"""So in 2001 the US identifies he was targeting the building that the Plaza Bank would later be in, then when he mentions it as Plaza Bank now, it's bogus?..."""

He is either a time traveler or the CIA wrote his confession for him.Did you see a picture of this guy.He dosent look MENSA!


""" or even the WTC, the point was the admission of targeting a facility that did not yet exist."""

HE HAD INSIDE INFO--This is another bad blot on the war on ERROR..Where's OSAMA

Yeah, his picture makes him look like the only thing he's masterminding is driving a cab from the WTC to Penn Station or the Slurpee machine at the 7/11, not destroying the WTC on 9/11. Of course maybe that's where his less than stellar command of English comes in handy for the interrogators.

Re: Khalid "Confessed" To Targeting Bank Founded After His Arrest
After 4 years of supposed torture from the US government, I'd probably admit to just about anything. Thank you Khalid for taking credit, I don't know what all of the stupid american people might do if they didn't have someone like you giving false confessions. Thank you! Thank you!


Shed your Gucci's and Pradas America and wake the *uck up!

Khalid received any INFO to be ready for his defense.
..................................
If building had in 2001 different name /XYZ/ and he will

name it /XYZ/ you will attack report with comments "It does

not exist."

Use your BRAIN. How he will tell you which building is it?

Re: Khalid "Confessed" To Targeting Bank Founded After His Arrest
The Confession Backfired
by Paul Craig Roberts



DIGG THIS

The first confession released by the Bush regimeís Military Tribunals Ė that of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Ė has discredited the entire process. Writing in Jurist, Northwestern University law professor Anthony DíAmato likens Mohammedís confession to those that emerged in Stalinís show trials of Bolshevik leaders in the 1930s.

That was my own immediate thought. I remember speaking years ago with Soviet dissident Valdimir Bukovsky about the behavior of Soviet dissidents under torture. He replied that people pressed for names under torture would try to remember the names of war dead and people who had passed away. Those who retained enough of their wits under torture would confess to an unbelievable array of crimes in an effort to alert the public to the falsity of the entire process.

That is what Mohammed did. We know he was tortured, because his response to the obligatory question about his treatment during his years of detention is redacted. We also know that he was tortured, because otherwise there is no point for the US Justice (sic) Dept. memos giving the green light to torture or for the Military Commissions Act, which permits torture and death sentence based on confession extracted by torture.

Mohammedís confession of crimes and plots is so vast that Katherine Shrader of the Associated Press reports that the Americans who extracted Mohammedís confession do not believe it either. It is exaggerated, say Mohammedís tormentors, and must be taken with a grain of salt.

In other words, the US torture crew, reveling in their success, played into Mohammedís hands. Pride goes before a fall, as the saying goes.

Mohammedís confession admits to 31 planned and actual attacks all over the world, including blowing up the Panama Canal and assassinating presidents Carter and Clinton and the Pope. Having taken responsibility for the whole ball of wax along with everything else that he could imagine, he was the entire show. No other terrorists needed.

Reading responses of BBC listeners to Mohammedís confession reveals that the rest of the world is either laughing at the US government for being so stupid as to think that anyone anywhere would believe the confession or damning the Bush regime for being like the Gestapo and KGB.

Humorists are having a field day with the confession: "íIím a very dangerous mastermind,í said Mohammed, who confessed to the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby, the Brinkís robbery, St. Valentineís Day Massacre, and the Lincoln and McKinley assassinations. Mohammed also accepted responsibility for spreading hay fever and cold sores around the world and for rained out picnics."

If there was anything remaining of the Bush regime not already discredited, Mohammedís confession removed any reputation left.

The most important part of the Mohammed story is yet to make the headlines. Despite having held and tortured hundreds of detainees for years in Gitmo, and we donít know how many more in secret prisons around the world, the US government has come up with only 14 "high value detainees."

In other words, the government has nothing on 99 percent of the detainees who allegedly are so dangerous and wicked that they must be kept in detention without charges, access to attorneys and contact with families.

And little wonder. The vast majority of detainees, alleged "enemy combatants," are not terrorists captured by the CIA and brave US troops. They are hapless persons who happened to be outside their tribal or home territories and were kidnapped by criminal gangs or war lords who profited greatly at the expense of the naive Americans who offered bounties for "terrorists."

The US government does not care that innocent people have been ensnared, because the US government desperately needs both to prove that there are vast numbers of terrorists and to demonstrate its proficiency in protecting Americans by capturing terrorists. Moreover, the US government needs "dangerous suspects" that it can use to keep Americans in a state of supine fearfulness and as a front behind which to undermine constitutional protections and the Bill of Rights.

The Bush-Cheney Regime succeeded in its evil plot, only to throw it all away by releasing the ridiculous confession by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Will Bushís totalitarian Military Tribunal now execute Mohammed on the basis of his confession extracted by torture, or would this be seen everywhere on earth as nothing but an act of murder?

If Bush canít have Mohammed murdered, the US government will have to shut Mohammed away where he cannot talk and tell his tale. The US government will have to replicate Orwellís memory hole by destroying Mohammedís mind with mind-altering drugs and abuse.

It is to such depths that George Bush and Dick Cheney have lowered America.

Ludicrous is a good word choice I think.
No matter how much dirt is uncovered on the lying, profiteering bastards that stole the Whitehouse and introduced the nation the New levels of depravity,... there exist those that sell their souls to the Devil and defend the indefensible.

Secret torture prisons producing confessions,...yawn

I find reading their posts TORTURE these days, but enjoy watching them squirm.

Good luck to you Shadow,... with yer monkey!!!1rof1

That's what I don't get. The cost has been huge, yet there are those that dredge up the faintest of excuses to defend this wholesale slaughter and expenditure.

Sigma, you are a nasty individual. Rather than bring an idea to a thread, to help clarify something, you insult, and try to cause ill feelings. Why is that? Can you not contribute without being a jerk? Are you THAT insecure that you have to try to put others down, so you can feel better about you?

"A to Z" is not something you'd expect to hear from a Muslim.

And isn't it funny that 5 1/2 years later, the US has yet to successfully try and convict a single solitary person for 9/11.

Let's see, I think I've spoken to you on about three threads. I've been here a year and a half or two. Nice try on attempting to stir shit with Trinity, lol. That was not the thread title, and he and I had a very positive exchange on it, as we have had in other threads. We share a lot of viewpoints. In case you haven't noticed, being an insincere ass kisser won't score you any points with Trinity, or anyone else.
