9/11 Defendants Ignore Judge At Guantanamo Hearing [VIDEO]

Some victims’ family members say they were angered as they watched the antics of the self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind and his co-defendants at their arraignment in Guantanamo Bay Cuba.

The delays turned what should have been a two hour hearing into a 13-hour ordeal. Others who watched, however, say they still felt good that the men were being brought to justice.

The defendants defiantly disrupted the military hearing by kneeling in prayer, ignoring the judge and not listening to Arabic translations as they confronted nearly 3,000 counts of murder.

It wasn’t until more than seven hours into the hearing that prosecutors at the U.S. military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba even began reading the charges against the men.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the admitted 9/11 architect, and the four men accused of aiding the 9/11 conspiracy put off their pleas until a later date. Another hearing is set for June 12.
