From CBS 2 in New York:
On Sunday, CBS 2 learned that Khalid Sheikh Mohammad and his four co-defendants will plead not guilty, a controversial courtroom strategy for the 9/11 terror suspects. But apparently it’s all part of a plan to make a very public political statement.
On Sunday, the attorney for one of the defendants announced the five suspects would all plead not guilty, including Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, self-proclaimed mastermind of the attacks.
The attorney said the terror suspects would not deny their roles in the attack, but would explain “what they did, and why they did it” â€“ using the trial as a political platform to criticize U.S. foreign policy.
Unless they close the court to cameras, this is going to be a circus.
