The Pentagon has released papers submitted by five Guantanamo detainees implicated in the attacks on 9-11-2001. The papers were written to the war crimes court at Guantanamo.
In the papers, the writers proclaim that they are “terrorists to the bone”, and that the charges of war crimes are “badges of honor, which we carry with pride.”
“Your intelligence apparatus with all its abilities…failed to discover our attack plans before the blessed 11 September operation…Why then should you blame us, holding us accountable and putting us on trial.”
They said, “Islam is a religion of fear for Jews, Christians and Pagans.”
It remains to be seen how the new administration will handle terror suspects’ trials. Guantanamo is scheduled to be shut down in less than a year.
