Example of How Bush Has Hurt the US Government

There was a time when I’d read that the US government had caught a criminal, garnered a confession, and I’d believe it. Apparently, that time has past, because when I read that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed confessed to the 9/11 attacks, my first thought was, “I’d confess to that too if I was being tortured at Guantanamo Bay.”

9/11 mastermind confesses in Guantanamo hearing

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, confessed to that attack and a string of others during a military hearing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to a transcript released Wednesday by the Pentagon.

“I was responsible for the 9/11 operation from A to Z,” Mohammed said in a statement read during the session, which was held last Saturday.

Should I believe that Mohammed was the mastermind behind the attacks based on a torture-based statement?

Are we better off today than we were before torturing him into making that statement?

Where’s Osama bin Laden? Is Bush really sending 20,000-30,000 more troops to Iraq to look for him?

  1. Amen, brother. My first thought when I heard the confession is that a confession given under torture doesn’t count. Anyone will say anything when faced with enough pain. What a great admin…

    Based on the confession, why don’t they bring this Schmuck to the the fifth district of New York and put him up for trial? Are they worried that the “confession” wouldn’t be allowed? Ummm, why not?

  2. I also wonder exactly when he “confessed.” The White House is in a complete shitstorm right now, but I bet this guy “confessed” months if not years ago and they’re trotting this out now.
