Guantánamo Bay Military Commission Will Try Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, not a Civilian Court

The New York Times has jus announced that the Obama administration has decided to use a military commission at Guantánamo Bay to try Khalid Shaikh Mohammed for his alleged role in the attacks of
September 11.  This is a major reversal of the policy that he was going to be tried instead in a civilian courtroom.  A Department of Justice press conference is expected later today.
