Official: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, 9/11 conspirators to be re-charged for tribunal

The Pentagon will announce Tuesday that charges against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other alleged co-conspirators in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks are being refiled to allow prosecution before a military tribunal at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, naval base, a defense official confirmed.

The move comes after the Obama administration dropped plans to prosecute the suspects in federal court in New York.

Besides Mohammed, the other suspects to face charges of participating in the 9/11 plot are Walid bin Attash, Ramzi bin al-Shibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali and Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi. All five are at Guantanamo.

    I scanned back to about 6:30 or 7:00 (re stoning) and I think that all of the Joey posts are mine.

    Obama has no cooth. If he's going to "hobnob" with royalty he at least needs to learn proper etiquette. He needs to quit Bubba'ing it up and stop making the U.S. like a bunch of Bubba's. Actually Obama and his wife could both stand to take some lessons from Ronald & Nancy Reagan on how to "entertain"foreign dignitaries whether hear or abroad.

    Mrs. Reagan was a model of propriety.

    @Jazzzzzz, I believe joey was referring to Obama's toast to the Queen as he was referencing the recent trip. Mrs. Obama's incident happened a year or so ago.

    We have installed a water meter for KSMs cell and questioning room/pit. At first we thought the excess water usage was due to a leaky line. That's what they told us it was. (shrug) It's good water too. But it's been known to grow hair on your shoulders.

    Mrs. Reagan was also being very proprietary when she was doing Bad Ronald behind Jane Wyatt's back.
    Extremely ancient history, though.

    Glad the idiots are gone. Sorry about some of the earlier posts, I was just trying to make a point about 9/11.

    No kidding.
    Even I knew that, commoner as I am.
    I was shocked myself!
    Did you see the *look* on the Queen's face?
    Oh, boy....

    No, ben, I didn't mean the toast.
    I was a major deal around the world when Joan Crawford only smiled at the Queen.
    The White House staff needs to know about handling royalty, as it were.
