    Bomber from N.J. handed multiple life sentences for NYC, Seaside Heights bombings

    A man who set off small bombs in two states, including a pressure cooker device that blasted shrapnel across a New York City block, was sentenced Tuesday to multiple terms of life in prison.

    Ahmad Khan Rahimi, who was born in Afghanistan but lived in New Jersey, injured 30 people when one of his pressure cooker bombs exploded in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood on a September night in 2016. A second bomb planted nearby did not detonate.

    Federal prosecutors said in presentence papers that Rahimi has not shown remorse and has tried to radicalize fellow prisoners at the federal jail in New York where he has been imprisoned since his arrest.

    "He is proud of what he did, scornful of the American justice system, and as dedicated as ever to his terrorist ideology," they wrote.

    Chelsea bomber sentenced to rot away in prison

    An unrepentant, homegrown Islamic terrorist was sentenced to multiple life terms behind bars Tuesday for setting off a time bomb that injured 31 people in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood as part of a planned wave of attacks across New York and New Jersey.

    Ahmad Khan Rahimi, an Afghan immigrant who became radicalized through online postings by al Qaeda and ISIS, had faced at least one mandatory life sentence since a jury convicted him in October on eight counts, including use of a weapon of mass destruction.

    Chelsea bomber: man behind New York attack gets multiple life sentences

    Federal prosecutors said in court papers that Rahami has not shown remorse and had tried to radicalize fellow prisoners at the federal jail in New York where he has been imprisoned since his arrest.

    “He is proud of what he did, scornful of the American justice system, and as dedicated as ever to his terrorist ideology,” they wrote. Rahami, given a chance to speak at his sentencing, said: “I don’t harbor hate for anyone.”
    [.....]
    Rahami, prosecutors said, gave inmates copies of terrorist propaganda and jihadist materials, including speeches and lectures by the founder of al-Qaida, Osama bin Laden, and Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born cleric who inspired attacks on America and was killed in a US airstrike in September 2011.

    Rahami also allowed some inmates to view materials on his laptop or provided electronic copies as he spread The Book of Jihad, bomb-making instructions and various issues of a propaganda magazine, the court heard.
