Dead Khalid.

how does this work?

khalid shaikh mohammed, the right hand in al-qaeda, who was recently capture in pakistan and is breaking under friendly torture ('he's just a man,' said the pakistan official, 'and no man will hold out forever') is apparently... well, dead.

here's an asian times article for the 30th of October, 2002.

and here's a general yahoonews article from the 6th of march.

what i love, in the death article, is how khalid scraws out a final praising of allah in his own blood. lovely.
