Curious confession confounds captors.

WASHINGTON (XF) - The Xsociate Files has obtained a copy of a classified portion of the confession by suspected terrorist Khalid Sheik Mohammed revealing his involvement in the 9/11 attacks and scores of others. But details in the classified portion seem to call into question the validity of his statements because he also confessed to a litany of other seemingly implausible offenses, including the plots to assassinate presidents Kennedy and Lincoln.

Critics of the administration state this news as a prime example of why torture, which Mohammed had reportedly been subjected to during his confinement at secret CIA run prisons overseas, is an unreliable method of gathering intelligence. The administration denies that torture took place, saying that so called "enhanced interrogation techniques" are sometimes required for high value detainees trained to resist standard interrogation tactics. But critics remain unconvinced.

"More often then not they are just saying what you wanna hear," said one intelligence official who spoke on condition of anonymity. "They'd confess to being the Tooth Fairy if it meant stopping whatever was causing them pain or discomfort."

Among the other things that Mohammed confessed to were being Jack the Ripper, The Zodiac Killer and the real father of Anna Nichole Smith's baby.
