WASHINGTON (AP) -- Self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Guantanamo Bay detainees will be sent to New York to face trial in a civilian federal court, an Obama administration official said Friday.
The official said Attorney General Eric Holder plans to announce the decision later in the morning.
The official is not authorized to discuss the decision before the announcement, so spoke on condition of anonymity.
I swear Obama is doing things now with the intent of trying to rile up and upset conservative and independents. This move is just baffling and disgraceful.
as a defense attorney i would successfully move to IMMEDIATELY have all charges dropped on the grounds that any and all evidence gathered by the united states is inadmissible based on the fact that the united states government itself broke it's own laws by detaining these men. therefore it is safe to say that the same government WOULD and COULD manufacture evidence to suit it's own purpose. then i would sue the government and WIN.
Anywhere they want to. If they are aquitted they would have to be released.
