The confessed mastermind of the September 11th terrorist attacks will face charges in the city he targeted.

The Obama administration has decided that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other terrorism suspects now detained at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay will be charged in civilian court.

Two Obama administration officials confirmed plans to transfer Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other men to New York City from the prison at Guantanamo Bay to face charges in a civilian federal court. The five are currently charged before a military commission proceeding at Guantanamo Bay prison that was suspended as the Obama administration considered where to try them.

Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to announce the decision at 11 am.
