Plea deal for Gitmo detainee

By Carol Cratty

A high-value terror suspect held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has reached a plea agreement with military prosecutors in which he would plead guilty and agree to testify against other detainees in return for a reduced sentence, according to a source familiar with the case.

Majid Khan, 31, was charged earlier this month with conspiracy, murder and attempted murder in violation of the law of war, providing material support for terrorism and spying. He was scheduled to be arraigned on February 29. If convicted during a military commission he faced a maximum of life in prison.

The source familiar with the case said Khan would plead guilty to all charges under the terms of the agreement, but the source would not specify exactly how much time Khan would have to serve if the agreement is approved by a military judge.

    hope he doesnt bring up the fact that bush, cheney and the cia deliberately started war based on the false evidence. anyone remember colin powell at the u.n.?? then they had to give out plane loads of cash (without even a receipt)... then they built a 102-acre u.s. diplomatic campus for $750 million...over 100,000 iraqis have died because bush lied...the lives of u.s. and allied soldiers...the trillions of dollars....the further erosion of american honor and justice thruout the world...

        Your inane gibberish never ceases to astound me. You are consistent – I'll give you that.

        Then're also delusional.
