Khalid Sheikh Mohammed self-professed 9/11 mastermind and four co-conspiratorst o be tried at Guantanamo Bay
WASHINGTON — In a reversal for President Barack Obama, the United States will try self-professed September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four co-conspirators at Guantanamo Bay and not in New York as Obama had hoped.

Obama, who has tried and failed to close the prison at a U.S. Navy base on Cuba, had planned to send the five suspects to New York for a civilian trial in a court near the site of the World Trade Center that was destroyed in the attacks.

But he failed to overcome political resistance and dropped the plan. Last month, he also reluctantly lifted a two-year freeze on new military trials at Guantanamo after failing to make headway on a U.S. alternative with lawmakers.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder would announce the site of the trial of Mohammed and his co-conspirators at 2 p.m. (1900 GMT) on Monday.
