The accused mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, may remain behind bars without trial indefinitely because of disagreement over his trial location, according to the Washington Post.
The Obama administration has concluded it can’t go ahead with its original plan to have the trial in federal court in New York because of opposition from lawmakers and local officials, the Post said. There is little support for reviving an effort to hold a military trial at Guantanamo Bay, according to the Post.
While this was obviously the decision of the Obama administration and they deserve the plurality of blame, I'm sure certain progressives will find a way to blame this solely on the president, when, in fact, Democrats and progressives entirely abandoned this as an issue. Just like Guantanamo. We tend to forget that even the most liberal senators, like Bernie Sanders, voted against funding the closure of that place.
