Key suspect 'admits 9/11 guilt

by Mark5019 / March 14, 2007 10:06 AM PDT

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged mastermind behind the 11 September attacks, has admitted responsibility, a court transcript says.

"I was responsible for the 9/11 Operation, from A to Z," he said.

He also reportedly confessed to planning to attack Big Ben and Heathrow airport in London, at the hearing at the US Guantanamo Bay camp in Cuba.

The hearing was the first time the Pakistani national had faced a court since being captured four years ago.

Sheikh Mohammed was believed to be the third most senior al-Qaeda leader before his capture in March 2003.

well they should find nearest wall and shoot him

How did they get the information?

I hope they didn't torture him! Because it's impossible to get information that way, as we've been told. I sure hope he was treated humanely in accordance to the Geneva Conventions which don't apply to his case.

Must handle terrorists with kid gloves after all!

"Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, said there was no way of knowing whether the confession was the result of torture."

"We need to know if this purported confession would be enough to convict him at a fair trial," he said.

"It appeared, from a judge's question, that Mr Mohammed had made allegations of torture in US custody."

"However, when asked whether his statement was produced under duress, he said it was not."

Torture to get intelligence could possibly be fruitful. Torture to get an admission, like done in the old medieval chambers, usually results in the admission to stop or reduce the torture and generally not fruitful or accurate.

SomehoSomehow, I don't think the suspect "admitted anything. They had him say this stuff in a "secret meeting," which means he had no attorney, which is a violation of due process. I think our hgovernment tortured him to worm the confession out of him. Confessions gotten through torture are inadmissible.

I think maybe

You should read what the Geneva Convention is all about! Read it then come back and tell us that terrorists have any rights at all under that document! Get some real life experience and come back in a few years with what you think.
