Secret government documents leaked to the media last night reveal a top Gitmo detainee vowed to unleash a "nuclear hellstorm" if Osama Bin Laden was ever captured or assassinated.
Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, claimed Al Qaeda had hidden a nuclear bomb in Europe that was tied to Bin Laden's fate, according to a dump of classified documents released by the WikiLeaks website.
The frightening information was in thousands of pages of dossiers of detainees being held at the controversial Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba.
Mohammed's boast to his Gitmo interrogators remains unconfirmed, but officials have uncovered attempts by AlQaeda to obtain a nuke and fear the terrorist group has already purchased uranium. It is the fourth time WikiLeaks has dumped top secret documents to global news groups, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Telegraph of Britain.
Other revelations in the latest leak ofdocuments compiled from 2002 to2008 include:
- A plot by Al Qaeda to poison Americans by putting cyanide in air-conditioning units in public buildings.
- Gitmo interrogators subjected Mohammed al-Qahtani, the so-called 20th hijacker of the 9/11 attacks, to wearing a dog leash and urinating on himself and sexually humiliated him to obtain confessions that "appear to be true."
- American forces seized innocent people in Afghanistan because they were wearing a certain model of Casio watch that Al Qaeda terrorists used as bomb timers.
