Second Terror Mistrial Hurts Bush Administration, Critics Say

By | April 16, 2008

Federal prosecutors again failed to win convictions for six Florida men on terror-related charges, as a deadlocked jury led a judge to declare a mistrial in the case Wednesday.

The men, part of a group dubbed the “Liberty City Seven,” were charged with planning an attack on Chicago’s Sears Tower following a 2006 FBI raid on a warehouse that served as their headquarters and “temple” in Liberty City, one of Miami’s poorest neighborhoods.

An earlier jury acquitted one man and deadlocked over counts against the other six in December.

Critics accused the Bush administration of “see[ing] terrorism under every rock,” and of essentially fabricating a major terror case against seven men using a paid informant. – abc
