Guantanamo Detainees Plead Guilty

Five Guantanamo detainees charged with coordinating the 9/11 attacks informed a military judge that they intended to confess and plead guilty.  The NYT reports here.  The move seems calculated to challenge the U.S. government to put them to death, thus making them martyrs.  This is yet another headache from Guantanamo that the Obama administration will confront in its early days; others here and here.
