The decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four co-conspirators at Guantanamo Bay instead of a court in New York has been criticised by The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
The Obama administration is making a terrible mistake by prosecuting the most important terrorism trials of our time in a second-tier system of justice.
Whatever verdict comes out of the Guantanamo military commissions will be tainted by an unfair process and the politics that wrongly pulled these cases from federal courts, which have safely and successfully handled hundreds of terrorism trials."
Why the trial of accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four suspected co-conspirators will be uncomfortable for the US.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four suspected co-conspirators will stand trial in Guantanamo and, if convicted, could face the death penalty.
