About The Confession

The headlines today are full of stories about how Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has now confessed to masterminding 9/11 as well as, well, everything (including the Lindburgh baby kidnapping*).

My first and only reaction?

Is this news?  Didn’t we already know this?

And the answer to both questions, respectively, is: No, it’s not news, — and yes, we already knew this.  Looks like someone is trying to change the national dialogue.

UPDATE:  Josh Marshall apparently agrees:

BREAKING! 9/11 Mastermind who confessed to being mastermind after being captured like five years ago confesses again at Gitmo hearing and now the transcript is released by the Pentagon to get Gonzales off the front pages!


*No, not really.
