In an en banc decision, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed Ali Hamza al-Bahlul's conviction by military commission for conspiracy to commit war crimes. The decision is the opposite of the court's panel decision last June, which vacated al-Bahlul's conviction. The court's decision is also available here.
