Pentagon Releases 9/11 Mastermind’s Confession
Posted on Mar 14, 2007
The military has released a confession attributed to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the supposed mastermind of 9/11. According to the partially redacted transcript of his secret hearing, Mohammed claimed responsibility for 28 attacks, including 9/11, the Bali bombing, a number of operations that were never carried out and some that were not thought to be closely related to al-Qaida.
At one point during his hearing, the presiding officer asked whether Mohammed was speaking under duress. His response was blacked out, although he appeared to suggest the CIA had tortured him.
The military has refused to allow outside observers to attend the hearing.
