U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced Monday his decision to try 9/11 suspects in military tribunals at Guantanamo.

Holder said that he stood behind his initial decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in a criminal court.

“Now, unfortunately, since I made that decision, members of Congress have intervened and imposed restrictions blocking the administration from bringing any Guantanamo detainees to try in the United States regardless of the venue,” he explained.
