FOX NEWS--A former Baltimore resident who has been detained in Guantanamo Bay pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges against him, including murder, attempted murder, conspiracy, spying and providing material support to al Qaeda.
Majid Khan admitted that he was part of the successful plot to bomb the Marriott Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia, in 2003, which killed 11 and injured 76. Two victims from the bombing were in the military court in Guantanamo to witness the proceeding.
As part of a plea agreement, Khan is expected to testify against other detainees including the self-described architect of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
Khan's defense team argues that the plea agreement should be kept secret or sealed because releasing the information would put a target on the back of Khan's family and relatives. The prosecution team, led by a lawyer from the Department of Justice, insisted the plea should be made public because so much of the information is already available.
Khan is the first of 14 high-value detainees who were held in the CIA secret prisons to cut a deal. He has promised not to sue the CIA or the U.S. government over his detention. (Read more.)

Muslim Terrorist Majid Khan Will Testify against other Terrorists as Part of Plea Bargain
Hmmm. Testifying against fellow Muslims in order to get a lighter sentence? Will that reduce the number of virgins he gets in paradise?
