The architect of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, showed up in court two hours late Wednesday, sporting a green camouflage vest over his regular Pakistani attire, part of a defense bid to make him look like a soldier instead of a mass murderer.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba — The architect of 9/11 lectured the judge in his death-penalty trial Wednesday, rationalizing the killing of nearly 3,000 innocents while victims’ relatives sat stone-faced in the courtroom gallery.

Wearing a camouflage vest as a symbolic accompaniment to traditional Pakistani garments for the first time, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed called out his chief prosecutor, Army Brigadier Gen. Mark Martins.

“When the government feels bad for the deaths or the killing of 3,000 people who were killed on Sept. 11, we also should feel sorry that the American government represented by Gen. Martins and others have killed millions of people,” the defendant said through a translator.

“My advice to you is that you don’t get affected by the crocodile tears,” he added, referring to the prosecution. “Because your blood is not made of gold and ours is not made out of water. We are all human beings.”
