Bloviating Zeppelin: What We Knew, Now Confirmed

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

What We Knew, Now Confirmed

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

In a section of the statement that was blacked out, he confessed to the beheading of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, The Associated Press has learned. Pearl was abducted in January 2002 in Pakistan while researching a story on Islamic militancy. Mohammed has long been a suspect in the killing.

Using his own words, the extraordinary transcript connects Mohammed to dozens of the worst terror plots attempted or carried out in the last 15 years—and to others that have not occurred."

Thousands died in operations he directed.

Mohammad said:

- Al-Qaida wanted to take down a second trans- Atlantic aircraft during shoe bomber Richard Reid's operation
- He was involved in planning the 2002 bombing of a Kenya beach resort frequented by Israelis and the failed missile attack on an Israeli passenger jet after it took off from Mombasa, Kenya. - - He also said he was responsible for the bombing of a nightclub in Bali, Indonesia. In 2002, 202 were killed when two Bali nightclubs were bombed.
- He planned attacks against the Sears Tower in Chicago, the Empire State Building and New York Stock Exchange, the Panama Canal and Big Ben and Heathrow Airport in London.
- He said he was involved in planning assassination attempts against former Presidents Carter and Clinton, attacks on U.S. nuclear power plants and suspension bridges in New York, the destruction of American and Israeli embassies in Asia and Australia, attacks on American naval vessels and oil
tankers around the world, and an attempt to "destroy" an oil company he said was owned by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger on Sumatra, Indonesia.
- He also claimed he shared responsibility for assassination attempts against Pope John Paul II and Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed said he was responsible for planning 28 attacks and assisting in three others.

I saw this on Fox News this morning. I wonder if he's going to recant his testimony, saying he was tortured into confessing. I wouldn't be surprised!

I'm not posting. Just taking a break to visit a few people. :)

How many more of these people could we have caught if we had only stayed on the right track?

Gayle: it appears he's in the process of doing precisely that now that his statements are in the public venue.

Ranando: good darned question.

I don't believe him any more than I did when he denied responsibility for this stuff.
