Questions Raised On September 11 Death Penalty

Even if a terrorist pleads guilty to being involved in the September 11 attacks, they might not be able to face the death penalty, if they are tried in military court.

Attorney General Eric Holder said that it's possible to impose the death penalty in a civilian setting for someone who pleads guilty.

But he says there's far less legal certainty about that possibility in a military setting.

Since January, Holder has said that all options are on the table about where to try five terrorist suspects.

That includes the possibility of having them go before a military commission in Guantanamo Bay, where they are now held.
