'9/11 council'

The five detainees at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison camp charged with plotting the Sept. 11 attacks have filed a document expressing pride at their accomplishment and accepting responsibility for the deaths of nearly 3,000 people, The New York Times reported on Monday.
The document describes the five men as the "9/11 Shura Council," and says their actions were an offering to God, according to excerpts of the document read to a reporter by an unidentified government official, the report said. "偲o us,' the official read, 啍hey are not accusations. To us they are a badge of honor, which we carry with honor,'" the paper said.
