Jury convicts Ghailani on single count in embassy bombings

Tanzanian-born Ahmed Ghailani, 36, who had always claimed he was duped into buying a truck and components for explosives used in the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa, was acquitted of the bulk of the charges against him. But the lone conviction on a conspiracy charge is enough to send him to prison for 20 years to life — but that won't quiet opponents of civilian trials for accused terrorists.
