On Wednesday, The Miami Herald reported that the alleged mastermind behind the September 11th terror attacks against the United States penned an angry letter to former President Barack Obama from the Guantanamo Bay detention center and sent it just before Trump took office. Khalid Sheik Mohammed, often referred to as KSM, wrote a 18 page letter to former President Obama blaming the United States for bringing on the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on itself.
“It was not we who started the war against you in 9/11,” KSM wrote, addressing Obama as “the head of the snake” and president of “the country of oppression and tyranny.”
The letter was dated January 2015 but didn’t make it to the White House until days before Obama left office after a military judge ordered it to be sent.
KSM stated that he does not mind whether he is punished with life in prison or with death because either way will be good for him.
“I will be happy to be alone in my cell to worship Allah the rest of my life and repent to Him all my sins and misdeeds,” KSM said.
“And if your court sentences me to death, I will be even happier to meet Allah and the prophets and see my best friends whom you killed unjustly all around the world and to see sheik Osama bin Laden,” he continued.
KSM also criticized Obama as “a smart attorney” that is “well acquainted with human rights” but did not treat Osama Bin Laden as a human upon his death.
KSM said Obama “can kill his enemy without trial and throw his dead body into the sea instead of giving him to his family or respecting him enough to a human being to bury him.”
The Miami Herald obtained the letter from KSM’s lawyers. KSM began writing the letter in 2014 after Israel had an offensive in the Gaza Strip that killed civilians.
KSM opened the letter to Obama telling the former President that his “hands are still wet with the blood of our brothers and sisters and children who were killed in Gaza.”
His military attorney, Marine Maj. Derek Poteet, says Mohammed is “upset at U.S. foreign policy and he plainly perceives that the United States has signed a blank check to Israel.”
