Detroit bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab defended the 9/11 terror attacks on New York, saying they were justified by American military activity.

The 23-year-old suspect in the attempted Christmas Day bombing [2] of Northwest Flight 253 is reported to have shocked friends with his hardline views as far back as 2001.
