Mohammed Confesses

Khalid Sheik Mohammed confessed to planning the 9/11 attacks, according to a transcript of a secret hearing released by the Pentagon.

I believe Mohammed is a terrorist, although I have only the U.S. government's word for it. But let's face it, we picked this guy up four years ago, we've held him in secret detention centers for years, he has no access to counsel, and we've subjected him to who knows what treatment. After all that, I'd confess to shooting the Pope.

If we're going to abandon our ideals of justice in pursuit of the war against terror, we have to accept that confessions we obtain will have limited credibility. Maybe Mohammed did plan 9/11, but I don't believe it because of his confession. I want some real evidence.

KSM also admitted to the following (behind closed doors):

1. conspiring with Lee Harvey Oswald (alias Abu Osman) in assasinating JFK (he was on the grassy knoll).

2. Changing his disguise to work with the Yemeni jew Yigal Amir to assasinate RAbin.

3. Then working with al Quaeda's militant navy wing to shoot down JFK Jr.'s plane over the Atlantic.

You see he really is a mastermind. And the truth is finally coming out.

Yeah, right. And then maybe Mohammed *is* or was the terrorist mastermind. It seems more probable than your hypothesis that he confessed under torture.
