Military Tribunal Starts for 9/11 Mastermind

Tribunal starts for five men accused in 9/11 attacks, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

The military tribunal for five of the men accused of planning and orchestrating the attacks on Sept. 11 is set to begin on Saturday, three years after an attempt to try the case in a civilian court, the Associated Press reported.

One of the men is the self-proclaimed mastermind of the terrorist attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. The tribunal, consisting of an arraignment and a hearing, will take place at the U.S. military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Mohammed has said previously that he welcomes the death penalty.

 

In 2008, the Obama administration attempted to bring the case before a federal court in New York, but failed to do so over congressional objection and pretrial motions.
