From New York to al-Qaeda: What made an all-American kid from New York want to become an Islamic terrorist?

Nic Robertson has an exclusive, inside look on how authorities tracked down confessed terrorist, Bryant Neal Vinas, on tonight’s CNN ‘AC360’, 10 p.m. ET. The parallels between Times Square bomb suspect Faisal Shahzad and Bryant Neal Vinas are stunning.

Vinas, an American, was arrested in late 2008 after allegedly training with al Qaeda in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region. He pled guilty to several charges, including conspiracy to murder U.S. nationals.

Here’s a preview of tonight’s episode. The full-length documentary airs on Saturday, May 15th, 8 PM EST.
