Osama's Chef Enters Guilty Plea At Gitmo Tribunal

Score one for the tribunal system. Osama bin Laden's chef/bodyguard, Ibrahim al-Qosi, entered a guilty plea before the tribunal at Guantanamo Bay.
Osama Bin Laden's former cook and driver has pleaded guilty at a Guantanamo Bay tribunal to conspiracy and providing support for terrorism.

In a plea deal, Sudanese-born Ibrahim al-Qosi also admitted working as Bin Laden's bodyguard Afghanistan and helping him avoid capture by US forces.

Mr Qosi, 50, has been held at the US naval base on Cuba for eight years.

His plea represents the first conviction for the Obama administration at the controversial war crimes court.
The terms of the deal have yet to be made public.

Thomas Joscelyn has background on Qosi.
