An Ohio truck driver has pleaded guilty to helping terrorists. And authorities say the man, who has ties to Al-Qaida, was involved in plots to blow up an aircraft and to sabotage the Brooklyn Bridge. Ohio Department of Public Safety spokesman Jeff Grayson says there were never any specific threats to Ohio. According to documents unsealed today, Iyman Faris pleaded guilty last month to providing material support to terrorist, and conspiracy to provide support. Farris is from Columbus. He is believed to have received instruction directly from Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
