Both sides give summations in NYC terror trial
Both sides sum up in NYC terror case, defense says it's not as clear-cut as govt claims
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Both sides are winding down at the trial of a man accused of plotting to attack New York's subways with suicide bombs.

Prosecutor Berit (BEHR'-iht) Berger told Brooklyn jurors Thursday that Adis Medunjanin (may-DOON'-yah-neen) agreed with two others in the summer of 2008 to go to Afghanistan, join the Taliban and fight Americans.

She said he then came back to America determined to be a suicide bomber.

Defense lawyer Robert Gottlieb says the trial has brought people's "worst fears" to the surface. But he says the case is not as clear-cut as the government claims.

Medunjanin is charged with becoming an al-Qaida operative. Prosecutors say he discussed bombing movie theaters, Grand Central Terminal, Times Square and the New York Stock Exchange before settling on the city's subways.
