Purpose of the 9/11 Attacks

Sheikh Mohammed said that the purpose of the attack on the Twin Towers was to "wake the American people up." Sheikh Mohammed said that if the target would have been strictly military or government, the American people would not focus on the atrocities that America is committing by supporting Israel against the Palestinian people and America's self-serving foreign policy that corrupts Arab governments and leads to further exploitation of the Arab/Muslim peoples.

You can find the above statement on page 11, as paragraph 15, under the heading "Purpose of the 9/11 Attacks" in Defense Trial Exhibit 941 from the trial United States v. Zacarias Moussaoui Criminal No. 01-455-A

On July 31, 2006, the United States District Court, Eastern District of Virginia, posted this exhibit on their website and listed it on the defense exhibit page as "Substitution for Testimony - Khalid Sheik Mohammed." The document is titled: "SUBSTITUTION FOR THE TESTIMONY OF KHALID SHEIKH MOHAMMED," and it begins: "Khalid Sheikh Mohammed ("Sheikh Mohammed"), a.k.a. Mukhtar, was a high-ranking member of al Qaeda, who served as the "emir" or "mastermind" of the September 11, 2001, attacks. He was appointed to that role by Usama Bin Laden ("Bin Laden"). Sheikh Mohammed was intimately involved in the planning and execution of the September 11 attacks, as well as a central planner in al Qaeda's post-September 11 terrorist plots."

Exhibit 941 says, "lawyers have been given numerous written summaries of Sheikh Mohammed's oral statements made in response to extensive questioning. Listed below are some of the statements Sheikh Mohammed made in response to questioning. You should assume that if Sheikh Mohammed were available to testify in this courtroom under oath and subject to perjury he would have said what is contained in these statements. Although you do not have the ability to see the witness's demeanor as he testifies, you must approach these statements with the understanding that they were made under circumstances designed to elicit truthful statements from the witness."
