The self-proclaimed mastermind of the September 11 attacks wrote to former president Barack Obama to tell him 9/11 was a direct result of American foreign policy and the deaths of innocent people it has caused.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s 18-page letter was addressed to “the head of the snake, Barack Obama,” leader of “the country of oppression and tyranny.”

Defense attorney David Nevin provided a copy of the letter, which has not yet been posted on the US military’s website for Guantanamo proceedings. He told AFP that Mohammed began writing it in 2014.

The letter is dated January 8, 2015, but reached the White House only two years later in the last days of Obama’s presidency, according to news reports, after a military judge ordered the Guantanamo prison camp where Mohammed is held to deliver it.

“It was not we who started the war against you in 9/11; it was you and your dictators in our land,” he wrote.

He says God was on the side of the hijackers on that fateful day when airplanes were guided into the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania.

“Allah aided us in conducting 9/11, destroying the capitalist economy, catching you with your pants down, and exposing all the hypocrisy of your long-held claim to democracy and freedom,” Mohammed wrote.

Listing many grievances over America’s “brutal and savage massacres” from Vietnam to the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Mohammed focused his rage on the plight of Palestinians and US support for Israel and the “occupier Jews.”

“Your hands are still wet with the blood of our brothers and sisters and children who were killed in Gaza,” he wrote in the opening paragraph.

– ‘The truth about death’ –
Along with the letter, Mohammed sent a 51-page manuscript entitled “Shall I Die when the Crusaders Carry out the Death Sentence? The Truth about Death.” It is illustrated with an image of a noose.

Mohammed, who faces a potential death sentence for allegedly masterminding the plane hijackings that killed almost 3,000 people, says he is not afraid of dying.

“I speak about death happily!” he wrote.

Mohammed was waterboarded 183 times in March 2003 and held at a secret CIA prison site overseas.

In the letter, he explained that “if your court sentences me to life in prison, I will be very happy to be alone in my cell to worship Allah the rest of my life and repent to Him all my sins and misdeeds.”

“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 Sheikh Osama Bin Laden,” he added, referring to the late Al-Qaeda leader killed in a US raid in 2011 in Pakistan.

    Conspiracy

    If you think people can be deceived, God cannot be deceived. Who is behind 9/11? Some of the 19 hijackers mentioned were a live and did participate in the operation, while some of them had lost their lives before the incident. Why the four black boxes echoed the same message? Some Americans observed that bombs had been placed in some strategies positions before the incident, not the plane that grounded the twin towers. Why 4,000 officials, of the same tribe, sold their shares before that day, were not there on that day?
    They like to cause problems (to get support from their people) and instigate the war, in order to invade and destroy another countries for their interest.

      You’re an absolute pathetic excuse for a human being. You’re calling for the murder of innocent human beings. You’re just as disgusting and reprehensible as any terrorist and you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. I’m ashamed to admit I share the same species as a worm like you.

      • tophat1234

        LOL at thinking I care about your opinion LOL. You are an absolute pathetic excuse for a human being. Yes, since these people think dying by blowing themselves up and a bunch of innocent people with them is great in Allahs eyes. The only way to stop them is to kill their families. Life isn’t fair. They could always stop committing terrorism and then their families wont be killed. But ya go wave your little rainbow flag and pretend your little liberal hugs and marches will stop them from blowing your family and friends up. Now run along you failed human.

    He is exactly right about US atrocity worldwide, and its horrifying effects, which finally came back around on 9/11. It is in no way patriotic or pro-American to deny or avoid this fact. Our most conservative analysts had been predicting it for years. It happened.
