Accused al Qaeda mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed complained that interrogators tortured lies out of him, though he proudly took credit for more than two dozen other terror plots, according to newly released sections of government transcripts.

''I make up stories,'' Mohammed said at one point in his 2007 hearing at Guantánamo Bay.

In broken English, he described an interrogation in which he was asked the location of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

''Where is he? I don't know,'' Mohammed said. 'Then he torture me. Then I said, 'Yes, he is in this area or this is al Qaeda which I don't know him.' I said no, they torture me.''

Yet at the same military tribunal hearing, Mohammed ticked off a list of 29 terror plots in which he took part.

The transcripts were released as part of a lawsuit in which the American Civil Liberties Union is seeking documents and details of the government's terror detainee programs.

Previous accounts of the military tribunal hearings had been made public, but the Obama administration went back and reviewed the still-secret sections and determined that more portions could be released.

Most of the new material centers around the detainees' claims of abuse during interrogations while being held overseas in CIA custody.

Telling someone who is torturing you to tell them what they want to hear... what they want to hear. Sounds like a logical predictable cause and effect. Proof in itself that the majority of the 'official story' is propped up on lies.

Note we only learn of this specific piece of the puzzle because of the ACLU's efforts in pushing the government to release information on terror detainee programs. Makes you question the competency of the 911 Commission now doesn't it? Maybe the ACLU should be assigned to head the new independent 911 investigation?

Honestly, I believe this thread is more about the psychology of the human mind rather than part of the 9/11 conspiracy. But then again, all conspiracies are closely related to psychology.

If any solid information is given by a detainee, the only way to verify it is to actually physically check. There is no doubt that Osama isn't in the same location as he was when the detainee was captured, so location information would be useless.

I'm not going to give my opinion on the torture, but what I will say, is that they need to ask the right questions. And again, I'm sure they are, it's just that the media is just throwing whatever they can to us. This has become such an issue now that the media will use anything they have to their advantage for their personal benefit.

And now that I think about it, maybe a psychiatrist will do better than the soldiers when it comes to questioning. Unfortunately, after all the prisoners have been through, they're minds are probably rock hard and wouldn't succumb to reasoning.

Hi everybody,

Only just joined and here its my two cents worth,

Wow, America tortures people, it's official and that is weak. I thought the US was above that sort of stuff, and shame on the people in charge. Comparisons to the worst regimes in history can be made, history will judge harshly on those involved.

People have different opinions and people can be hypocrites, some believe torture is never justified, others think torture should be allowed in certain circumstances, still others think torture is great and happily kick a cat to death, and there is a range of opinion in between. But does not basic human nature state that when tortured people say what they think will get the torture to stop?!?

And the secret services in the US are pretty expert in torture, they wrote the manual (and instructional DVD). I guess someone is gonna come out and claim that the US does not torture people, but come on, read a few books about foreign policy and open your mind a little.

On a purely semi-intellectual level, the confession does not prove 9/11 2001 is a fabricated story, as a story can be a story which is true or a story which is fictional, but come on, you have mad men running the country, no offense to Obama who seems like a nice person, not.

Power and equality

PS, that is right I am bringing back "not" as a term of sarcasm.

I am starring and flagging this not because I think that the title is right. I am doing it because it shows exactly what I have always known to be true through my psyche classes. What has been proven over and over by the great psychologists of our time.

That TORTURE does not work. It never has and never will. Sure, there will be those that come out and say that we stopped other attacks from information taken while torturing people. Problem is, it's the word of those that have lied to us over and over that I have to question. Cheney and Bush lied many times. They changed their tune many times. I'm sick of the lies in the name of 'National Security'.

It's not about national security. It's about greed and they are hiding behind their national security blanket. I'm sick of it.

Though this doesn't state that 911 was indeed a fabricated story (I happen to believe that much of the official story is a ton of BS), I feel that this goes to show that indeed torture is wrong and the information garnered cannot be trusted. Thus, it's just wrong.

I know full well you're not coming up with this garbage yourself, but from some stupid website telling all sorts of foolish things before directing you to their T-shirt shop. Naturally for self serving con artists, there are huge numbers of things they're not telling you.

The truth is, Osama bin Laden came out on the Al Jazeera network and *admitted* to being behind the 9/11 attack. That's not even counting the fact that we gave our intelligence to our NATO allies showing al Qaida was behind the attack, and they compared it to what their own intelligence services were telling them, and they found it convincing enough to invoke article 5.

