KSM Falsely Confessed to Crimes He Didn’t Commit

There’s a great blog out there which is starting to get picked up in what you might call the “mainstream blogosphere” quite a bit.   Mainly in regards to its blogging about Wall Street.   In fact, if you just scroll down the front page right now, you’ll find a great many stories on Wall Street and the economy, and you’ll realize it’s really a fantastic compendium of information.

But what you also might not realize is that this very same blog is a great resource for information on the truth about 9/11.  

I did a quick search on the site and here’s a treasure trove of entries.

Let’s pick one, shall we?

How interesting, and how timely!   Here’s the headline:   Self-Confessed 9/11 “Mastermind” Also Falsely Confessed to Crimes He Didn’t Commit

But wait a minute, the Obama administration is telling me this guy is guilty as sin, no question!   The mainstream bullshit media is also telling me the same thing!   How can there be such a disconnect!?

The thing the Bullshit Media (BM) is not telling us about KSM is that he was waterboarded 183 times in ONE MONTH.

As the Washington Post writes of Guantanamo Bay detainee Abu Zubaida:

President George W. Bush had publicly described him as “al-Qaeda’s chief of operations,” and other top officials called him a “trusted associate” of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and a major figure in the planning of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. None of that was accurate, the new evidence showed.

Okay, maybe they got that one wrong.

But certainly Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s confession that he was the mastermind of 9/11 proves his guilt, right?

Well, as the Telegraph notes today:

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the self-confessed mastermind of 9/11, was waterboarded 183 times in one month, and “confessed” to murdering the journalist Daniel Pearl, which he did not. There could hardly be more compelling evidence that such techniques are neither swift, nor efficient, nor reliable

If one of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s major confessions (Pearl murder) was false, why should we believe his confession about 9/11?

After all, tough-as-nails Navy Seals usually become hysterical when waterboarded once in training sessions. After 183 waterboarding sessions in a month, I wouldn’t be surprised if KSM also confessed to murdering Lincoln and Kennedy.

He goes on to say the following:

Note: I am not saying that KSM did or didn’t have anything to do with 9/11 (I have no idea). I am saying that nothing that the government said about 9/11 should be accepted without independent verification, and that torture does not constitute independent verification. Indeed, given that the government used techniques which were developed especially for producing false confessions, the assumption must be that any confessions were, in fact, false.

Which is something I wrote about here as well, how the CIA hired out Uzbekistan to boil people alive, and rape them with broken bottles, and worse (worse?) in order to deliberately extract false confessions.

So why is the Obama administration coming out and saying with such vehemence that this man’s “confessions” mean anything?   Why are they trying him in a circus of media attention?    Why are they telling us that the death sentence is inevitable, his guilt is not a question?  

Propaganda.  Pure and simple.   It’s a show trial.  It’s as bogus as any other show trial that any other banana republic dictatorship, or Soviet totalitarian state, ever staged.

They know it, and we know it.

Yet another reason why Obama is worse than Bush.   The Bush administration was at least, in its later years, transparent.  They turned out to be very bad actors, bad bullshitters, and people started to see through them in a way that they could no longer deny.   So they handed us Obama.  The slickest, most charming “candidate” to come down the pike in my lifetime.   His job?  To “fix” everything.    Oh, not to fix it for us, to fix it for them.  

This show trial is just part of the Pentagon/CIA’s psychological warfare operations against the United States citizenry.

They’re preparing us for something.  Not sure what.   I can only speculate.   Perhaps they just want us to continue to support a nation-crippling military presence in Afghanistan.   It is costing us $4 billion a month, roughly $133 million per day, or $5.5 million per hour.

So if you really want to know what’s going on in the world, add good old George Washington to your bookmarks.

    to make him say it, he must have really wanted to be a martyr and take credit for it…


    How many times did it take for Silverstein to confess to it?

    will be sending a trial observer to make sure any evidence that Germany provided will not be used to obtain the death penalty. Germany, as do all EU nations, bans the death penalty.

    Germany to send trial observer to NY

    This trial is a sham. There are questions about the mental stability of the defendants and their ability to participate in their own defense. The prosecutors are not going to be able to keep that out of court because the tribunal judge in Guantanamo made it an issue. This may never get to a jury.

    Is killed in a show trial the answer is not known, but if he was tortured and use it to get out of conviction, two realities will emerge. It’ll be that the Dems(Obama) is weak on/friendly to Terror (to the RW), and to the left it will be proof that Bush/Cheney cornholed America so bad they actually managed to make the terrorists the victims.

    The point of torture IS to break laws and extract false confessions. The points IS to break heads and extract revenge. The point of torture IS torture. They do it cause they can.

    And they did

    What frightening webs we weave.

    This show of a trial is the end run around the criminal justice system….It is a ploy to get KSM and the other declared mentally incompetent to stand trial in a court of law. What better place than NYC. Obama will get what he wants.. a side show that he “respected” the law, the defendants locked away in a highly secure “mental” institution and Bush/Cheney are off the hook for war crimes because the torture will NEVER come out as evidence in a trial. And they ALL get away with not just torture but murder. Clever, aren’t they?

  7. TMC

    to really make your blood boil read these two pieces, one from Glen Greenwald and the other from Jeralyn Merritt at TalkLeft h/t Turkana at TheLeftCoaster. Try a diary on that at DK. Devastating stuff.

    They are acting awfully confident, aren’t they?

  9. TMC

    they chose these defendants and not the others? Obama criticized Bush on the use of military tribunals and even suspended them. Now, he’s done a complete 180. Why? Is the evidence against the others that weak? One of them, Omar Khadr, was a 15 year old boy from Canada who has been held for 7 years without charges. Holder has stated that it depends on the Canadian Supreme Court’s decision whether Kadr will be tried by a military tribunal or extradited to Canada. Well, what does that mean? Sounds very arbitrary to me.

     Read the two articles I linked to in my comment to MoT and see how really outraged you’re gonna get.
