And it has nothing to do with the waterboarding, cattle prods or sleep deprivation – they just wanted to get it off their chest

The government is set to wheel out five more tortured detainees in a desperate effort to prop up the thoroughly discredited official 9/11 story, including another appearance for the ultimate patsy – Khalid Sheik Mohammed.
“Five detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, say they want to confess to conspiracy charges for planning the September 11, 2001, attacks, a Pentagon spokeswoman said Monday,” reports CNN.
“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 if they could withdraw all pending motions and plead guilty, Maj. Gail Crawford said in an e-mail.”
“The military judge accepted the requests from Mohammed, Ali Abdul Azziz 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.”

The new set of “confessions” will hold about as much credibility of those of purported “9/11 mastermind” Khalid Sheik Mohammed when he first spilled the beans in March 2007, After only five years of torture, KSM confessed to nearly everything under the sun, only stopping short at accepting responsibility for killing Kennedy, creating AIDS and being the real Santa Claus.
Indeed, KSM was so keen on never seeing a cattle prod again that he even confessed to being responsible for attacking banks that were founded after his arrest, seemingly invoking the power of long range telekinesis to commit his dastardly deeds.
KSM mentioned the “Plaza Bank” by name despite the fact that it only came into existence in 2006, three years after his arrest. Either KSM has the power to influence objects with his mind or we were lied to, but the media and the government would never do that, would they?
Medieval Justice: A little encouragement and the confession was obtained!
After all, it’s a reasonably safe bet to 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 seven years rests on maintaining the orthodoxy of the official 9/11 myth.
And it’s a safe bet in the case of the Gitmo detainees – the waterboarding, the sleep deprivation and the beatings have got nothing to do with it, these guys simply want to get things off their chest and tell the truth about their role in 9/11.
I’m sure being chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor for 18 hours or more a day, urinating and defecating on themselves, led in no way whatsoever to the detainees telling their captors whatever they wanted to hear.
In reality, polls at the time showed a massive 74% disbelieved KSM’s numerous confessions and the same skepticism is likely to emerge this time around, but not with any influence from the corporate media, who are happily playing up the “confessions” and taking them as gospel without stopping for a second to question if they were obtained through torture.
