Prosecutors at the Pentagon are reportedly engaging in negotiations with attorneys representing Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, and his four co-defendants, Your Content has learned.

The aim is to reach a plea agreement that would eliminate the possibility of a death sentence.

These talks, if successful, could bring an end to the longest-running case in the history of the war court, which has spanned over two decades.

The prolonged pretrial proceedings have been primarily hindered by the CIA’s utilization of terrorism tactics. However, while plea agreements may expedite the resolution, they could also provoke strong reactions from the families of 9/11 victims.
