Top 9/11 suspects to plead guilty

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/americas/7770856.stm

“[The alleged 911 “masterminds”] said they wanted to withdraw all pending defence motions filed by their court-appointed lawyers and requested “an immediate hearing session to announce our confessions.” The five said they had made their decision “without being under any kind of pressure, threat, intimidation or promise from any party.”

…Mr. Mohammed, believed to have been al-Qaeda’s third-in-command, has already admitted being responsible “from A to Z” for the 9/11 attacks and confessed to being involved in more than 30 terrorist plots around the world…

Following his capture in Pakistan in 2003, Mr. Mohammed was held at a CIA secret prison, where he was subjected to harsh interrogation techniques and a practice known as “waterboarding”, which simulates drowning, until he was moved to Guantanamo Bay two years ago.” (Waterboarding isn’t considered to be “any kind of pressure, threat [or] intimidation”??)
