But it does beg credulity that a man whom my pal Will Bunch says looks like Stanley Kowalski in “A Streetcar Named Desire” has been in custody for four years and has just gotten around to spilling all those beans.It seems even more incredible that Mohammed had a hand in 31 terrorist plots in a line of work that is notoriously compartmentalized, and some of his claims are most certainly false.
The release of his confession certainly has nothing to do with trying to divert attention from the dire state of the scandal-sodden Bush presidency. Nooo.
Finally, there is the matter of the U.S.'s own credibility in prosecuting terrorists. How many times have grandiose claims been made by the White House and Justice Department about the dasterdly deeds of alleged terrorists that later had to be rescinded after being scrutinized?
We can expect more of the same after the self-promoting Mohammed is put under the media microscope.More here and here.
