Breaking: KSM Military Tribunal Planned

Khalid Sheik Mohammed, or KSM, is now set to have a military tribunal to decide his fate. The mastermind of the September 11th atrocities was originally slated by the Obama Administration to undergo a civilian trial in New York. Now he is going in front of military judges.

From CBS:

Attorney General Eric Holder today will announce that self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad will be tried in a military commission, CBS News has learned. A source says the commission will be held at the Guantanamo Bay prison.
Trying Mohammed in a civilian court and closing the Guantanamo prison were once some of the Obama administration's top priorities, but political realities have hamstrung both goals.
Holder previously announced that Mohammed and four other alleged Sept. 11 plotters would be tried in New York City, but he scrapped that plan in the wake of public consternation.
