(Newser) – The Obama administration’s plan to try alleged 9/11 terror plotters in a lower Manhattan court bit the dust today, swamped by waves of criticism from politicians from New York to Washington. “New York is out,” a source tells the Washington Post tonight. “We’re considering other options.” Officials are still committed to trying self-proclaimed mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and others in civilian, and not military, court.
