一名美国庭讯人员提供证词说,关在关塔纳摩监狱的一名沙特阿拉伯人承认帮助了2001年9月11日劫持飞机对美国发动恐怖袭击的19个人当中的7个人上飞机和提供资助。

面临战争罪法庭审判的豪萨维在2004年1月的4天庭讯中对向他展示其卷入恐怖袭击的证据的庭讯人员承认了他的作为。

退休的联邦调查局特工珀尔金斯星期三说:“他表示,很高兴能帮助那些实施攻击的兄弟。”这是迄今为止检察人员将在审判中使用的最详细证据。审讯将近6年前开始,逐步取得进展。

珀尔金斯表示,和豪萨维的对话随意、专业、不带有任何威胁。。但是辩护律师说,承认不是自愿的,而是在中央情报局残酷的手法下获得的。豪萨维2003年3月在巴基斯坦被抓获,2006年9月被送到关塔纳摩。

珀尔金斯在证词中说,豪萨维告诉她,他认为攻击是对美国在沙特阿拉伯驻军的合法报复行动。

在纽约、五角大楼和宾西法尼亚州发生的9/11劫机攻击中,有2976人丧生。有5人在关塔纳摩被指控为攻击的同谋。如果被定罪,这些人有可能被处决。

FBI Agent: Saudi at Guantanamo Admitted Helping 9/11 Plot

A Saudi Arabian being held at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp has admitted to helping with flights and finances for seven of the 19 men who hijacked planes in the September 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S., one of his interrogators testified at his trial.

Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, now facing a war crimes tribunal, spoke to interrogators over four days in January 2004 as they showed him evidence of his involvement in the terrorist attack.

"He indicated he was very happy to have been able to support the brothers who carried out the attack," retired FBI Agent Abigail Perkins testified Wednesday, providing the most detailed account so far of evidence prosecutors intend to use in a case that has unfolded incrementally over nearly six years.

The agent described the conversation as cordial, professional and nonthreatening. But defense attorneys say the confessions were not voluntary, but rather the result of brutal treatment at the hands of the CIA between his capture in Pakistan in March 2003 and when he was taken to Guantanamo in September 2006.

Perkins testified that al-Hawsawi told her he considered the attack a legitimate retaliation for U.S. troops being stationed in Saudi Arabia. "He indicated that he was very happy to have been able to support the brothers who carried out the attack," she recalled.

In all, 2,976 people were killed on 9/11 in the attacks using planes that crashed in New York, at the Pentagon and in a Pennsylvania field. Five men are charged at Guantanamo as co-conspirators in the attack, and they could be executed if they are convicted.
