FLASH! - True Confessions?!

Terrorist Confesses at Guantanamo

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, captured in Pakistan in 2003, has reportedly confessed to killing American reporter Daniel Pearl, and to have masterminded the 9/11 attacks.

Not exactly shocking news for the rest of the country, word of his confession in Western Massachusetts, however - as well as certain parts of California, is sure to bring in rounds of condemnation and protest. Opinion stories and letters to the editor alike will insist that the poor man was brutally tortured at the hands of his heartless American overseers.

"This is an outrage! It's a conspiracy!" - Organization for 9/11 Truth Tellers.

"Only because of our naked depravity has this tragic confession been made." - Valley Progressives for Freedom Fighter Justice.

"It is not true. Khalid is a kind man. He was going to marry my 12-year-old daughter. This is an American trick." - Khalid's brother.

"We don't believe it. We totally reject this so-called confession. It is totally unacceptable." - marketing director for "The 9/11 - CIA Connection: How the Bush Administration Carried Out the 9/11 Attacks with the Aid of Space Aliens."

"No more confessions. Close Guantanamo now! Impeach Bush!" - Copy-and-paste e-mail distributed by the group Move-On-NOW.org, first sent out, July 2002.

My first reaction was that this "breaking news," a few years after the dirtbag was captured, was a convenient deflection of attention away from the federal attorney firings brouhaha and the FBI/NSA trouble of last week for the Bush administration.

Man, the years have made me cynical.

My first reaction was, "we haven't had him commit suicide *yet*??"

Yeah, Bush should implement his 'No Terrorist Left Behind' plan before 2009, just in case. With the clamor by the Democrats to legislate the reversal of 'everything Bush,' who knows what could happen?

The reality is, no matter how folks here in comfy America feel about the death penalty, the culture KSM is spawned from expects swift and sure retribution, and certainly exacts it without mercy upon its own enemies. Anything less is a weakness to be exploited.

Your perspective is refreshing here in Massachusetts, Bill. The lines between black and white get really fuzzy in this neighborhood. If the world situation had been similar 100 years ago, there would be at least some applause for our team.
