Bin Laden’s Driver Convicted
Osama bin Laden’s driver has been acquitted of conspiracy charges, but convicted of providing material support to terrorism.
Military jurors found Osama bin Laden’s former driver Salim Hamdan not guilty Wednesday on terrorist conspiracy charges but convicted him on the lesser charge of providing material support to terrorism.
The split verdict marked a dramatic conclusion of the first trial before the special tribunals created by President George W. Bush to try suspects in the “war on terror.”
Hamdan faces a possible maximum sentence of life in prison.
