Gitmo terrorist Majid Khan may go to Brooklyn for his US trial.
The New York Times reported:

Justice Department officials are close to deciding whether to bring several Guantánamo detainees accused of being Qaeda operatives to Brooklyn for trial in federal court, according to people briefed on the matter.

A decision to try the cases in Brooklyn would mean that major terrorism trials would take place not only in Lower Manhattan, where the self-described mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks is to be prosecuted, but also in New York City’s other busy federal courthouse. Officials have said they are also likely to try detainees from Guantánamo in federal courts in Alexandria, Va., and Washington.

The names of the Guantánamo detainees whose cases are under consideration for trial in Brooklyn have not been publicly disclosed. But the Justice Department guidelines governing the selection process suggest that officials would consider a suspect named Majid Khan, accused of being a Qaeda operative. Federal officials have said that Mr. Khan, a Pakistani who lived in Baltimore for six years, played a range of roles in plots focused on targets in the United States and elsewhere and was linked to an aborted effort to bring down the Brooklyn Bridge.
