Ex-al-Qaida spokesman recalls 9/11 with bin Laden

In this courtroom sketch, Osama bin Laden's son-in-law Sulaiman Abu
Ghaith, right, testifies at his trial Wednesday, March 19, 2014, in New
York, on charges he conspired to kill Americans and aid al-Qaida as a
spokesman for the terrorist group. Listening to testimony are Judge
Lewis Kaplan, center, and defense attorney Stanley Cohen, at podium. In
his surprise testimony, Abu Ghaith recounted the night of the Sept. 11,
2001, attacks, when the al-Qaida leader sent a messenger to drive him
into a mountainous area for a meeting inside a cave in Afghanistan. "Did
you learn what happened? We are the ones who did it," Abu Ghaith,
recalled bin Laden telling him. (AP Photo/Elizabeth Williams)
