Former CIA Director George Tenet wrote: “Of all the terrorist takedowns, none was more important or memorable than the capture in Pakistan of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed [KSM, on March 1, 2003]. …No person, other than perhaps Usama bin Ladin [UBL], was more responsible for the attacks of 9/11 than KSM, and none, other than UBL, more deserved to be brought to justice.”
