washingtonpost.com — After enduring the CIA's harshest interrogation methods and spending more than a year in the agency's secret prisons, Khalid Sheik Mohammed stood before U.S. intelligence officers in a makeshift lecture hall, leading what they called "terrorist tutorials."

In 2005 and 2006, the bearded, pudgy man who calls himself the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks discussed a wide variety of subjects, including Greek philosophy and al-Qaeda dogma. In one instance, he scolded a listener for poor note-taking and his inability to recall details of an earlier lecture.

Speaking in English, Mohammed "seemed to relish the opportunity, sometimes for hours on end, to discuss the inner workings of al-Qaeda and the group's plans, ideology and operatives," said one of two sources who described the sessions, speaking on the condition of anonymity because much information about detainee confinement remains classified. "He'd even use a chalkboard at times."

Under torture, people will admit everything the interogator suggests.

The report Holder is using to "get" the CIA say American lives were saved! Obama would rather Americans die than upset a terrorist!

I would slowly cut off a terrorist legs to save my family. I believe it is immoral not to do what ever it takes to save lives.

waterboarding or any other torture is nothing if the terrorist is willing to kill innocent people.
