Bomb-maker in NYC subway plot testifies
Would-be NYC suicide bomber: Top al-Qaida operative suggested terror attack in US
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The admitted mastermind of a foiled suicide attack on the New York City subways says he grew to believe that the culprit behind the 9/11 attacks was "America itself."

Najibullah Zazi (nah-jee-BOO'-lah ZAH'-zee) testified Tuesday at the Brooklyn trial of Adis Medunjanin (ah-DEES' med-DOON'-yah-neen).

The government says they and a third man ' all former classmates from Queens ' came close to carrying out the 2009 subway attack.

The other man, Zarein Ahmedzay (zah-RAYN' ah-MIHD'-zay), testified Monday.

He and Zazi pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against Medunjanin in a bid for leniency.

Medunjanin's lawyer insists his client is not a terrorist.

The trial is scheduled to resume Wednesday in federal court.
