NEW YORK (AP) - A senior al-Qaida leader and son-in-law of Osama bin Laden has pleaded not guilty to plotting against Americans in his role as the terror network's spokesman.
Sulaiman Abu Ghaith entered the plea through a lawyer to one count of conspiracy to kill Americans in federal court in New York on Friday.
Prosecutors say Abu Ghaith praised the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and warned there would be more.
Abu Ghaith was born in Kuwait. Authorities say he was captured in Jordan over the last week.
President Barack Obama's administration has sought to charge senior al-Qaida suspects in American federal courts instead of military tribunals, but Republicans in Congress don't want high-threat terror suspects brought into the United States.
