Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, accused of being one of the key architects of September 11, has apparently revealed the possibility of becoming part of a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia in order to circumvent the death penalty. Muhammad, who previously expressed a wish to die as a martyr, has changed his tone to avoid a death sentence by a military commission at Guantanamo Bay, where he is currently housed.
The lawsuit filed by victims of the September 11 attacks in a New York federal court on Friday implies that Saudi Arabia was involved in the attacks that killed almost 3,000 people nearly 1
Of the 19 identified kidnappers In the September 11 attacks, there were 15 Saudi nationals. In the Friday action, three of the five Guantanamo Bay inmates were charged with involvement in the September 11 attacks. Lawyers for the detainees stated that Muhammad is currently not interested in execution because the death penalty for his alleged crimes is still possible. His lawyers, however, suggested that Mohammed be encouraged to participate if the death penalty was removed from the table.
Muhammad's request to release his life for cooperation in a lawsuit apparently contradicts his earlier desire to die as a martyr. At a 2008 hearing in Guantanamo Bay, Mohammed told the military judge, "I trust in Allah." When the judge informed him that he could be sentenced to death for his crimes, Mohammed corrected the judge that it was not a death sentence but a "martyr's death" for a long time.
In addition to his alleged involvement in killing thousands of people on September 11, Muhammad is suspected of participating in dozens of other terrorist attacks around the world, including the kidnapping and murder of Wall, Street Journal reporter Daniel Muhammad confessed to this and many other crimes, though many can not be proved. "About the death of Pearl, Muhammad said in 2008," With my blessed right hand, I have the head of American Jew Daniel Pearl in the city Karachi, Pakistan, beheaded. "He also provided photographic evidence showing that the person covered in the photo with Perle's murdered body assigns several physical features to Muhammad.
Muhammad was probably born in Pakistan in 1964 or 1965. He should also living in Kuwait, where he joined the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed attended North Carolina Colleges C Howan University and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and received a B.S. 1986 in mechanical engineering. He was reportedly radicalized shortly after his time in the US.
The US, who lived in Qatar in 1996, claimed that Muhammad should be reversed for alleged terrorist activities. Qatar, a longtime rival of Saudi Arabia, opted instead to allow Muhammad to flee to Afghanistan. Mohammed said in a 2007 statement to the Combatant Status Review Tribunal, "I was responsible for the 9/11 operation from A to Z."
