Seattle entrepreneur James Ujaama provided key information in the case against Abu Hamza al-Masri, a radical Muslim cleric arrested in London last week on terrorism-related charges, including trying to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon. In return for his testimony, Ujaama will be sentenced to two years in prison for aiding the Taliban, part of a plea deal with federal prosecutors. Hear NPR's Wendy Kaufman.
