Only partly responsible for trying to kill the Pope

A Variety of responses to Khalid Shaikh Mohammed's confessions.
(The photo btw is from his capture in March of 2003. The Pentagon must have more recent photos - so the choice of this photo where he looks dishevelled and insane is deliberate. It seems possible that it violates the Geneva convention provision that prohibits photographs of prisoners that might hold them up to ridicule.)

Breaking News: Terrorist Scumbag Confesses to Masterminding 9/11/01

What best to say in the name of the 2,996 people who died at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, United Flight 93, those who died on the ‘93 attempt against the Towers, the Bali attack, those who survived the shoe bomb attempt on a plane flying over the Atlantic, and WSJ reporter Danny Pearl, among others?

Two things.

May your last meal consist of pork chops.

And may you rot in Hell.

BTW - Would we know about this without Gitmo? Or the intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq? I don’t think so.

Not buying his logic, but not doubting his confession, here...

Even the conservatives have some doubts though:
He apparently stopped short of claiming credit for killing the czar and his ministers, and shooting either the sheriff or his deputy.

cnn poll shows 76% of respondents dubious about some of the claims

From the bbc forum:

It's amazing how talkative 220 volts can cause a person to become....

I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't the guy that knocked the wing mirror off my car in Milton Keynes last week...

I guess another couple of weeks and he'll admit to stealing my bike...

And finally the true skeptics:
KSM: The Ultimate Patsy "Confesses"
Go back to sleep, you can trust a press release from a heavily redacted secret military tribunal of a tortured detainee conducted by individuals representative of an oligarchy whose every deception, gross violation of U.S. law, and act of imperial bloodletting over the last six years rests on maintaining the orthodoxy of the official 9/11 myth
