9/11 MasterMind Khalid Sheik Mohammed face Military Tribunals!
Washington (CNN) -- Attorney General Eric Holder will announce Monday that Khalid Sheik Mohammed and other alleged 9/11 terrorists will be tried before military tribunals at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility in Cuba, according to two U.S. officials and a government source.
The decision is a sharp reversal for the Obama administration, which wanted the alleged terrorists to have federal civilian trials.
Five suspects are charged before military commissions with participating in the 9/11 plot: Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Walid bin Attash, Ramzi bin al-Shibh, Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali and Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi. All five are currently at Guantanamo.
Holder has promised to seek the death penalty for each of the five men.
