    As Eots said, confession after what approaches 7 years in isolation will look fishy, apart from that the guy wishes to become a martyr. Two Birds with one stroke for him.

    If I would be in his situation I would use a tu qouque defense and attract as much publicity as possible. Worked quite nice for German Generals.

    I heard they want to get the death penalty so they can die as martyrs.

    What I dont get is why do not wish to go for the publicity. The normal thing to do for them would of course to die as a martyr (thats going to happen anyway), but they are willing to pass on the option of accusing the evil USA in front of a world audience before defiantly marching to their assured execution?

    I think the correct response would be to sentence them to live "since they confessed and cooperated". That would make the USA look "mercifull", make them look "weak" (I bet these guys would literally hate that more than beeing killed) and really piss of this would be martyrs.

    We should do what the British did in India, I think around the turn of the 19th century. The Muslims were causing them serious problems - this is how they solved the problem:

    To Muslims pigs are considered spiritually dirty animals. So the Brits started burrying the Muslim dead in pig carcasses. This terirfied the Muslims who believed those burried so would not be allowed in heaven. Problem solved...

    Oh. It sounds like a good idea though. We should try it and see if it works.
