triple jeopardy: US vs liberty city 7 (minus 1)from washington post: Federal prosecutors announced Wednesday that they will try for the third time to convict six men accused of plotting to blow up Chicago’s Sears Tower and attack other buildings. “The United States has decided it’s necessary to proceed, your honor, one more time to a jury,” prosecuting attorney Richard Gregorie told U.S. District Judge Joan A. Lenard at a hearing.

In arguing for a new trial, Gregorie pointed to taped conversations obtained by the FBI in which the leader of the “Liberty City Seven,” Narseal Batiste, made threatening comments about citizens of the United States. “In referring to Americans, Mr. Batiste said he wanted to kill all the devils,” Gregorie told the judge.
