The alleged leader of a group accused of plotting terrorist attacks in the US repeatedly mentioned the Sears Tower as a target in a videotaped conversation with a paid FBI informant shown in court Friday. Narseal Batiste mentions the Chicago skyscraper, along with the Empire State Building in New York City and a National Guard armory in northern Miami as potential attack sites. His comments are caught in surveillance video filmed in the apartment of Abbas al Saidi, a Yemeni national who Batiste believed was connected with al-Qaida but actually was working for the FBI.
