Blue Peter Vandal Confesses

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who has been in custody since he was captured in March 2003 and appears to have been a victim of "water-boarding" and god knows what else, has confessed to being the "mastermind" of the attack on the twin towers, the 1993 bombings of the same target, the bombings in Bali and Kenya in 2002, the "shoe bomb" plot, and plots to attack Canary Wharf, Big Ben, the Panama Canal, and the Empire State Building. He also plotted to kill the Pope and Bill Clinton. In addition, he confessed to being Jack the Ripper and - after his head had been pushed under the water a few more times - to vandalising the Blue Peter garden. One shouldn't joke about so serious a matter, I suppose, and this guy probably is a fairly nasty piece of work, but we all know that a person who is torturered will confess to anything (in all fairness, the BBC is flagging this up in its reports, referring to Mohammed's "boastful nature" - enhanced, no doubt, by a few lungfulls of water). It all looks like Inspector Knacker (or the Guantanamo equivilant) trying to improve his "clear-up" rate.
