GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) - A military judge has
granted the U.S. government's request for another delay in the Sept. 11 war crimes trial at Guantanamo Bay.
Army Col. Stephen Henley granted the 60-day continuance to give President Barack Obama's administration more time to decide whether
to move the trial to civilian court or a revamped military court.
Henley had scheduled a hearing Monday to allow Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and two other defendants to voice any objections. But the
self-proclaimed mastermind of the attacks and the other defendants sent a note to the judge saying they did not oppose the delay.
Mohammed is expected to address the court later on his request to dismiss lawyers assigned to help him with his case.
