A New York man pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to charges including conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction in the foiled New York City subway bomb plot from fall 2009. Zarein Ahmedzay said that al-Qaida leaders ordered the plan while he was in Pakistan with a friend two years ago. "They told us we would be more useful if we returned to New York City ... to conduct operations," he said. Asked by the judge what kind of operations, he responded, "Suicide bombing operations."
