Osama bin Laden Wanted 9/11 Follow-Up, According to Testimony

A British man who trained to be a shoe bomber a decade ago says Osama bin Laden told him after the Sept. 11 attacks that he hoped a follow-up terrorism attack would collapse the American economy.

The videotaped testimony came Monday from Saajid Badat, a man convicted in London in a 2001 plot to down an American Airlines flight from Paris to Miami with explosives hidden in his shoes. Badat was testifying at the federal trial of a man accused in the 2009 plot to attack New York’s subways with suicide bombs.

Badat says the al-Qaida founder told him the shoe plot could ruin the aviation industry. He says bin Laden said the American economy was like a chain and that breaking one link could down the whole economy.
