The Real Reason U.S. Won't Put "Mastermind of 9/11" on Trial

By Chris Bollyn,

April 4, 2011 - U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder announces that the alleged "Mastermind of 9/11" and four other terrorists will not face open trial in the United States -- but closed military tribunals in Cuba.  What Holder does not say is that the U.S. has just dropped its indictment of the men accused of carrying out 9/11.  Could it be that the real reason the U.S. dropped the charges against the alleged "Mastermind of 9/11" is that he died - on September 11, 2002?

"News of the death of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was intentionally suppressed..."

Key extracts from "A chilling inheritance of terror" by Syed Saleem Shahzad, Asia Times, 30 October 2002:
KARACHI - Ever since the frenzied shootout last month on September 11 in Karachi there have been doubts over whether Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-proclaimed head of al-Qaeda's military committee, died in the police raid on his apartment. ...

Now it has emerged that Kuwaiti national Khalid Shaikh Mohammed did indeed perish in the raid, but his wife and child were taken from the apartment and handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in whose hands they remain. ...

After this suicide attack, the FBI were onto Shaikh Mohammed in a big way, and, no doubt not entirely without coincidence, on September 11 they decided on a showdown at the apartment of Shaikh Mohammed, his wife and child, in the Defense Housing Authority near Korangi Road. A number of Arabs were also living in the apartment at the time.

Initially, the joint ISI-FBI plan was to take Shaikh Mohammed alive so that he could be grilled, especially as he was believed to have knowledge of other al-Qaeda cells in Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and elsewhere. However, as a plainclothed officer climbed the stairs toward the third-floor apartment, a hand grenade was thrown, and he retreated. Reinforcements then arrived, and for the next few hours a fierce gun battle blazed.

The FBI, still keen to take Shaikh Mohammed alive, teargassed the area, and a number of people were captured. However, despite instructions to the contrary, a few Pakistan Rangers entered the flat, where they found Shaikh Mohammed and another man, allegedly with their hands up. The Rangers nevertheless opened fire on the pair.

Later, the Pakistani press carried pictures of a message scrawled in blood on the wall of the flat, proclaiming the Muslim refrain of Kalma, in Arabic: "There is no God except Allah, Mohammed is his messenger".  An official who was present in the flat at the time of the shooting has told Asia Times Online that the message was written by Shaikh Mohammed with his own blood as his life drained from him. ...

The widow subsequently underwent exhaustive interrogation in the custody of FBI officials, during which she revealed details of people who visited her husband, and of his other contacts and plans. News of the death of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was intentionally suppressed so that officials could play on the power of his name to follow up leads and contacts. 

So, we don't know whether KSM is dead or alive, but the Mayor of New York City certainly does not want to have an open trial for the "Mastermind of 9/11".  It would cost too much, he says.  Might there be another reason the mayor, who is very close to the criminal gang runing the State of Israel, does not want a 9/11 trial in New York?

PARTNERS IN 9/11 AND OTHER CRIMES - Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak (r) with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in Barak's office in Tel Aviv on January 4, 2009 during Barak's criminal military assault, which included using white phosphorus bombs on the defenseless population of Gaza. Some 1,400 Palestinian civilians were killed during the Israeli operation named "Cast Lead", which Bloomberg supported.

"I happen to think that it's probably more appropriate to do it in a secure area with a military tribunal. While we would have provided the security if we had to here in New York City, you know — being spared the expense is good for us."

Aaron with the scapegoat and the Levites

And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness.
- Leviticus 16:21

The Scapegoat (1854-6) by William Holman Hunt

The Scapegoat of 9/11 (2003-11) by U.S. Government

David E. Klett, a retired professor of thermodynamics, had the real Khalid Sheikh Mohammed as a student in several of his classes. When I asked the professor about the person in the photo (above) said to be the terror mastermind of 9/11 and other crimes, Klett said, "I did not recognize that person. I never saw that face before."  So who is this person they tell us is the "Mastermind of 9/11" and why won't they put him on trial in the United States?  Is he simply a scapegoat upon whose head they have laid their sins?  Do Americans care enough to end a decade of deception and war?


It is now being reported that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), the alleged "Mastermind of 9/11", will not stand trial in an open court in the United States but will face a military commission at Guantanamo, where he was tortured 183 times in 2003.  This is a complete travesty of justice, but the Zionist-controlled Obama administration has very good reasons for not letting KSM face trial in an open court.  Putting KSM and the other "terrorists" on trial would expose the pack of lies behind 9/11 and the "War on Terror", which is something their Zionist masters will not let happen.


The Blog of the Legal Times (BLT) has a webpage entitled "In Moving KSM Trial, DOJ Blames Congress" with clickable links to the 5-page nolle prosequi statement with which the U.S. Department of Justice dropped its charges and prosecution against KSM and 4 other "terrorists", and the 81-page unsealed indictment.

