Skip to comments.Ahead of 9/11 anniversary, Gitmo photos of mastermind Khalid Sheikh on the web

The first photographs of the self-proclaimed 9/11 mastermind at Guantanamo Bay have cropped up on the Internet, and experts say the images of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed are being used by terrorist groups to inspire attacks against the United States.
The photographs, taken in July by the Red Cross at the Guantanamo detention centre in Cuba, show Mohammed in a white robe, a red-patterned headdress and a long salt-and-pepper beard.
They are the first known images of Mohammed since shot taken upon his capture in Pakistan in March 2003 showing him in a white T-shirt, with disheveled hair and a moustache. Since then, only courtroom sketches from his trial have been available.
The International Committee of the Red Cross, which photographs Guantanamo prisoners as part of its mission to monitor their treatment, confirmed on Wednesday that it took the images in July and sent them to his family. Spokesman Bernard Barrett said the photos were given only to the family and were not intended for public release, but the organisation does not impose conditions on detainee families.

They’re some nasty looking people. They ever thought about cleaning themselves up so they don’t look like homeless bums.
Thanks! I should have looked harder.
It doesn’t matter what he looks like.
It does matter what kind of person he is, how many deaths he caused, and it’s a real shame his photo on the internet is being used for jihadi propaganda purposes.
It’s not a problem.
Why isn’t he with his virgins? That POS should be dead and rtting in hell.
I don’t trust the RCIC as far as I can throw them. They are probably a part of the ACLU ‘John Adams’ group who represent terrorists.

The Red Cross wouldn’t lie or do anything unethical. /s
The Red Cross accused Israel of impeding rescue workers with dirt roadblocks and refusing to grant the Red Cross access to people in need. Israel issued a statement saying that it works in close cooperation with organizations providing aid to civilians.
Bernard Barrett of the International Committee of the Red Cross speaks with Martin Savidge regarding these these claims.
Thank you Red Cross for doing this./sarc They gave the pic(s) to the family.
