US Vice President Joe Biden said that the Obama administration has not ruled out a military trial for the professed mastermind of the Sept. 11 terror attacks even if a civilian trial would be preferable.

Biden, in defending the administration from critics of its approach to prosecuting accused terrorists, said in interviews aired Sunday that it is not yet clear where Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other Sept. 11 suspects held at the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will be tried.

However, Biden said he believes Mohammed will be found guilty regardless of the venue. His remarks echoed comments last month by White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, who said Mohammed "is going to meet justice and he's going to meet his maker."