To claim Al qaida wasn't behind the attack, it would mean...

a) Al Jazeera is involved in the conspiracy, since they're a favored media outlet for Al Qaida, they certainly have their own methods of authenticating Bin Laden's broadcast

b) Al Qaida is involved in the conspiracy, since if the announcement was faked, they'd certainly come forward and say it was faked, and they haven't

c) NATO is involved in the conspiracy, since they looked at our evidence and publically agreed with it. You do know we're not the only ones in Afghanistan, right?

d) That's not counting just about every *other* country in the world from Japan to Mexico to India, who actively approves and supports our campaign against Al Qaida for the same reason.

SO, either 100,000 people from all over the world are in on the conspiracy to stage the attack, or it really *was* a terrorist attack and all these conspiracy web sites are just plain full of sh*t. I don't think I need to say which one I myself believe it is, do I?

the bin laden admission tape has been confirmed fake. Im not discrediting your whole arguement but just citing facts. The guy in the confession is fatter than bin laden (which could change) but also has a different nose. the 2 people are not one in the same. Also there is a video of him claiming not to be behind the attacks, so all credibility is shot.

"The guy in the confession is fatter than Bin Laden"??? Would you mind terribly explaining this? In the Al Jazeera broadcase he was wearing loose robes, a shawl, and a cap, and with his beard there's no way you could tell if he was fat, thin, or if he just came out of Aushcwitz. Besides, if it wasn't him, Al Qaida would certainly have come forward and told Al Jazeera it wasn't him.

Let me guess...you got all THAT from one of those conspiracy web sites, too. Of course.

I dunno, I can make a casual observation or 2. Even Reuters reported it as 'a man who looks similar to bin laden'.
as isaid the weight is wrong, facial features are wrong, and dexterity is wrong (writes with wrong hand in video).

Where did you get your information from? I'm pretty sure you don't speak the same language and relied on the translation for one. If you do and did say so. I have to rely on what the translator says personally. However the things i mentioned are noticable no matter what your milk tounge is.

??? What ARE you referring to? I'm referring to the Oct 2004 broadcast on Al Jazeera. He didn't write anything during the video. He just sat there and made his announcement. He had a piece of paper on the table in fromt of him, but I don't recall he actually wrote on it.

I got it from the same place the rest of the world did- Al Jazeera. They're the ones who received the broadcast from Al Qaida to begin with, they're the ones who aired it and put the translation on their website, and I have to presume that being the premiere news network representing the Islamic world that they're going to provide us an honest English translation of his broadcast.

As you say, I have to rely on what the translator says personally, milk tongue notwithstanding.

Al Jazeera regularly broadcasts Al Qaida material so they'd have their own methods to prove authenticity, so if the video is fake then it means Al Jazeera is a willing co-conspirator of the secret 9/11 plot to stage a terrorist attack and frame bin Laden, too. Go ahead, then, tell me that Al Jazeera is also in on this Gov't 9/11 conspiracy of yours, too. I double dog dare you.

Good grief, talk about drinking the kool-aid.

That's an important and damning piece of judgement there, Dave.

Well done and thanks.

See, what you've effectively done is label the US media as willing co-conspirators to 9/11 as well.

You claimed that news sources should have their own methods to authenticate material that they broadcast. Well, the US media should have authenticated Aziz ElHallan's story of lies before they let him go to air - live - right?

By applying your same standards to the US media, you've admitted that they should also be suspect in 9/11. The US media showed a fake witness to 9/11, live, on the air.

Aziz's story - given free reign to say what he liked on US TV. Even if it wasn't the truth.

The Mainstream Media used to sell the Government's story.

Thanks for your support on the media issue, Dave. I knew I could count on you to expose the media lies, even the ones on US TV.

It depends on the news sources and it depends on the information being supplied to them. Since Al Qaida likes to give their broadcasts to Al Jazeera becuase they cater to the muslim world, and Al Jazeera likes to broadcast them becuase more people are going to tune in to their station to watch all their other stuff, they're necessarily goign to have some form of authentication method between them. It's the same way cops withhold critical evidence found at a crime scene from the press- when they see it again an another crime scene, they'll know it's really the same guy. Otherwise, the CIA would probably be trying to discredit bin Laden by forging videos showing him having sex with goats, or something.

How long has Aziz El Hallan been using US media for *his* broadcasts?

Come on Dave. Everybody knows that Al Jazeera is a CIA mouth organ half-filled with former BBC journalists. Why else did they come out with pronouncements and videos and audios exactly when Dubya got himself in trouble and needed them most?

