MIAMI, May 18 — Despite vigorous defense efforts to bar his testimony, a cooperating witness in the case against Jose Padilla was allowed on Friday to describe a Qaeda training camp that prosecutors say Mr. Padilla attended.
The witness, Yahya Goba, said the “mujahedeen data form” that Mr. Padilla is charged with filling out in 2000 was identical to one Mr. Goba filled out after reaching Al Farooq camp, near Kandahar, Afghanistan, in 2001.
Mr. Goba, a Yemeni-American who was among the six men from Lackawanna, N.Y., who pleaded guilty to attending a terrorist training camp, described how with the help of a Qaeda associate, he traveled to Afghanistan in the summer of 2001 to train for jihad. NYTimes
