The alleged mastermind behind 9/11 told President Obama that the U.S. brought the 2001 terrorist attack on itself, according to a letter obtained and published Wednesday by The Miami Herald.
The 18-page letter is dated January 2015, but wasn’t sent to the White House until a military judge ordered for it to be delivered just days before Obama left office last month. Officials at the prison at Guantanamo Bay, where he’s a detainee, had refused to deliver the letter because it could be considered propaganda.
“It was not we who started the war against you in 9/11. It was you and your dictators in our land,” Khalid Sheik Mohammed, 51, wrote in the letter.
The letter was addressed to Obama and described him as “the head of the snake” and president of “the country of oppression and tyranny,” the report said.
One section said, “Why did 9/11 happen? And Why May it Happen Again?”
“The war crimes perpetrated in Palestine since 1948, and those taking place in Gaza today, are the clearest indication of why 9/11 happened, and why it may happen against in the future,” he wrote as an answer in the letter.
