Guantanamo detainees say they planned September 11: report & excerpts
Of course there were Islamic planners inside the 9/11 circle. That has absolutely no relationship to all the extensive pre-warnings provided by numerous governments to the US/Bush Administration before the attacks. Nor does it have any relationship to the complete failure of following established procedures for over two hours to intercept the "hijacked" aircraft. Nor does this have anything to do with the Able Danger stand down six months before, or the first ever in history steel frame buildings to fail from a fire.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The five detainees at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison camp charged with plotting the September 11 attacks have filed a document expressing pride at their accomplishment and accepting responsibility for the deaths of nearly 3,000 people, The New York Times reported on Monday.
The document, which the newspaper said may be released publicly on Tuesday, describes the five men as the "9/11 Shura Council," and says their actions were an offering to God, according to excerpts of the document read to a reporter by an unidentified government official, the report said.
"'To us,' the official read, 'they are not accusations. To us they are a badge of honor, which we carry with honor,'" the paper said.
The document is titled "The Islamic Response to the Government's Nine Accusations," the military judge at the U.S. Naval base said in a separate filing, obtained by the Times, that described the detainees' document.
The document was filed on behalf of the five men, including Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who has called himself the mastermind of the attacks.
Some of the men had said earlier that they planned the 2001 attacks and that they wanted to be martyrs. The reason for the new filing, which the report said reached the military court on March 5, was not clear. The brief court order describing the filing said the men sought no legal action.

With regards to these nine accusations that you are putting us on trial for; to us, they are not accusations. To us they are badges of honor, which we carry with pride.
