New York trial for alleged 9/11 mastermind - Times OnlineFive Guantanamo Bay detainees alleged to have masterminded the September 11 attacks are to be taken to the United States to stand trial in a civilian court in New York, an Obama Administration official said today.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged accomplices will be brought on to US soil for trial as part of President Obama’s pledge to close down the detention centre in Cuba.
The Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to officially announce the decision today.
Mr Obama initially planned to close Guantanamo by January 22 next year but the Administration is no longer expected to meet that deadline
Interesting, they will be tried under a civilian court, I wonder if evidence obtained through questionable means will be dismissed
