  1. Not to mention – isn’t it logical if he WASN’T the mastermind of at least some (if not all) of the plots – and he wanted to COVER for the man who WAS – he would “confess”? This should all be taken with a grain of salt – but of course – the Repuglicans want to take maxiumum credit for this…

  2. I’m with you guys. There is no way for the military let alone the media or us to estimate the veracity of what that man has said under most likely some of the worst torture ever meted out by the USA. One can only imagine how incredibly horrid waterboarding is if this guy holds the record at a measly 2 and a half minutes. And I’ll bet that wasnt the worst of what he faced. Don’t get me wrong, the man is likely a true enemy of the civilized world but some of America’s behaviour since 9-11 is also a true enemy of civilized society as we have learned to value and appreciate it. Oh did you hear, KSM also admitted to the murder of Jimmy Hoffa and told his torturers where the body could be found.

  3. Daniel Schorr, commentator for NPR, pointed out today (Saturday) on Weekend Edition that most, if not all of Mohammed’s “confessions” are not new, and have been known to the government for quite a while. Schorr’s take on the press release was that it was a staged media event planned as a distraction from the previous days’ headlines about the flap about the firing of the Justice Department prosecutors, the growing calls to fire Gonzales, and the suggestion that Rove is implicated. Schorr also pointed out that it was successful: the Justice Dept. scandal was relegated to the inside pages, and Mohammed’s alleged confessions were all over the front pages and/or the featured news on TV news programs. Terrorists sure come in handy sometimes!

  4. We shouldnt torture or imprison KSM, we should negotiate with him. By imprisoning people like KSM and extrajucidically kidnapping him from Pakistan, ziocons have worsened relationships between the US, Europe, and the Muslim world. Sounds like a Ziocon perfect storm.
