Mueller Expects Military Tribunals In Terror Cases


FBI Direcor Robert Mueller expects expects the accused conspirators in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, including alleged mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, to be tried by military tribunals rather than criminal courts, the Washington Post reports. Mueller’s remarks suggested that the government is wary of more prosecutions like the one against Zacarias Moussaoui, who has halted his case with demands to call the alleged conspirators as witnesses.

At a lunch convened by the Christian Science Monitor, Mueller warned that Osama bin Laden’s network is likely to strike the United States again. “Al Qaeda would very much relish another high-profile attack within the United States,” he said.
