Shoe Bomb Conspirator Turns State's Evidence, Sentence Reduced

I'm conflicted: on the one hand, this guy conspired with Richard Reid to blow up an airplane! On the other hand, now he's going to testify against Adis Medunjanin, who's being tried in NYC as we speak (see below).

So, worst case scenario is that Saajid Badat gets out of a British jail early while a guy who threatened America gets a longer sentence.

Yeah, I can live with that. My apologies to British readers, but this appears to be a zero sum game: our win is your loss. That kinda sucks, no?
