9/11 mastermind defends bin Laden's son-in-law in court statement

By Evan Pérez and Shimon Prokupecz

The admitted mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks has issued a rambling defense of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law, on trial in New York for allegedly being al Qaeda's propagandist in the wake of the attacks.

In a rare statement made public, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed said Sulaiman abu Ghaith - an Islamic preacher whom the United States has charged with conspiracy to kill U.S. nationals and providing material support to terrorists - is falsely accused of being involved in al Qaeda's military activities. Mohammed said abu Ahaith was more of a visiting celebrity who preached the Quran to al Qaeda recruits.

Mohammed's 14-page statement was in response to questions from abu Ghaith's attorney and was filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Sunday night.

    Are you kidding me? Being tortured somehow frees you of the wrongs you committed? You should look up what HET teams are so you can see how are military finds these guys, torture is a standard part of operation you should get over your hippy self and go tell the countless families that lost loved ones because of this guy you want him free because he's "done enough". Weak ones like you should never lead anything besides a department store.
