How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Obama Admin. To Prosecute 9/11’s Khalid Sheikh Mohammad in Military Trial

Khalid Sheik Mohammad

WASHINGTON — In an about face — that appeared over time to be more and more likely of a possibility — the  Obama administration has decided to prosecute self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad in a military commission at Guantanamo Bay instead of a civilian court in New York, CBS News reported.

The network reported that Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. will make the announcement Monday afternoon.

Holder originally announced in 2009 that Mohammed would be tried in U.S. District Court in New York. But conservatives on Capitol Hill opposed it and pushed for a military trial.

Eventually, the idea even lost the support of N.Y. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who cited numerous problems that a trial of that magnitude would pose to the Big Apple.

Mohammad’s most recognizable picture became the one where he was having an extremely bad hair day (to the right).
