Feds: US man gave al-Qaida NYC subway information

An American man charged with giving al-Qaida information on the New York transit system and attacking a US military base in Afghanistan has been a secret witness in the fight against terror here and overseas, authorities revealed Wednesday.


His revelations have given counterterrorism investigators a rare look at the day-to-day operations of al-Qaida from meetings of top terror officials to training with explosives - in the lawless region bordering Pakistan, which the US military has struggled to penetrate, people familiar with the case said.
