"A U.S. military legal official has reduced the sentence of an al-Qaida cook who was convicted at a war crimes tribunal at Guantanamo under a plea deal, suspending all but two years of his 14-year sentence, the Pentagon said Wednesday. The Convening Authority for Military Commissions, which presides over the war crimes tribunals at the U.S. base in Cuba, suspended the sentence for Ibrahim al-Qosi contingent on his meeting the terms of the plea agreement, the military said in a statement."
