April 4, 2011 by legitgov

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is expected to announce on Monday afternoon that Mr. Mohammed, the self-described [after being waterboarded 183 times] mastermind of the attacks, and four other accused conspirators will face charges before a panel of military officers, a law enforcement official said. [Oh, NORAD took orders from Osama bin Laden? Because NORAD was given the command to *stand down* on 9/11. So either 9/11 was an inside job or NORAD took orders from Osama bin Laden. Let's get the trials underway for the *actual* perpetrators AND benefactors of 9/11 - the Bush cabal, including 'Lucky Larry' Silverstein. --LRP]
