War court conducts secret hearing in 9/11 case 20 Aug 2013 An Army judge ordered alleged Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his co-defendants removed from the war court Monday and held the first secret hearing of the 9/11 capital tribunal on a government motion that's so secret the public cannot know what it was. Army Col. James L. Pohl, the judge, ruled that an open hearing would present a risk to national security, without specifying how. He rejected a defense request to include the men who, if convicted, could be executed for conspiring in the worst foreign domestic attack on U.S. soil, including 2,976 counts of murder. At issue was a motion labeled AE52 and listed as "government consolidated notice regarding ex parte, in camera filing and motion for finding" - in short, a secret request from the government for a secret ruling from the judge.
