KSM- Tortured Enough?

The Pentagon has released some sanitized versions of what are purported to be Khalid Sheik Mohammed's confessions.

News sources are expressing skepticism over whether his many claims are to be trusted.

Ummm, why does anyone have any confidence in the statement itself? After the rendition, the secret prisons, the torture, and the supremely opaque camp x-ray, does this statement really have any credibility?

Well, it seems like the press has gobbled it up anyway. But really, how do we even know there is a Khalid Sheik Mohammed?

The final irony is that the immediate redaction by the military panel of KSM's allegations of torture at the hands of his CIA interrogators actually lends credence to the rest of his statement.
