Confessions of a Terrorist

While I'm sure there are other news source reporting this, it was the first one I found:

From the LA Times:

Sept. 11 mastermind confesses, U.S. saysKhalid Shaikh Mohammed tells a military tribunal in Guantanamo Bay that he planned the attacks 'from A to Z.'

WASHINGTON — Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the Kuwaiti national who is thought to be the highest-ranking Al Qaeda operative in U.S. custody, told a military tribunal in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, last weekend that he was responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to a transcript of the hearing.

In a written statement read to the three-officer panel, Mohammed claimed he was Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's "operational leader" for the "9/11 Operation," responsible for the "organizing, planning, follow-up and execution" of the plot.

"I was responsible for the 9/11 Operation, from A to Z," Mohammed said, according to the transcript of the hearing, which was held in secret Saturday. The transcript was released Wednesday night by the Pentagon. (link)

Now can we get the left to talk some more about releasing these poor lost souls?
