Sheikh, Rattled and Rolled

The big news of the week is that a major terrorist mastermind confessed to many attacks, and the planning of others, but the confession must leave much to be desired in the minds of many.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, confessed to that attack and a chilling string of other terror plots during a military hearing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to a transcript released Wednesday by the Pentagon.

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

Don’t people know that Mohammed only “confessed” because the CIA tortured him so as to have a fall guy to cover up the fact that Bush orchestrated 9/11 in a secret plot to drive his own approval ratings into the dirt?

Not possible? Well remember, this is the same president who used the “terrorist attack” as a reason to go into Iraq, but who didn’t have the foresight to make any of the mythical hijackers Iraqi. What a poorly planned plot! Or maybe there was no plot — Nah, there was a plot, and it was underwritten by The Apple Dumpling Gang.

Update: Rosie O’Donnell soars to the height, not to mention weight, of innane leftist whiffle-brained tripe by worrying that calling Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a “terrorist” is robbing him of his humanity. Oh my.
