Second Shoe Bomber Sentenced to 13 Years

An accomplice of shoe bomber Richard Reid decided that he could not go through with being "a courier of death" and was sentenced in a British court to 13 years.

Saajid Badat faced up to 50 years if he had gone through with his plan to blow up a transatlantic flight from Amsterdam to the United States on 17 December 2001. He sent an e-mail to his family on 14 December stating that he changed his mind and he did not go through with the bombing. Badat claimed that his religion brought him to the brink of killing others, but it also brought him back to reject terrorism and become a religious teacher.
