Kathryn Jean Lopez at National Review Online interviewed Robert Baer, a former CIA officer. Here is what Mr. Baer had to say on the arrest of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed:
Khalid Shaikh Mohammed's arrest is the most important counterterrorist arrest, ever. In all the attacks against American targets in the Seventies and Eighties, we haven't seen a success like this. Not only can he tell us who paid for 9/11 (a state?), he can tell us where the other cells are, should there indeed be others. Still, the most important is state sponsorship. Maybe Iraq? Maybe Iran? Potentially his interrogation could be history making.
Educated in the United States, KSM was apparently the cause of our recent "Orange" level terrorism alert. We trust that the CIA will interview Mr. Mohammed very, well, carefully.