Nolle prosequi is a Latin legal term which means "we shall no longer prosecute."  This is a declaration made to the judge by a prosecutor in a criminal case either before or during trial, meaning the case against the defendant is being dropped. The "nolle prosequi" statement is an admission that the charges cannot be proved, that evidence has demonstrated either innocence or a fatal flaw in the prosecution's claim, or the district attorney has become convinced the accused is innocent.  This is how the United States of America dropped its charges against the alleged "Mastermind of 9/11", Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and four other accused terrorists:  Walid Bin Attash, Ramzi Bin Al-Shibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali and Mustafa Al- Hawsawi.


The only reason given in the nolle prosequi statement for dismissing the U.S. indictment and prosecution of the alleged "Mastermind of 9/11" and four other terror suspects is simply ludicrous:  the U.S. is dropping its prosecution of the accused terrorists behind 9/11 because Congress will not pay their airfare from Cuba to the United States!

The statement says that the U.S. cannot put the accused terrorists on trial because Section 1032 of the Ike Skelton National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 (H.R.6523) "bars the use of funds authorized to be appropriated by the Act to transfer the defendants from the United States Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the United States, even for prosecution."
Let's look at exactly what Section 1032 says:


None of the funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act for fiscal year 2011 may be used to transfer, release, or assist in the transfer or release to or within the United States, its territories, or possessions of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or any other detainee who--

(1) is not a United States citizen or a member of the Armed Forces of the United States; and

(2) is or was held on or after January 20, 2009, at United States Naval Station, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, by the Department of Defense.

This is the only reason given in the nolle prosequi statement for dropping the U.S. indictment of the men accused of 9/11:   "In light of this opposition by Congress to a federal criminal prosecution, the Government does not believe there is any reasonable likelihood that the defendants will be tried in the near future," the statement says.  This is clearly not the real reason the U.S. dropped the charges against the "Mastermind of 9/11".

"Because a timely prosecution in federal court does not appear feasible, the Attorney General intends to refer this matter to the Department of Defense to proceed in military commissions," the nolle prosequi statement concludes.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder claims that the Department of Justice is unable to bring these terror suspects to trial in the United States.  This is an utterly false argument that is being presented to the public as a plausible excuse to explain why the alleged "Mastermind of 9/11" will not be tried in an open court to find out what he did and how he did it.  This is because the real masterminds behind 9/11 want a closed military tribunal to be the final chapter in their evil deception.  This is meant to be the conclusion of the 9/11 saga in which the perpetrators kill a scapegoat for the false-flag terror atrocity that changed America and the world.

The New York Times broke the news with an article entitled "In Reversal, 9/11 Plotter to Be Tried by Military Panel", saying:

In a major reversal, the Obama administration has decided to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed for his role in the attacks of Sept. 11 before a military commission at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and not in a civilian courtroom. 

What this means is that there will be NO 9/11 trial, ever.  There will be no trial for the relatives who lost loved ones nor will there be a trial for the man who is accused of being the "mastermind" behind the 9/11 terror atrocity -- and many other acts of terror and mass murder.  The following are some of the crimes that the BBC Profile on Khalid Sheikh Mohammed says he had admitted to having planned and carried out:

The organisation, planning, follow-up and execution of the 9/11 operation;

Responsibility for the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center in New York;

The bombing of nightclubs in Bali in 2002 and a Kenyan hotel in the same year;

Responsibility for the failed attempt by the so-called shoe bomber, Richard Reid, to bring down an American plane;

Plots to attack Heathrow Airport, Canary Wharf and Big Ben in London, to hit targets in Israel, and to blow up the Panama Canal;

A plot to hit towers in the US cities of Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and the Empire State Building in New York, and to attack US nuclear power stations;

Plots to assassinate the late Pope John Paul II and former US President Bill Clinton;

He said he had used his own "blessed right hand" to behead Daniel Pearl, according to Pentagon papers.

Official documents have shown that Mr Mohammed was subjected to waterboarding - or simulated drowning - 183 times in 2003, before this interrogation technique was banned.


Having reported that the man said to KSM has "confessed" to all of the above crimes and is ready to plead guilty and die a martyr, the BBC News aired a two-minute video piece entitled, "9/11 accused to be tried at Guantanamo Bay", that reported the decision with this commentary by Steve Kingstone:

With the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaching, the Obama administration seems to have decided that military justice is better than no justice... But does the rest of America care? ... Polls suggest that most voters can live with the military option.

As I have explained for years, in articles like "Why the 'Mastermind of 9-11' is Kept Secluded", there is one reason the U.S. government can never hold a 9/11 trial for the man they call Khalid Sheikh Mohammed:
The basic reason that there will be no trial for the so-called "Mastermind of 9/11" is because the suspect being held at Guantánamo is neither Khalid Sheikh Mohammed nor the "Mastermind of 9/11", and the U.S. government and military are well aware of that.

To understand the real reason for the Obama administration's about-face on its decision to try the "Mastermind of 9/11" in an open court in the United States, read my articles about the identity fraud concerning the real KSM. The man they call Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the "Mastermind of 9/11" and many other terror crimes and mass murder is nothing but a scapegoat. There can be no judicial process for him or anyone else blamed for 9/11 because it would expose the whole pack of lies behind the deception that changed America.
