Burr Statement on the President’s Decision to Bring 9/11 Terrorists to the U.S.

Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) issued the following statement in response to the Administration's announcement that Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four of his 9/11 co-conspirators will be tried in a civilian Federal court in New York.


"I am disappointed to learn of the President's decision to bring Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four of his co-defendants to New York to be tried in federal court.  These are some of the most dangerous terrorists in the world; I find it shocking that the Administration would choose to bring the self-proclaimed mastermind of the September 11 attacks to our shores.
