Heard this on the radio when I woke up this morning.
"I was responsible for the 9/11 operation, from A to Z," said Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
Yeah, I can buy that. Someone was behind it, and he could well be that guy.
According to the transcripts, he also admitted responsibility for ... the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York, the bombing of nightclubs in Bali in 2002 and a Kenyan hotel in the same year... the failed attempt by the so-called shoe bomber, Richard Reid, to bring down an American plane...
OK. Someone is taking the piss now.
And plotting to... attack Heathrow Airport, Canary Wharf and Big Ben... hit targets in Israel... blow up the Panama Canal... hit towers in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago ... the Empire State Building in New York... attack US nuclear power stations... assassinate Pope John Paul II and .... Bill Clinton.
What's going on?
He did all that stuff, confessed it in open court, bang to rights
He did one or two of those things and admitted to the rest to make the process look suspicious
They told him they'd go easy on him if he admitted to all the other stuff
He did one or two things and confessed to the rest because of torture or fear of torture
He is completely innocent and this is a frame-up
Regardless of innocence, do you think he was tortured?
No, but he would be aware that it was a possibility
No, but they probably put pressure on him on other ways
I haven't put in any 'don't know' options because obviously we don't know and we never will. But you probably have an opinion.
