More on the KSM Confessions

In addition to Jonathan’s post below, there are other reasons to think something is fishy with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s confessions. Kyle Hence at the 9/11 Citizens Watch puts it this way: “For a number of reasons I am just not buying this so-called confession by KSM. Why can’t we hear the audio of the so-called confessions? And why is it no one in the media or general public, not a single person, has a seen but two photos of this man and not a single clip of video? Think about it. It’s been three years since his capture and we have only two photos of the man whose story was at the core of the 9/11 Commission Report. Why are there no cameras, even military ones, in the tribunal courtroom? Were there no photographers, even military photographers, on the flight that transferred him to Guantanamo? What national security concerns could possibly nix cameras or digital audio recorders from documenting the professed ‘mastermind’ of the worst terrorist attack in history?”

Readers: Any idea what’s going on here?
