From Australia to Azerbaijan, Panama to the Philippines, the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks has claimed responsibility for plotting a series of mass casualty terrorist attacks and assassinations of world leaders for al-Qaida that were either thwarted or never came to pass.

In confessing to more than 30 actual or alleged al-Qaida strikes, including 9/11 and the earlier truck bombing of the World Trade Center, between 1993 and his capture in 2003, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed confirmed long-held suspicions of his involvement.

He also revealed al-Qaida plans to hit western targets around the globe that have not been earlier discussed by intelligence officials or contained in terror alerts.

* Thailand, which has been hit by a spate of Muslim-Buddhist violence in recent months, where Mohammed said planned attacks on nightclubs frequented by American and British citizens and was responsible for “surveying and financing” a plot to destroy an Israeli El Al airliner taking off from the Bangkok airport. These have not taken place.
