This December 2009 file photo released by the U.S. Marshal's Service shows Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in Milan, Mich. The stakes are significant as the government prosecutes Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab for the first terrorist attack in the U.S. during the Obama administration, a failed suicide strike that forced the rapid deployment of full-body scanners at American airports and revealed the rise of a new al-Qaida group. Jury selection in his trial begins Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2011.
