Guantánamo Bay Detainees Admit Planning 9-11 and are proud of it

March 10, 2009

(ChattahBox) — While President Obama halted the military proceedings at Guantánamo Bay in the first days after his inauguration, it left cases on hiatus until the government decides how it will proceed.

Five of those detainees who are charged with planning the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks have filed a document with the military commission at the United States naval base there expressing pride at their accomplishment and accepting full responsibility for the killing of nearly 3,000 people, according to a NY Times Report.

The five men include  the supposed mastermind of 9-11, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, his nephew Ali Abd al Aziz, who is also known as Ammar al Baluchi, Ramzi bin al Shibh, Walid Muhammad Bin Attash and Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi.

The document titled “The Islamic Response to the Government’s Nine Accusations,” which may be released publicly on Tuesday, says their actions were an offering to God, according to excerpts of the document that were read to a reporter by a government official who was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

The strategic goal of the five men in making the new filing last week, was not clear, but it gives pause to ever letting these men out of detention.
