Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was captured and, according to American scholar and Veterans Today Editor Dr. Kevin Barrett, tortured by FBI and CIA agents into falsely confessing that he was the mastermind behind 9/11, even though he had nothing to do with it.

Dr. Barrett, the author of Truth Jihad: My Epic Struggle Against the 9/11 Big Lie, and editor of the new False Flag Trilogy, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Thursday, after a letter from Khalid Sheikh to former US President Barack Obama surfaced.

The letter, dated January 8, 2015, was addressed to “the head of the snake, Barack Obama.”  But the letter reached the White House in the last days of Obama’s presidency, about two years after it was written, following a military judge ordered the Guantanamo Bay prison authorities to deliver it to the president, reports said.

“Today it was reported that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the alleged 9/11 mastermind, has claimed that 9/11 was the result of hawkish US foreign policy and the countless deaths it has caused,” said Dr. Barrett, who has been studying the September 11, 2001 attacks since late 2003.

“In fact, that’s actually true. But what he didn’t say was that the American hawks who have murdered 55 million people all over the world in military and CIA interventions since World War 2, according to [Noam] Chomsky and [André] Vltchek’s book, On Western Terrorism, are exactly the same people that murdered 3000 Americans, and people from around the world, on September 11, 2001,” he stated.

“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had nothing to do with 9/11 other than being captured and tortured into a false confession,” the analyst asserted.

“He not only confessed to being the 9/11 mastermind, as they read him a script that he had to OK while he was being tortured for two months basically nonstop, but he also confessed a long list of other crimes that he possibly couldn’t have committed, including crimes that happened after he had already been captured,” Dr. Barrett said.

He might as well have confessed to the Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the JFK assassination and a long list of other unsolved crimes,” the scholar said.

“So this is very ironic though that the statement which has been put out by the Western media now in support of the blowback theory of 9/11, that is the theory that 9/11 was in fact done by these 19 Arabs with box cutters — a ludicrous fairytale to say the least — but this blowback theory claims that it in fact was the result of American intervention around the world that got people angry at America and that’s what led to this supposed foreign terrorist attack,” he pointed out.

The September 11 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage.

US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account. They believe that rogue elements within the US government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.

‘US propaganda machine managed to blind the world’

“Now it’s true that people all over the world are angry at America for very good reasons.  In fact, they should be vastly more angry than they are. The American propaganda machine has unfortunately managed to blind much of the world to the egregiousness of American crimes all over the world that have been committed in pursuit of this corporate empire that has essentially taken over much of the world, and looted its resources post-World War II,” Dr. Barrett said.

“So it is true that there is this groundswell of anger against the United States. However, actual people who would fight against the empire are not interested in creating provocations like 9/11 which simply caused the empire to go and behave even worse and kill even more people,” he said.

“Obviously, 9/11 was the worst thing that has ever happened to real Muslim anti-imperialists who are struggling against the American empire. And none of them wanted it to happen,” he stated.

“Strategically, it would make no sense for any radical, anti-US empire Muslim or anyone else to blow up the Twin Towers and Building 7, and create a spectacular publicity stunt that enabled the empire to double its military budget, and charge into the Middle East and destroy numerous Middle Eastern countries on behalf of expansionist Israel,” concluded Dr. Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11.

    • The nanothermite in the dust samples is definitely slam-dunk evidence of a major crime: Either it was used in the demolition (perhaps along with other things) or it was planted in a conspiracy to obstruct justice. There is no third possibility. So a special prosecutor needs to start issuing subpoenas ASAP.

    • It was not the jet fuel, no one argues that except the Gov. That should have been enough to round the criminals and they would have told us.

      Sears Tower next? Who’s the owner, who’s the mare?

  1. What makes the 911 myth so believable, is the fact that Arabs have plenty of reasons to attack the US. That along with anti Semitic Hollywood propaganda…

  2. Kevin: Ever since Gulf War 1 & U.S.-Iraq sanctions destroyed the Iraqi people, Iraqi infrastructure & Saddam Hussein (i.e., 1997+), the Bush/NeoCons, Clinton/NeoLibs & Netanyahu/”Clean Breakers” have needed a Mideast permanent war to justify a U.S.-Mideast raison d’être. 9/11, voilà!

    Thus, your well founded & well reasoned assertions that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other anti-imperial Muslims had nothing to do with 9/11 are no surprise. Subtly and blatantly, MSM = Fake News.

    However, what’s even more insidious now is the foundation for the election & governance of the current U.S. president (Trump), who only ‘appears’ to have been elected based on ‘nationalism versus globalism’ concerns of a winning minority of U.S. voters.

    What U.S. and world citizens now confront is a newly empowered & newly “radicalized” faction of the U.S. Deep State and global ruling elite, who can & will loot America and the world in new & different ways.

    Be Prepared…

  3. I’m surprised they didn’t have him confessing to the Sharon Tate murder.
    As Jesse Ventura once stated regarding torture,” You give me Dick Chaney and one hour and I’ll have him confessing to the Sharon Tate murder.”
    Odd that so many”xtians” support the use of torture. Could it be a throwback to the days of the Spanish Inquisition?
    ” No one expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our main weapons are fear…fear and surprise, two, two main weapons are fear, surprise and ruthless efficiency, ah…three , three main weapons are fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope. Make that four weapons are fear uh,,,,,,”
    Not funny but how long can America continue to claim moral superiority when the rest of the world knows it to be false?
    With Drumpf in the white House no one will be safe. Will journalists be tortured for writing critical articles?
    Will protesters and dissenters be tortured? Will those in congress be tortured for not supporting der Fuehrer?
    We all now live in “interesting times”.
