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.

    Nancy Reagan was about as close to Royalty as we'll probably ever see in America, well her and Jackie Kennedy of course, unfortunately she was First Lady for too short a time.

    Not much of a smile, of course, from la Crawford.
    But then, she kissed my uncle: he owned a Pepsi-Cola bottling plant.

    Well I suppose I shouldn't have been so harsh on them, after all Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating put his arm around the Queen in 92. By the way thanks Joey. Just trying to lighten things up a little.

    Just kissed him, Jazzzzzzzz.
    I can't stand wire hangers either.
    I used to have a clipping of plastic flowers from Crawford's NYC apt.; a friend of mine had known her closely when she died.
    That getting-up scene with the *face ice* that opens the mommy film is a model of performers' discipline.
