“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged architect of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, ‘voluntarily’ admitted to an FBI agent that the plan had been to hit the White House or the Capitol as well as the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.

The ‘confession’ by the man said to have been the operations director of al-Qaeda was given during an interrogation in 2007 at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre in Cuba, Frank Pellegrino, a retired FBI agent, told the latest pre-trial hearing for Mohammed and the other 9/11 accused. A date has not been set for the full trial.

‘When we went in to speak to him, we were very comfortable that he was speaking to us voluntarily, given every opportunity to walk away.’ Pellegrino [said].”
