Terror on trial

I think a lot of people may have forgotten about this but America is actually trying a terror suspect in a regular courtroom and so far nothing crazy has happened. On Christmas day 2009 police say that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab tried to blow up a flight heading towards Detroit-Metro Airport with a bomb inside of his underwear. After initially pleading guilty to those charges,Abdulmutallab decided to withdraw that guilty plea and represent himself at his terror trial. This terror trial happens to be the most high profile terrorism case in the United States since 9/11/2001. The trial will feature tons of eyewitnesses,forensics and physical evidence from the government as they make their case as to why they think that Mr. Abdulmutallab should be put away for a long time. In his defense Mr. Abdulmutallab will bring one witness,a Troy,Michigan lawyer who says that the government actually conspired to frame Abdulmutallab in an effort to make themselves look better.
