The self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks repeatedly declined to respond to a judge's questions Saturday and his co-defendant was briefly restrained at a military hearing as five men charged with the worst terror attack in U.S. history appeared in public for the first time in more than three years.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his co-defendants were being arraigned at a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay on charges that include that include 2,976 counts of murder for the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
The hearing quickly bogged down before they could be arraigned as the men engaged in what appeared to be a concerted silent protest against the proceedings.
Comment....Just a few things on this...Are they going to publicize the names of the lawyers defending these murderers? What has taken so long aside from the usual lawyer dirty trick tactics...If they tried these murderers in Connecticut there is no death penalty. The Governor just signed that into law..
