Rosie O'Donnell made a big deal on "The View" of her contention that one should not believe the confession of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed when he listed all the plots he'd cooked up against America and Americans, including 9/11, and that he personally beheaded Danny Pearl. After all, Rosie said with her typical razor-sharp analysis, he was tortured, he was confessing inside the torture capital of the world, Guantanamo Bay, and he didn't have a lawyer or a witness present.
This is what happens when you hate the president and the administration so much that even the world's most evil people look to you like little angels next to George W. Bush.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed may have exaggerated his role in some of his 31 confessions, but evidence other than his word indicates he did in fact do most of what he said he did. When he said he did 9/11 "from A to Z," he's right. He did. When he said his blessed right hand cut the head of Danny Pearl, he's not kidding. He really did.
It's true he was waterboarded for about two-and-a-half seconds. Interrogators said he gave up the quickest of all the detainees and sang like a little chirpy bird. But here's the kicker: The confession was witnessed by Senators Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, and Carl Levin, Democrat of Michigan.
Now Levin is no Bush fan. He's certainly no fan of the Iraq war. But you have not heard a peep out of him about anything being wrong with the KSM confession. Not a word. He and Graham walked in, sat down and watched as KSM was brought in before military judges and made his confession. Who in their right mind would think that Carl Levin would sit by silently if someone were tortured in front of his very eyes in order to get a confession?
Face it. In this episode of the confession of the worst crimes against this country there is only one right side and one wrong side. And Rosie and her friends who pooh-pooh this confession are on the wrong side. The real problem is they are so committed to being wrong.
That's My Word.
