Holder: Guilty verdict for bin Laden relative won't revive effort to try 9/11 mastermind in NY

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says the successful prosecution of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law won't lead to a new effort to send the self-professed mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks to New York for trial.

Holder on Tuesday congratulated the trial team that prosecuted Sulaiman Abu Ghaith (SOO'-lay-mahn AH'-boo gayth), al-Qaida's spokesman after the attacks. But he told reporters the prosecution won't clear the way for Khalid Sheik Mohammed to be brought to Manhattan because the decision to try him before a military tribunal won't be revisited.

Holder met with prosecutors nearly a week after a jury convicted Abu Ghaith of conspiring to kill Americans and aiding al-Qaida.

Holder says the conviction of the 48-year-old Kuwaiti imam puts the political debate to rest over where terrorism suspects should face trial.
