Headline: US to Seek Death Penalty in 9-11 Case

US military prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for six Guantanamo detainees held for their roles in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The six who face this sentence include Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the former al-Qaeda operations chief who has called himself the mastermind of the attacks, and the so-called “20th hijacker,” the man who was denied entry to the US the month before the attack.

Though no one was officially allowed to comment on the case, an anonymous Defense Department official said, “if any case warrants it, it would be for individuals who were parties to a crime of that scale.” However, even if the military court rules for the death penalty on the capital charges, an execution could take months or even years to conclude, as a death sentence would also have to be scrutinized by civilian appeals courts.
