Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday there was a major disagreement in the Bush administration about how to bring suspected terrorists to justice.

Mr. Cheney said there was a “major shootout” in the Bush White House between the Justice Department and “the rest of us” about whether suspects should be charged in federal courts or sent to military tribunals.

He said that dispute was “never thoroughly resolved.”

Mr. Cheney said he believe that professed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will eventually face trial in a military court.