Osama has been dead since December 2001 and you know it, and the Bush Regime knew it. They never went after Osama because it is a waste of time and manpower to chase after a dead man who could be buried anywhere.

Besides a dead man works just as well as a live one as a boogeyman to frighten the mindless sheeple. Correct Dave?

That's right Dave. The US Mainstream News Media helped Aziz ElHallan spread a lie and like you said; the US Mainstream News Media is complicit in foisting the lie of 9-11 on the American public and the world.

Aziz is supposed to be down at the Pentagon for 20 minutes; but here he is up at the Naval Annex less than three minutes after the 1st explosion at the Pentagon. This is the 2nd photo Marine photographer Jason Ingersoll snapped as he ran down the hill to the Pentagon snapping photos. Yes Dave it is on the censored list and luckily we had an early copy. Otherwise we might not have caught Aziz in his lie.

Do you think this is sufficient proof Aziz is lying Dave? Do you think the Mainstream News Media should have been competent enough to catch him in that lie Dave? If not why not?

How was Aziz and his car down at the Pentagon and up at the Naval Annex at the same time Dave? How did that alleged piece of Flight 77 hit his car if he was up at the Naval Annex Dave? And why did he have that alleged piece of evidence on Faux News? Was it an ordinary Faux News stage prop with full knowledge of the reporters Dave? Would that be OK with you?

How about posting some sources instead of your rants and un informed information. I hate to be the one to tell you but you are WRONG!


Osama bin Laden:
A dead nemesis perpetuated by the US government
Osama bin Laden is dead. The news first came from sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan almost six months ago: the fugitive died in December [2001] and was buried in the mountains of southeast Afghanistan. Pakistan's president, Pervez Musharraf, echoed the information. The remnants of Osama's gang, however, have mostly stayed silent, either to keep Osama's ghost alive or because they have no means of communication.

With an ego the size of Mount Everest, Osama bin Laden would not have, could not have, remained silent for so long if he were still alive. He always liked to take credit even for things he had nothing to do with. Would he remain silent for nine months and not trumpet his own survival? [New York Times. July 11, 2002]



whatreallyhappened.com...

You can deny the facts all you want. You can say the info is from a toother, twofer, truthers, twoofers web sit all you want. You can call us names all you want. However, there is no denying the facts. Osama Bin Laden is DEAD.


but from some stupid website telling all sorts of foolish things before directing you to their T-shirt shop. Naturally for self serving con artists, there are huge numbers of things they're not telling you.


I don’t need to be entertained by lies, and stop referring all 911 truths come from self serving con artists, selling T-shirts. Where do you get this garbage? The con artists are concealing the truth, you are right about that!
I see it all the time in the government disinfo web sites the FBI web sites, the 911 Commissions STORY, the NIST fairytale. They are the one’s “concealing the truth.”


The truth is, Osama bin Laden came out on the Al Jazeera network and *admitted* to being behind the 9/11 attack.


A lie, a big fat lie.


That's not even counting the fact that we gave our intelligence to our NATO allies showing al Qaida was behind the attack, and they compared it to what their own intelligence services were telling them, and they found it convincing enough to invoke article 5.


Another lie that was told to you and you did not bother researching the truth.
You should stop watching to much Fox News, they are the biggest lying propagandas network in existence.


SO, either 100,000 people from all over the world are in on the conspiracy to stage the attack,


Only you make that assumptions no one else has. Where is the logic in that?



it really *was* a terrorist attack and all these conspiracy web sites are just plain full of sh*t.


No need to curse. Only the disinfo web sites have it wrong.


I don't think I need to say which one I myself believe it is, do I?


Neither do we!

Using Auschwitz in your remark is unforgivable. I am appalled that even you would stoop so low. Adding insult to injury, you did not even have the decency to spell the name correctly. You should truly be ashamed.

To all others, sorry from slipping off topic.

I can not understand why anybody can take the statements taken during the interrogations in Gitmo as any kind of evidence. and even so they could not break 99% of hte tortured prisoners.

s&f for this interesting thread.

also, if you truly believe Osama was not behind the attacks on 9/11....then you're living in a little tiny hole...with tin foil on your head.

Religious extremists attacked us on September 11th, 2001. Stop thinking the government was behind it. Yes, Bush was fully aware of the attacks. However, he planned it? The man that f'd up Iraq carried out the largest attack on the US in ...history? Think again...please...THINK.

Indeed, and a well scripted story....



Can you or anyone please explain the above image Dave?

Edit:
The otherwise meticulous record keepers at the BBC have since 'lost' that footage by the way.
