Many of the detainees at Guantanamo have been held since 2002. Five men accused of orchestrating the Sept. 11 attacks, including the self-proclaimed mastermind, are headed back to a military tribunal  at Guantanamo Bay more than three years after President Barack Obama put the case on hold in a failed effort to move the proceedings to a civilian court and close the prison at the U.S. base in Cuba.

U.S. prosecutors and defense attorneys for five defendants in the September 11 attacks dug in on Sunday, May 6, for a long legal battle that one lawyer said may never be resolved. The five men accused of orchestrating the September 11 attacks, including the self-proclaimed mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, are charged with the worst terror attack in U.S. history, including 2,976 counts of murder for the 2001 attacks.
