Officials: Mohammed ‘confessions’ exaggerated.

“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s claims that he was responsible for dozens of successful, foiled and imagined attacks in the past 15 years relies on a loose definition of the word ‘responsible.’ Officials say the 9/11 mastermind was key to some plots but a bit player in others.”

UPDATE: Earlier today, ThinkProgress noted that the Pentagon had redacted Mohammed’s statements on torture in his confession statement. Human Rights Watch has called on the deleted transcript to be made public.
