MSM Finally Covers False Confessions of Khalid Sheik Mohammed

The Miami Herald is running a story entitled "Alleged 9/11 mastermind: `I make up stories' ".

In the story, the Herald notes:

Accused al Qaeda mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed complained that interrogators tortured lies out of him...

''I make up stories,'' Mohammed said ...

In broken English, he described an interrogation in which he was asked the location of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

''Where is he? I don't know,'' Mohammed said. 'Then he torture me. Then I said, 'Yes, he is in this area or this is al Qaeda which I don't know him.' I said no, they torture me.''

This is not new. It has already been documented that Mohammed confessed to crimes which he could not have committed, and that he said that he gave the interrogators a lot of false information - telling them what he thought they wanted to hear - in an attempt to stop the torture.

The only thing that's new is that a mainstream American media outlet is covering the story.

Update: The Washington Post has now covered part of this story, as well as the claim that the CIA thought that Abu Zubaida was Al Qaeda's number 3 man, when he was just a bit player.


  1. Clearly he is talking to stop the enhanced interrogation methods. Water boarding is not torture, cutting off fingers is.
    Sure in his attempt to stop the interrogators he give out false info. But that is shifted out by the intelligence analysts. He is talking, and he is motivated.
    The Democrat Party officials do no dispute that attacks were stopped by Interrogations.

  2. When will the MSM report that the same thing occured at Nuremburg?

  3. Anonymous is a moron. Waterboarding is torture. There is a waterboard on display at the Genocide museum in Cambodia. Grow up some time!

  4. I thought you might be interested in this interview with Peter Dale Scott.
