    Trial of alleged 9/11 mastermind, four others set for early 2021

    Well, this only took 20 years.

    Trial of alleged 9/11 mastermind, four others set for early 2021

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, will stand trial with four other men on war crimes charges at the U.S. military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba beginning in early 2021, a military judge said Friday.

    Air Force Col. W. Shane Cohen set a start date of Jan. 11, 2021, in an order setting motion and evidentiary deadlines. He did so in a case that has been bogged down in pretrial litigation, noting that the trial "will face a host of administrative and logistics challenges."
    Mohammad and his co-defendants are charged with crimes including terrorism, hijacking and 2,976 counts of murder for their alleged roles planning and providing logistical support to the Sept. 11 plot. They could get the death penalty if convicted at the military commission, which combines elements of civilian and military law.
    Please, they are going to die of old age before that ever happens with our "just" criminal system.

    New one on me. So what set of laws are they being tried under? And what is this court that contains elements of both military and civil law? Call me confused.

    He should get the Ham Sandwich penalty, and they should serve those to him, morning noon and night. Let's see what that does for his strict Islamic faith; and he could eat them or die.
