Holder defends decision to try accused 9/11 terrorists in New York
Washington (CNN) — Attorney General Eric Holder defended his decision Wednesday to try five suspected 9/11 terrorists in civilian court.
“We are at war, and we will use every instrument of national power — civilian, military, law enforcement, intelligence, diplomatic and others — to win,” he told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “We need not cower in the face of this enemy. Our institutions are strong.”
Holder announced last week that the suspected terrorists — including confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — will be tried in civilian court in New York City.
