Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who confessed to masterminding the 9/11 terror attacks sometime during or after his 183 waterboardings, will face a military tribunal now that the Obama administration has given up on the idea of trying to convict him in the U.S. justice system. —PZS
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, and four alleged co-conspirators will be tried in a military commission at Guantanamo Bay, not a civilian court.
“We simply cannot allow a trial to be delayed any longer,” Attorney General Eric Holder said.
The Obama administration abandoned plans to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a US court, amid fierce opposition.
