A propagandist for Osama bin Laden who vowed to fight anyone who governs America faced a possible life sentence after being convicted of making videos that encouraged al-Qaida members to commit terrorist attacks, the Associated Press reported.
Ali Hamza al-Bahlul was found guilty of 35 counts of conspiracy, solicitation to commit murder and providing material support to terrorism.
The 39-year-old Yemeni sat calmly and showed no emotion as the verdict was read, but later defiantly admitted being a member of al-Qaida and said the U.S. had oppressed Muslims for 50 years.
The jury dismissed one count of conspiracy and one count of providing material support for terrorism.
The lead prosecutor, Army Maj. Daniel Cowhig, urged the jury of military officers on Monday to sentence al-Bahlul to life.
