Read further and you'll grind your teeth when you find that they are jumping through hoops to ensure that these scumbags are to be afforded all the niceties that American citizens would get in court. Do you think they deserve it? Anyhow, read about it here: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7412031/Military-judge-sets-2021-date-death-penalty-trial-Khalid-Shaikh-Mohammed-Sept-11-attacks.html
A 2021 date has been established for the death-penalty trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other men charged as the masterminds behind the September 11 attack in New York City.
Colonel W. Shane Cohen of the Air Force announced on Friday that the trial is set for January 11, 2021. The case will take place at Camp Justice at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba.
Khalid Sheikh (also spelled as Shaikh) Mohammed is said to be the architect behind the plot that killed 2,976 in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.Cohen set the date so that a military jury could be selected, the New York Times reports. The selection process is said to take months, with various military personnel having to be flown in by groups to the base.
The date announcement was included in a 10-page trial scheduling order that also established prosecutors had until October 1 to get necessary documents and materials to the defense teams.
Prosecutors will also need to determine how to conduct an MRI (magnetic resonance imagine) to see whether the defendants suffered any brain or other damage while they were tortured. Defense will attempt to use the findings to argue against execution.
Cohen's announcement marks the first time that a trial judge in the case actually established a date. Prosecutors had tried to get the ball rolling with two previous judges after the 2012 arraignment for the 9/11 attacks

All five men were arraigned in the case on May 5, 2012. They were arraigned in a national security courtroom at Guantánamo.
