He released a manifesto
in a desperate act to prove his point:
Washington — The self-proclaimed mastermind of the September 11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, has released a manifesto claiming that the Koran forbids the use of violence to spread Islam.
The document, published Tuesday by The Huffington Post and Britain's Channel 4 News, marks Mohammed's first public communication since 2009, when the US government officially accused him of terrorism.
Mohammed, the most high-profile of the five men accused over the 2001 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people on US soil, has been held at the US detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba since 2006.
In a major departure from his previous position, Mohammed said that "the Holy Koran forbids us to use force as a means of converting!"
He also tried in the 36-page document to convince his American captors, prosecutors, lawyers and members of his military tribunal to convert to Islam.
I'll bet there's no Koranic verses in any of the 36 pages to back up his pathetic defense. When will he ever be finally sent to the chair, where his spluttering and whining might prove more interesting?
