Washington – A small group of al-Qaeda operatives was plotting chilling follow-up attacks after September 11 before they were detained at Guantanamo, leaked documents on the US facility revealed on Tuesday.
The New York Times, one of several media outlets to have obtained the WikiLeaks documents, said a small group around September 11 mastermind Khaled Sheikh Mohammed aspired to stage attacks involving weapons of mass destruction.
Other documents leaked by the whistle-blower website reveal that the United States botched the handling of Guantanamo inmates, holding some for years without reliable evidence and releasing others who posed a grave threat.
