  • Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to be tried by military tribunal

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S., will be tried by a military commission at the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, NPR's Dina Temple-Raston reports.

    CBS News, Reuters, CNN and other news outlets also are saying they've been told by sources with direct knowledge of the decision that Mohammed will indeed by tried at Guantanamo rather than before a civilian court in the U.S. — as the Obama administration once said would happen. The Associated Press adds that "four co-conspirators" will also face a military commission.

    In early March, President Obama signed an executive order that ended a two-year ban on military trials at Guantanamo Bay.

    While Obama had campaigned on a promise to close the detention facility, and wanted to bring suspected terrorists to justice in civilian courts, Congress passed laws that conducting such trials almost impossible.

    Don't bother telling me, "oh it's her fault too".... I know, I have double standards. Deal with it.

          Yeah, and Holder has his panties in a wad over Obama's decision. Trial by Military Commission has ample precedent, and really is the proper venue. Holder simply doesn't understand that.

            Unfortunately we wont see this guy tried for years as his lawyers bring challenges against the constitutionality of being tried by military commission.
