Bin Laden Associates Show No Remorse in Statements

Saturday, 22 Mar 2014 12:43 PM

 

Al-Qaida's self-professed Sept. 11 mastermind and an imam who met with Osama bin Laden in a cave soon after the attacks show no signs of having softened their views toward America.

Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Sulaiman Abu Ghaith made recent public statements showing they believe the attacks were justified. Mohammed's words emerged in a written statement responding to hundreds of questions from a lawyer for Abu Ghaith. Abu Ghaith testified in Manhattan federal court at his trial on charges he conspired to kill Americans and aid al-Qaida.

Mohammed still boasts that the Taliban was good for Afghanistan and that everything bin Laden said was right. Mohammed is held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Closing arguments in Abu Ghaith's trial are slated for Monday.
