Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other suspects will be at an arraignment session at Guantanamo Bay on June 5.

A Pentagon representative has confirmed that “about four or five dozen” news journalists and associated personnel from both the U.S. and abroad are being invited to attend the June 5 arraignment at Guantanamo Bay of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, often referred to as the “mastermind” of 9/11, and four others allegedly involved in the Sept. 11 attacks.


AFP via Breitbart.com:

Whitman said invitations were being sent to news organizations on Tuesday.

“Our responsibility at the Defense Department here is to make sure we have sufficient US and international media there to be able to report on the proceedings, to make it as transparent as possible.

“But obviously we can’t open it up to everybody. There are logistical issues in terms of getting down to Guantanamo,” he said.

“We’re trying to be robust in our approach. But at the same time we are trying to do it in a responsible way, inviting news organizations that in the totality will cover the world, basically.”
