One of seven defendants was acquitted Thursday of plotting to destroy Chicago's Sears Tower and wage war against the US, and a mistrial was declared for the remaining six after the federal jury deadlocked. The seven men were accused of plotting with al-Qaida to destroy the Sears Tower and bomb FBI offices in Miami and elsewhere.
