Still taking his time

The Obama administration is still deciding where to stage the 9/11 mass murder trials of five alleged co-conspirators now held at Guantánamo, the Defense Department’s top lawyer told Congress on Thursday.

Pentagon General Counsel Jeh Johnson urged the House Armed Services Committee to allow both civilian courts as well as military commissions to prosecute the detainees at the U.S. Navy base in southeast Cuba.
