Life sentence in NYC subway bomb plot

By Laura Batchelor

A Bosnian immigrant who authorities said came within days of carrying out a plot to bomb New York City's subway system was sentenced to life in prison on Friday.

Adis Medunjanin, 34, had been charged with conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction and conspiring to provide material support to al Qaeda. After authorities foiled the plot, he then attempted to crash his car and kill himself and others.

"Adis Medunjanin was today held accountable for his role in one of the most serious terrorist plots against the homeland since 9/11," said Assistant Attorney General Lisa Monaco.

    What about left wing B.S. that giving to an unsupportable takers society makes us a better country. For each taker that means one less giver. Greece, Spain and most of Europe are about broke trying to pay the takers. Yes there are people who need help. But that number is far less that the number on the dole.

    This man never had a chance anyway with the right-wing lynch mob mentality running rampant across the country these days! No wonder the Tea Party Movement is flourishing with all this ignorance but then again, that is proven here by all these nitwits spewing their right-wing mumbo-jumbo!!!
