WASHINGTON -- 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.
After an extended hiatus, FaxForTruth is back! Our newest campaign will focus on FOX News and Glenn Beck. Beck’s unconscionable defamation of the 9/11 Truth Movement is inexcusable. He must be held to account for what he has done. We must all come together and with one voice show these hate-mongers that this will not stand, that we will defend ourselves collectively against these bullying tactics. We must demand Glenn Beck’s immediate resignation or termination to get this sort of irresponsible journalism off the airwaves. You can use the sample letter provided below or write your own. As always a polite, respectful tone is preferable and you can send a free fax over the internet by going to www.faxzero.com.

Dear FOX News,
In trying to get our ducks in a row for an upcoming 9/11 Truth event in the Dallas area, our group has invited some other groups to set up table displays. We are not asking that these other groups endorse any particular aspect about 9/11 Truth, only that they stand for peace, justice and transparency in government. I was thrilled to hear that the local Muslim Community would be setting up a display for the day of the event. I found inspiration in an article written by Mike Ghouse which will go out to about 22,000 people.
Here is an excerpt:
The Essence of Freedom
Mike Ghouse, Dallas
The essence of freedom is our ability to question; question everything including our belief and what our government dishes out for us to believe.
Truth Action Ottawa got a great response from the public on June 11, 2009. We distributed 300 DVDs in record time and got a lot of people interested in researching 9/11 further. We're out on the street somewhere in Ottawa every 11th, so come join us! Visit http://www.truthactionottawa.com to find out where we'll be next month.

The US military conducted a training exercise in the five days before the September 11 attacks that included simulated aircraft hijackings by terrorists, according to a 9/11 Commission document recently found in the US National Archives. In one of the scenarios, implemented on September 9, terrorists hijacked a London to New York flight, planning to blow it up with explosives over New York.
The undated document, entitled "NORAD EXERCISES Hijack Summary," was part of a series of 9/11 Commission records moved to the National Archives at the start of the year. It was found there and posted to the History Commons site at Scribd by History Commons contributor paxvector in the files of the commission's Team 8, which focused on the failed emergency response on the day of the attacks. The summary appears to have been drafted by one of the commission's staffers, possibly Miles Kara, based on documents submitted by NORAD.
Law and Order SVU season finale features Nick Stahl as deranged artist who believes 9/11 "conspiracies"
I'm sure this episode has no connection to the recent Holocaust museum shootings and trail of yellow journalism that followed, but the season finale of Law and Order SVU featured actor Nick Stahl as Peter Harrison, a deranged artist whose life is transformed by 9/11. I don't have an exact transcript, but at one point in the episode it is noted that Harrison became obsessed with 9/11 conspiracy theories and anti-government ideas.
The relevant dialogue begins around 7:09 of this video.
In his controversial new book, Nick Davies argues that shadowy intelligence agencies are pumping out black propaganda to manipulate public opinion – and that the media simply swallow it wholesale
Onthe morning of 9 February 2004, The New York Times carried an exclusive and alarming story. The paper's Baghdad correspondent, Dexter Filkins, reported that US officials had obtained a 17-page letter, believed to have been written by the notorious terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi to the "inner circle" of al-Qa'ida's leadership, urging them to accept that the best way to beat US forces in Iraq was effectively to start a civil war.
The letter argued that al-Qa'ida, which is a Sunni network, should attack the Shia population of Iraq: "It is the only way to prolong the duration of the fight between the infidels and us. If we succeed in dragging them into a sectarian war, this will awaken the sleepy Sunnis."
