Justice Dept. Considering Putting Guantanamo Inmates on Trial in Brooklyn and Other Places

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department may end up not only holding trials for Guantanamo prisoners in a Manhattan court, but also in Brooklyn and eventually D.C. and Alexandria, according to a report in the New York Times.

The Times reported that authorities were close to deciding whether to hold trial for some Guantanamo Bay inmates in the Brooklyn federal courthouse. Justice officials have not publicly disclosed who would go on trial there.

Right now the Justice Department has plans to hold trial in lower Manhattan for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, and four of his cronies.

That decision drew criticism from some people who felt it endangered the folks of New York City. They also said defendants should go before a military tribunal, not a civilian court.

A decision to hold trial in other civilian courts is likely to draw more criticism. Stay tuned.
