KSM Trial to Resume at Gitmo

The long-delayed trial of accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed is set to resume in a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay, according to a Pentagon official. The trial began under the Bush administration, but was suspended when Obama was elected amid the administration’s plans to shut down the Guantanamo detention center and hold the trial in New York. After that effort floundered in the face of congressional opposition, Attorney General Eric Holder turned the case back over to the military, where the charges against Mohammed and four other accused hijackers were reinstated.
