Accused al Qaeda mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed complained that interrogators tortured lies out of him
''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.''
Zubaydah claimed in the hearing that he ``nearly died four times.''
''After a few months went by, during which I almost lost my mind and my life, they made sure I didn't die,'' Zubaydah said.
CIA Mistaken on 'High-Value' Detainee, Document Shows
"They told me, 'Sorry, we discover that you are not Number 3, not a partner, not even a fighter,' " said Abu Zubaida, speaking in broken English, according to the new transcript of a Combatant Status Review Tribunal held at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
President George W. Bush described Abu Zubaida in 2002 as "al-Qaeda's chief of operations." Intelligence, military and law enforcement sources told The Washington Post this year that officials later concluded he was a Pakistan-based "fixer" for radical Islamist ideologues, but not a formal member of al-Qaeda, much less one of its leaders.

This really isn't a surprise. After seeing Christopher Hitchens and that radio host get water boarded and each lasting less than 10 seconds, it's no surprise that this guy confessed to whatever he was being accused of.
I'm sure after a few minutes of torture I would confess to killing JFK, arming Saddam Hussein and wiping out the dinosaurs, even if it meant life imprisonment.
He is also thought to have had, or has confessed to, a role in many of the most significant terrorist plots over the last twenty years, including the World Trade Center 1993 bombings, the Operation Bojinka plot, an aborted 2002 attack on the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles, the Bali nightclub bombings, the failed bombing of American Airlines Flight 63, the Millennium Plot, and the murder of Daniel Pearl.

Well as William Cooper pointed out, there was evidence that both Timothy McVeigh and the Columbine Shooters were at one time working under the CIA and if I am not mistaken they were all guinia pigs for RFID chips.

Many of these "terroists" were innocent people with no terroist connections.
So why believe anyone if you can't believe innocent people?
However Mohammed, a Kuwaiti national who was captured in Pakistan in 2003, also freely claimed responsbility for almost 30 "terror" plots, the transcripts say.
