UPDATED: 9/11 Case Military Commission Charges Coming Today

NBC reports that the military is reinstating military commission charges against Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his fellow alleged 9/11 co-conspirators as early as today, a move we expected and the first step towards getting these cases to trial, nearly a decade after the horrible events of that September morning.

The commission charges against these 5 men were dismissed early last year when it appeared the cases were headed for civilian federal court.

UPDATE: DoD now reports the charges have been re-preferred

UPDATE 2:  Here's a copy of the charge sheet.
