Maybe He Did C, F and R...

Maybe I watch too many movies. Maybe as a writer I can't help but to NOT take things at face value and instead allow my imagination to get away from me, creating fantastical versions of truth.

Maybe I have trust issues with the current Administration. But whatever it is, I find it hard to believe that we actually have, in our possession, the person responsible for EVERY TERRORIST ATTACK EVER who is more than willing to fess up to everything...and show remorse:

By ANDY SOLTIS, New York Post

March 15, 2007 -- Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, confessed to that atrocity and a string of other major al Qaeda attacks, according to a chilling transcript of a closed-door hearing released last night.

"I was responsible for the 9/11 operation, from A to Z," Mohammed boasted during his appearance at the U.S. military prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Mohammed compared himself to George Washington as he claimed responsibility for planning, financing, and training a string of other attacks, including the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and the horrific blast at a Bali nightclub in 2002 that killed 202 people.

In a bizarre, rambling confession he also boasted of playing the major role in al Qaeda plots that failed.

These including attempts to assassinate Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and the bid by would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid to blow up a trans-Atlantic flight with explosives hidden in his shoes.

He denied he was "making myself [a] hero" but portrayed al Qaeda as a valiant band of Muslim fundamentalists.

"When we made . . . war against America, we are jackals fighting in the nights," he said in his first statement made public.

He accused the U.S. of starting every war it took part in and said it was bound to suffer fatalities.

"It's your war," he declared.

But he added, "I'm not happy that 3,000 [were] killed in America," referring to the 9/11 victims. "I feel sorry, even. I don't like to kill children and kids."

In all, Mohammed said he was responsible directly or in part for 31 attacks.

Excuse me? Do I look like I fell off the Hillbilly truck with my brother/uncle/husband and 12 inbred children??

And don't give me that, "people are capable of remorse" bullshit. And I especially don't want to hear that our intelligence operatives did a really stellar job and found the culprit. Because I don't own a shovel big enough to dig out of that mess.

I will, however, give dude props for sticking to his guns:

Before he launched his broken-English speech, he refused to take an oath because that would mean "that I'm accepting American Constitution, American law or whatever you are doing here."

This man is a scapegoat. Because Bush and his League of Extraordinary Idiots started a war they cannot win and cannot end. And Bin Ladin is chillin somewhere in South Beach with a harem of hoes LAUGHING HIS ASS OFF!

Don't get me wrong- I love this country. Any other place would probably not allow me to write so brazenly against the elected officials chosen to represent me to the world. Only in America can I write, "G.W. is a slack-jawed yokel redneck" and get a way with it.

But sometimes, man, I just don't know...
