A 2021 date has been established for the death-penalty trial of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four other men charged as the masterminds behind the September 11 attack in New York City.
Colonel W. Shane Cohen of the Air Force announced on Friday that the trial is set for January 11, 2021. The case will take place at Camp Justice at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba.
Cohen set the date so that a military jury could be selected, the New York Times reports.

Oh, and when are they frying Major Hassan? My 101st Airborne buddies want to know.
So his death penalty trial will only begin TWENTY YEARS after the event occurred.
How is this justice??!!!
By that point it will be twenty years since the act was committed. How frickin’ long does it take to impanel a jury??!?
This is a travesty.
The people who were involved in the assassinated of Lincoln, and the people who actually assassinated Garfield and McKinley were all executed mere months after the crime.
He should have been interrogated and executed long ago.
This is one of those things President Trump should De-Classify ASAP!!. My money says Americans will have an Entirely Different Attitude towards 911 if he did.
Not a big believer in coincidence or happenstance.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm seems that date is just before the re inauguration/inauguration date of the President, or new President, which must, has to be the re inauguration.
I’d say there’s some politics at play here.
Justice delayed is justice denied!
(Take note, AG Barr.)
the people who actually assassinated Garfield and McKinley were all executed mere months after the crime.
Well that didn’t take long - then of course they’d be on DR for decades.
Epstein gets whacked before he could negotiate a deal, meanwhile another terrorist will die of old age at the Gitmo Fitness&Activities Center.
Camp Justice? Really.
Justice? For who?
??? I thought they already tried and executed this guy. Speaking of which, did they ever catch the one-eyed Mullah Omar?
Guess they used the US Postal System for correspondence...
Nice "speedy trial" there Uncle Sam.
2021???????? Fire that judge and replace him with someone who believe in swift justice.
“So his death penalty trial will only begin TWENTY YEARS after the event occurred.

We don’t actually have a “Justice” system, we have a “Legal” system. We need to get rid of all the touchy-feely stuff and get back to actual American values.
Back in the day,the Military had swift justice by the firing squad or the rope. These pieces of sh*t in Leavenworth need to be put down like the rabid dogs that they are. I would also put that piece of sh*t Bergdahl and that freak Manning in prison preferably with a death date.
What’s the hurry?
What a joke...
