Captured Mohammed Predicted Attacks in Gulf-Post

The alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks predicted when he was captured that al Qaeda members would begin a series of attacks on U.S. forces gathering in the Gulf for a possible invasion of Iraq, the Washington Post said on Friday. According to a Pakistani intelligence official present at Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s interrogation on Saturday before he was flown out of Pakistan, Mohammed said more than once that his arrest would not limit the potential of his comrades to strike U.S. interests, the paper reported. “Let the Iraq war begin — the U.S. forces will be targeted inside their bases in the Gulf,” the official quoted Mohammed as saying, according to the newspaper. “I don’t have any specific information, but my sixth sense is telling me that you will get the news from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait.” The United States has hailed the arrest of the Kuwaiti-born Mohammed over the weekend as the biggest catch in President Bush’s war on terror, although they have also warned the nation could not relax its vigilance.
