Bush regime seeks death penalty for six at Guantanamo
Since no suspect has ever been tried for the 9 /11 false flag attacks, the Pentagon will seek the death penalty for six Guantanamo victims.
And since Osama bin Laden is dead, the Bush regime now says Khalid Sheikh Mohammed -- not Osama -- was the “mastermind” behind 9/11 all along.
The death trials will be held in a cluster of tents known as “Camp Justice” at Guantanamo, and will be secret (no public broadcasts). However survivors and relatives of 9/11 victims will watch through closed-circuit broadcasts. Relatives that support Israel and the Bush regime will be interviewed by the media.
Two-dozen military prosecutors will be led by Army Col. Lawrence J. Morris, who says, “The biggest thing you will see is the methodical, military-like sophistication of the worldwide al Qaeda operation.”
The six chosen victims include
• Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a Kuwaiti of Pakistani extraction, captured in Pakistan in March 2003. The Bush regime now says Mr. Mohammed – not bin Laden – was the “mastermind” behind 9 / 11. Mr. Mohammed was among “high-value detainees” tortured for years at secret CIA dungeons. Last Tuesday, CIA Director Michael Hayden publicly confirmed that Mohammed and other victims were repeatedly waterboarded. Mr. Mohammed confessed (under torture) to plotting 9/11, the 1993 World Trade Center attack, and countless other attacks. (The military will apply 169 charges of terrorism to the six Guantanamo victims.) In 2006 Mohammed was sent to Guantanamo.
• Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, known as Ammar al-Baluchi, a nephew of Mr. Mohammed. Bush calls him Mohammed's lieutenant for 9 / 11.
• Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi. Bush calls him as “assistant” of Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali above.
• Mohammed al-Qahtani. Bush calls him the “20th hijacker.”
• Ramzi bin al-Shibh. Bush calls him the “intermediary between the hijackers and leaders of al-Qaida”
• Walid bin Attash, known as Khallad. Bush says he selected and trained some of the hijackers.
The six victims will be processed by a special tribunal system the Bush regime set up after it murdered 3,000+ Americans on 9/11. Under this special system, hearings are held in secret, defendants are excluded from their own trials, statements made under torture are admissible, and no appeal to an independent court is allowed. In 2006 the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the system. Therefore Congress passed the Military Commissions Act to close legal loopholes.
The legal advisor to the Bush system is Brig. Gen. Thomas W. Hartmann, who now says 9/11 was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s idea, not Osama bin Laden's. Hartmann says the Guantanamo trials will expose a sophisticated long-term plan by the global al Qaeda organization to attack the USA.
Several countries said they would object to the execution of their nationals held at Guantanamo.
The Pentagon says Guantanamo now holds 380 prisoners.
