"NEW YORK -- The Obama administration has begun consideration of canceling plans for the trial here of the accused chief organizer of the 9/11 terrorist attacks due to cost and security issues, according to a report in The New York Times. The report said Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others have raised objections to Manahatten as the venue for a a civilian criminal trial for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who has admitted planning the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and four alleged accomplices. President Obama Thursday directed the Justice Department to handle the decision and agency officials have begun looking at other sites in the U.S., the report said.
