Trial http://kcur.org/post/convention-convicted-terrorists-ny-trial There have been hundreds of terrorism trials in the U.S. since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001,<strong></strong> but the case unfolding in Brooklyn,<strong> </strong>N.Y., is different. While its focus is on defendant Adis Medunjanin and the role he allegedly played in a 2009 plot to bomb New York City subways, the trial itself breaks new ground. It marks the first time the public is hearing in open court about real al-Qaida plots from the people the terrorist group actually dispatched to carry them out.<p>Medunjanin is a beefy naturalized American of Bosnian descent.
