Top 9/11 suspects to plead guilty
Alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four co-defendants have said they want to plead guilty at a pre-trial hearing at Guantanamo Bay.

But Mr Mohammed said he would postpone entering his plea until an investigation into the mental state of two of his co-defendants is complete.

Military Judge Col Stephen Henley had ordered the probe into whether the two were mentally competent to stand trial.

The five men face death sentences if convicted of roles in the 2001 attacks.

Correspondents say no trial date has been set and there seems little chance that one will begin before President-elect Barack Obama takes office.

He has said he is opposed to the military tribunal and has pledged to close down the detention centre at Guantanamo Bay.

'No intimidation'

For the first time, nine relatives of the 9/11 victims were flown to Cuba by the US military to watch Monday's pre-trial hearing.
Amid heavy military security, they sat in court behind a glass screen only yards from Mr Mohammed and his four co-defendants, shielded from the media by a blue curtain.

At the opening of the proceedings, the military judge read aloud a letter in which the men said they wanted to withdraw all pending defence motions filed by their court-appointed lawyers and requested "an immediate hearing session to announce our confessions."

The five said they had made their decision "without being under any kind of pressure, threat, intimidations or promise from any party," Col Stephen Henley told the court.

One would have to question the timing of this. Why would you want to confess now? Bush is out in a few weeks and pres elect states he wants to shut down the gulag in Cuba. What is to gain? Why wouldn't they confess at the outset, proud of their accomplishments of scaring the US into draconnian measures. After all wasn't that the point of the excersise? Real terrorists go down smirking like Carlos the Jackal or Abu Nadal. The CIA needs to hire a better class of patsies.

I forwarded the Summary of the PentaCon Video to Eric Edelman, Undersecretary for Policy at the Pentagon.

Yesterday, as an ACLU member, I spoke with the ACLU team who are at Guantanamo for the Hearings. I pointed out that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the others were pleading "Guilty" to plannng something they could not possibly have done, because it never happened.

Cheney deserves a fair trial. As an Amnesty International member, I would oppose any death penalty, of course.

What amazes me about all this is that every Intelligence Agency in the civilized world knows that the "Official Conspiracy Theory" is a blatant lie (or rather, series of lies).

This necessarily includes NSA, DIA and CIA.

On 3 June 2004, half an hour after the Chief FOIA Officer at the Pentagon told me with a voice like polished steel: "Tony, _there was no Boeing_", George Tenet announced his "surprise" resignation. There will be more.

Magnificent work, you guys. Don't let them get away with it.

What is interesting is that they "pledge allegiance" to Bin Laden. I find that pledging allegiance is in today's world is uniquley American. the history of this practice would surprise you. Romans, socialists and Nazis all adopted pledging allegiance. Also America's brown shirt squads are forced to do the same, scouts. An American run operation would think nothing odd about it as they would have been indoctrinated into it.

3 Guantanamo detainees withdraw offer to confess

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Three of five Guantanamo Bay detainees who said they wanted to confess to charges relating to the September 11 terrorist attacks rescinded the offer after a judge required two to undergo competency hearings, according to a military spokesman.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed -- the confessed architect of the attacks who was captured two years later in Pakistan -- and four other alleged co-conspirators asked a military judge Monday whether they could withdraw all pending motions and plead guilty to conspiracy and murder charges, Maj. Gail Crawford said in an e-mail.

The military judge initially accepted the requests from Mohammed, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali and Walid bin Attash but ruled that competency hearings are first needed for Mustafa al-Hawsawi and Ramzi Bin al-Shibh, because "questions exist as to their competency to stand trial," Crawford said.

After the judge made that ruling, Mohammed, Ali and Attash rescinded their offer to plead guilty.

It has not been determined whether the defendants, formally charged in June, will face a potential death sentence.

The defendants announced their decision in front of relatives of victims in the al Qaeda-orchestrated attacks, said Jennifer Daskal, senior counterterrorism counsel for Human Rights Watch. She attended Monday's hearing.

The five are among the defendants in a heavily scrutinized proceeding that experts say may serve as a bellwether for future hearings involving foreign fighters.

The commissions have been delayed for years by legal challenges, and the U.S. Supreme Court ruled an earlier version of them unconstitutional in 2006.

"What should have been a major victory in holding the 9/11 defendants accountable for terrible crimes has been tainted by torture and an unfair military commissions process," Daskal said Monday.

"This is the government's last hurrah," she said, referring to the final weeks of the Bush administration's second term, which ends January 20.

GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba, Dec. 8 -- Five of the men accused of planning the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks said Monday that they wanted to plead guilty to murder and war crimes but withdrew the offer when a military judge raised questions about whether it would prevent them from fulfilling their desire to receive the death penalty

Well this would certainly appear to support the "Allah and the 72 virgins" M$M fairy tale...

EDIT: M$NBC went into it quite a bit last night too.

right - it would appear so...

The true story might be:

The deal was -
confession of guilt -> death penalties -> faked executions (like with Saddam) -> new identities and some $$$ for everybody -> and happiness among the stupid sheeple cheering the outgoing and the new President.

Now some military judge has spoiled it.

Either that or they are so sick and tired of being tortured, it would be a relief to die. But if they arent going to get that relief (death penalty), why "confess"?

Every time there is a video or message from al qaida it is always beneficial to the bush regime. This little bit of propoganda is to set the stage to give the impression that their GWOT worked. Who is telling you that these 5 want to confess? The torturers that's who. Now everyone go Chistmas shopping and leave the nasty business of torturing to the professionals.

I cannot help but think that the recent pleadings and withdrawals are but high theater.

AQ is but a tool of the CIA.

Great post! It's fascinating when you think about how humans are controlled and manipulated.

Understanding that it is possible to influence the way humans think. They control what the people see and hear, thereby manipulating the way people think. Isn't that what magicians do?
