NEW YORK – The husband of a woman killed on 9/11 went to Guantanamo Bay on a shocking secret mission: to try to save the lives of the Al Qaeda monsters who planned the murder, The New York Post reports.
Blake Allison, one of 10 relatives of victims to win a lottery for tickets to the arraignment of confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four of his evil accomplices, had told people he was making the trip because “I wanted to see the faces of the people accused of murdering my wife.’’
But while there, the 62-year-old wine-company executive held a clandestine meeting with the terrorists’ lawyers, in which he offered to testify against putting their clients to death, reports the New York Post.
A vocal critic of capital punishment, Allison wants to convince the US government to spare the lives of KSM and his minions even if a military commission convicts them of a slew of death-penalty charges.
“The public needs to know there are family members out there who do not hold the view that these men should be put to death,” Allison told The Post.
