Majid Khan, who graduated from high school in Baltimore, Maryland, left the US for Pakistan in 2002.  It is alleged that the 32-year old was hand picked by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-described architect of 9/11, for a second wave of attacks inside the US – including plots to blow up gas stations.

Khan is expected to plead guilty to the charges as part of a deal with the US military.  Khan’s sentence will be reduced in exchange for his testimony against other detainees.
