Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Beheaded Daniel Pearl

According to AP:

Transcripts show that suspected 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed confessed to the beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl, according to a revised transcript released by the U.S. military.

"I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew, Daniel Pearl, in the city of Karachi, Pakistan,"
Mohammed is quoted as saying in a transcript of a military hearing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that was released Thursday by the Pentagon.

Mohammed's claimed involvement in Pearl's 2002 slaying was among 31 attacks and plots, some of which never occurred, he took responsibility for in a hearing Saturday at the U.S. naval prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the Pentagon said. It released the bulk of the transcript late Wednesday, but held back on the section about Pearl's killing to allow time for his family to be notified, said department spokesman Bryan Whitman.
