In His Confession, Is Mohammed Exaggerating His Role?

Hosted by

Today's papers report the written confessions of the man who claims he was not only the mastermind of September 11, but also responsible for 30 other terror attacks and plans to attack. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's confession was made at what's called a "combatant status review tribunal," held in secret last weekend at Guantánamo Bay.  The Pentagon says part of his story was withheld to notify the family of the late Wall Street Journal reporter, Daniel Pearl. Mohammed says he was the man who beheaded Pearl five years ago in Karachi.
