An audio recording said to be of Osama Bin Laden threatens to kill Americans if Khalid Sheik Mohammed is executed.  Mohammed is the self-professed mastermind of the 9-11 attacks.  He has said that if he is executed, it would make him a martyr and he would welcome it.  Al-Jazeera aired the audio recording where Bin Liden is said to mention Khalid Sheik Mohammed by name. The voice says if Mohammed or the four other men charged with him are executed, then any American taken captive by al-Qaida will be killed.  No Americans are known to be in the hands of al-Qaida but Pfc. Bowe Berghdal was captured by a Taliban faction in Pakistan. Mohammed is charged with murder and war crimes and no decision has been made to try him in civilian court or a military tribunal.
