Ron Jeremy confesses to planning 9/11

Whoops. I mean Khalid Shaikh Mohammed (but the resemblance...)

"'I was responsible for the 9/11 Operation, from A to Z', he said.

He also reportedly confessed to planning to attack Big Ben and Heathrow airport in London, at the hearing at the US Guantanamo Bay camp in Cuba.

The hearing was the first time the Pakistani national had faced a court since being captured four years ago."

This guy's been in CIA black sites (shudder) and eventually Guantanamo Bay for the last 4 years. I think by now he'd tell them he was the fucking easter bunny if that's what they wanted to hear. There was always plenty of evidence that he was the prime suspect behind 9/11 -- there's only so much plausible information you can squeeze out of a guy, 4 years seems like a long time to be waterboarding someone.

Silly me update: I thought this was kind of recycled news; the guy confessed years ago. But it does momentarily get Abu Gonzales off the front pages.
