WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The five detainees at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison camp charged with plotting the September 11 attacks have filed a document expressing pride at their accomplishment and accepting responsibility for the deaths of nearly 3,000 people, The New York Times reported on Monday.

The document, which the newspaper said may be released publicly on Tuesday, describes the five men as the "9/11 Shura Council," and says their actions were an offering to God, according to excerpts of the document read to a reporter by an unidentified government official, the report said.

"'To us,' the official read, 'they are not accusations. To us they are a badge of honor, which we carry with honor,'" the paper said.

The document is titled "The Islamic Response to the Government's Nine Accusations," the military judge at the U.S. Naval base said in a separate filing, obtained by the Times, that described the detainees' document.

The document was filed on behalf of the five men, including Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who has called himself the mastermind of the attacks.

Some of the men had said earlier that they planned the 2001 attacks and that they wanted to be martyrs. The reason for the new filing, which the report said reached the military court on March 5, was not clear. The brief court order describing the filing said the men sought no legal action.

The men describe the attack planning and the killing of Americans as a model of Islamic action, according to excerpts a government official read to the Time.

Fuck them

I say drip pig blood all over them, torture them for 3-days and behead one of them while the rest watch, bury him with the pig, then do one more every day until they are all gone. Then release the last one back to his home. Ensure it is all filmed and put on the internet...I could do it myself and feel nothing!!! I swear.

Is it really surprising that terrorists who have dedicated there life to killing Americans are proud of helping with such a horrible attack. Its too bad these SOBs werent killed instead of arrested.
