The Obama administration has decided to put Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the other 9/11 defendants on trial before military commissions at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, abandoning the plans to bring them to the U.S. for trial in a regular civilian federal courtroom.

Attorney General Eric Holder will announce the decision at 2:00 pm ET at a news conference at the Justice Department.
