Pentagon plans charges against 6 in 9/11 terror attacks

The Pentagon is planning to charge six detainees at Guantanamo Bay for the September 11 terrorist attacks on America and to seek the death penalty. Defense Department spokesman Bryan Whitman said an announcement of the charges could come Monday. A second official said that military leaders also will seek the death penalty for the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans. Among those held at Guantanamo is Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the attack six years ago in which hijacked planes were flown into buildings in New York and Washington, D.C. Five others are expected to be named in sworn charges.
