Opponents of the Obama administration's plan to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other suspected terrorists in New York City will hold a Dec. 5 rally in front of the federal courthouse to demand that the trials take place elsewhere, according to the Daily News. "This is perhaps the most dangerous decision any President and any attorney general have ever made," said Rep. Pete King (R-Nassau), who publicized the event alongside a new group called 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America.

But many New Yorkers —including about 79 percent of Gothamist readers — think the accused 9/11 plotters should be tried in Manhattan. "They're common thugs and that's all they deserve to be treated as," said retired Army Gen. James Cullen, a former military lawyer. "We're involved in a war of ideas and values. Our values and idea are better. We need to be able to demonstrate that." No date has been set for the trials.
