British shoe-bomber recalls brainstorming targets

NEW YORK (AP) — A British shoe-bomber testifying for a second time by video in a New York courtroom revealed terror targets against the U.S. and England that were discussed at al-Qaida brainstorming sessions.

Saajid Badat (SAH'-jeed buh-DAHT') completed two days of testimony Tuesday at the trial of an Egyptian cleric who became a central extremist Islamic figure in London in the late 1990s. Just a month after testifying at the trial of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law, Badat was filmed in the United Kingdom as he answered questions from a U.S. prosecutor and a defense lawyer.

Badat testified that Khalid Sheik Mohammed — the self-professed architect of the Sept. 11 attacks — said in 2001 they should consider attacking the West Coast of the United States or the Canary Wharf financial district in London.
