Send not to know for whom the bell tolls!

Among the crimes and would-be crimes cheerfully acknowledged by Khalid Sheikh Mohammad in the transcript of his 'Article 5' hearing is '13. I was responsible for planning, surveying, and financing for the operation to destroy Heathrow Airport, the Canary Wharf Building, and Big Ben on British soil'. Okay, Heathrow; it's a terrible place, and a world traveler like KSM might be forgiven for contemplating its demise. But Big Ben! How could anyone be so mean-spirited as to blow up Big Ben?

KSM's numbered confessions, if that's what they are, go all the way up to 31, and some involve multiple targets. Indeed, KSM was supposedly after so many places and people (Daniel Pearl, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Pervez Musharraf, and Pope John Paul II--twice!) that one suspects he might just be throwing the federales off the scent. Why not be hanged for a Christian as well as a Jew? Why not take the blame for everything, so that the brothers can sleep easy tonight?
