Three of the five men charged with plotting the Sept. 11 attacks skipped their military tribunal hearing Tuesday after a judge ruled the men could not be forced to attend the session.
Five planners of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were arraigned on Sunday before a military tribunal at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba. The 13-hour proceeding was a theatrical farce, which unfortunately gives a taste of things to come.

As President Obama weighed in to support the Ground Zero mosque during a White House dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on Friday, one can only imagine what Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), the self-professed mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, must be saying at Guantanamo.
Cheryl Bormann, an attorney for another of the defendants, Walid bin Attash, said she wouldn't be surprised if the government had surreptitiously recorded her client's conversations.
