One Week Ago : “Obama gives up on plan for 9/11 civilian trials”

April 26, 2011

WASHINGTON — In an about-face on the day President Barack Obama announced his re-election bid, Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday ordered that confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other alleged co-plotters stand trial before a military commission at Guantanamo rather than in a civilian court.

It was an embarrassing reversal nearly a year and a half after Holder announced with much fanfare that the five men, who’d been held for years in secret CIA custody before being transferred to the Guantanamo military prison in 2006, would face justice in a courtroom in lower Manhattan.
