesday, but a defense lawyer said the Tanzanian man was duped.
Prosecutors were going forward without their top witness after Kaplan ruled last week that the government couldn’t use him. The judge found that theÂ man’sÂ testimony that he sold explosives to Ghailani must be excluded from the trial because the government only learned about him after Ghailani was interrogated at a secret overseas CIA camp where harsh interrogations occurred.
