Khalid Sheik Mohammed killed U.S. journalist Daniel Pearl, report finds
Washington Post ^ | January 20, 2011

Posted on 01/19/2011 9:39:07 PM PST by rdl6989

A recently completed investigation of the killing of Daniel Pearl in Pakistan nine years ago makes public new evidence that a senior al-Qaeda operative executed the Wall Street Journal reporter.

Khalid Sheik Mohammed - the self-described mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, who is being held at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba - said at a military hearing in 2007 that he killed Pearl. But there have been lingering doubts about his involvement, and the United States has not charged him with the crime.

According to the new report, which was prepared by faculty members and students at Georgetown University, U.S. officials have concluded that vascular technology, or vein matching, shows that the hand of the unseen man who killed Pearl on video is that of Mohammed. The report also says Mohammed told the FBI that a senior al-Qaeda operative advised him to take control of Pearl from his original kidnappers.

If you use Hemp rope, the hanging will be Environmentally Responsible as well and you will end up with Soylent Jihadi.

NO!!!! Muslims welcome a quick departure from this world. They need to be shown how slowly and painfully they will die when we capture them. Suicide is their cowardly way OUT! KSM should be trotted out twice a year to show he’s alive AND suffering the humiliations of captivity. As should ALL of the captured. THEN maybe those considering a terrorist attack will see the futility in their effort.

Do you really believe this? I seriously doubt that other Muslim cowards are contemplating the evils of their ways because KSM is in captivity. If you really want to see an end to their cowardly Islamo-facism, then, IMHO we need to completely destroy their seats of power, and go on destroying their cities until they sue for mercy.

I was kind of thinking an old piece of sun weathered nylon rope, it'll cut/burn your hands really bad and leave little shards of nylon embedded if you're not wearing leather gloves........just saying.

In the Novel Shogun, one of the Samurais betrays his master.

They buried him up to his neck, with a serrated bamboo saw attached to his neck. The Village Women would come by and pull the saw one direction and then the other in a slow and deliberate way. Eventually, the man died, but it took a very long time.

I think it was the definition of the term, “death by a thousand cuts”. Of course, the part of the Novel where they boiled the English Sailor alive wasn't too pretty.

The 31,000-word report, published in conjunction with the Center for Public Integrity is among the most complete and graphic accounts of Pearl's death.

It took 31,000 words to say what KSM confessed to in 2007? Yikes! 31,000 words is the equivalent of over 51 (double yikes) 600-page books. Of course, the Leftists in and out of academia will believe this report because it comes from Georgetown U. They would not believe KSM's confession, however, because, as the article says, he was waterboarded 183 times by the CIA. Also according to the article, prosecutors are afraid to charge KSM with the murder of Pearl because of the waterboarding.

I sometimes wonder how we continue to survive as a country with about 45% of the population consistently voting Dem and being this stupid.

Right. That’s why homicide bombings are on the rise. Look, I’m not looking to argue with you. It is my opinion that putting that piece of rat excrement to death is not only just, but appropriate. Keeping him alive is not. Those who are out to attack our country and our allies don’t give a rat’s @rse one way or the other.

Next, he will be taking credit for the assassinations of RFK, JFK and Lincoln.

However, the POS needs to be put down.

And for all those POS floating in toilets and sewers, I’m sorry for the comparison.

Everytime I see something like this, I'm reminded of why there are relatively smart people executing our wars, while people like you are sitting in front of your computers yelling stupid ideas into the black hole of the internet.

Seriously, "go on destroying their cities until they sue for mercy?" Is this your plan for stopping terrorist attacks against the USA?

Terrorism from Islam is never going to stop. Never. Understand this. It won’t stop until they have killed you or subjugated you.

Don’t cringe from doing bad things to Islam simply because you fear the consequences. The consequences of not doing bad things to Islam is unspeakable horror.

The Muslims in the ME don’t understand Christian charity. They don’t understand why we stay our hands. They truly believe that we are scared to attack Mecca and Medina because we are ‘scared of Allah’.

If we want to show them the error of their ways, I suggest we demonstrate that this isn’t the case.

After the next Beslan or 9/11 atrocity in which the US is a target - we bomb no-one. We identify the terrorists’ Mosque(s) of origin and pump them full of pig slurry.

On the next atrocity vs US citizens of whatever size; same drill. Find the Mosque and insert the pigshit.

If we end up dropping plane-loads of aerosolised pig-crap on the Kaaba, so be it.

Yes, fear and ird-shame will drive Muslims all over the world into fanatic rages. We will get through one frack-load of pig offal. A lot of people would die.

But remember - this is all done after the next Beslan or 9/11. Children sodomised and then killed. Thousands of office workers burnt or crushed to death. We would have to escalate, and this is a way which would be relatively humane - and one which would boost America’s farming industry.

Oh, how very nice. Let's tell them exactly how we know who committed the crime.

Next time, the snuff filmmakers will be sure to wear gloves.

Why did we need anything more than a confession, anyway? How many times do we need to have the lawyers come out and convict the guy?

Islam - or, rather, Islam is at war with us. They've been at war with us for 30+ years. But, being the “civilized” nation that we are, we missed this little fact for a long time. Even when they finally brought the war to the forefront (Two embassy bombings, the Kobar Towers, The U.S.S. Cole, WTC/Pentagon), we still haven't recognized it for what it is. We will not defeat this enemy without seriously taking the fight directly to them. I'm afraid that our level of “civilization” will be our undoing.

IMHO, hyperbole always has a place in political discourse. It's especially effective in getting attention and rousing people from a slumber. I don't know whether or not agere_contra is serious about bombing moslem shrines with pig offal, and that's really beside the point. What he IS 100% accurate about is that for the moslems, this is a religious war, and until we start taking it as seriously as they do, we're not going to deter them from their continued aggression toward us.

Like the Japanese of WWII, these are people perfectly willing to fight and die for their *god*. In the end it took two atomic bombs to shake their faith.

The problem with people like you is that you are unwilling to have an honest conversation regarding the war we are in, and the enemy we are facing. You have accepted the mantra of a kinder, more gentler war (world), while at the same time discounting the fact that the enemy we face, while not contained or constrained by the boundaries of a state, is more than willing to decapitate you using a dull blade (i.e., Nick Berg), and will gladly die for their cause. I raise the spector of WWII, not just because of what it took to end the Japanese desire to go out fighting and dying, but also to bring home the point that these same Islamist of today are the ones who fought on the side of Hitler in WWII. We are still fighting a war that was begun over 60 years ago, but most of the sheople of today are too damned stupid to recognize this. If you really care to educate yourself, perhaps you should spend some time listening to the words of Congressman West from Florida.

Oh, and I should also have commented on your inane (or, perhaps, insane) notion of Islam not being a nation. The longer people in this country continue that line of thought, the more Islam moves across the globe in their plans of complete domination. You don’t think so? Read the damned koran. This book is their offensive play book, and they are implementing it on a daily basis.

IIRC, the muzzombies fear execution by hanging worse than any other method.

Seems that for muzzies choking off the esophagus prevents the soul from exiting the body and dooms it from ever achieving paradise. This is why they reserve hanging for their mosted hated victims (Jews, Christians, Hindus, Baha’is, etc.)

And yes, we “infidels” should destroy Islamic centers of power, starting with the obliteration of Mecca, which alone will throw the world’s muzzies into chaos as they realize their “allah” can’t even protect his most sacred city.
