Government 'close to decision' on trial for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, AG says

Government 'close to decision' on trial for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Eric Holder says 11 Nov 2010 Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday said the government is "close to a decision" on how to try Sept. 11 mastermind patsy Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. Holder's remarks set off a flurry of blowback, with Republicans saying they won't stand for a 9/11 trial on U.S. soil -- and Democrats again nixed New York City as a venue. "We have been working on it, and I think we're close to a decision," the AG told reporters.
