While the United States continues to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, there seems like there is some little hope in sight with new vaccines being made available. In light of this, shocking news has been revealed that The Pentagon will begin distributing Covid-19 vaccines to Guantanamo Bay detainees. The detention center is essentially a US Military prison that houses 40 detainees, held there for a range of horrific crimes-among them are Al Qaeda terrorists and 911 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. 

The Guardian recently reported that vaccines would 'hopefully' be made available to children in late spring or early summer. The current vaccines available are not approved to be used on children. Even concerning the vaccination of adults, manufacturers, the administration and state government seem to be facing multiple issues. With only 1.3% of the population having received the vaccine, it looks like it will be a while before it is made readily available. 

Prosecutor Clayton Trivett Jr, who is heading the case against the five terrorists responsible for the 9/11 attacks informed defense lawyers that '[A]n official in the Pentagon has just signed a memo approving the delivery of the Covid-19 vaccine to the detainee population Guantánamo.' The vaccines will be given on a voluntary basis and will require the detainee's consent in order to do the same, seeing that the current vaccine is not entirely approved by the FDA. These detainees are being vaccinated in order to help resume legal proceedings which have been delayed due to the pandemic. Mohammed had a trial date set by a military judge for January 11, 2021 reports The New York Times.

Who is Khalid Sheikh Mohammed?

Mohammed was born in Pakistan somewhere between 1964 or 1965, although come sources suggest his birthplace might have been Kuwait. His father was a Deobandi preacher. Mohammed is fluent in Balochi, Urdu, Arabic and English. He joined the Muslim Botherhood at the age of 16. He has a Bachelors degree in Science and mechanical engineering, seeing that he attending Chowan University in Murfreesboro, North Carolina And then later transferred to North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. There was been questions about the origin of his radicalization, seeing that he spent significant amount of time in the USA as a student. While the United States 9/11 Commission Report noted that, "By his own account, KSM's animus toward the United States stemmed not from his experiences there as a student, but rather from his violent disagreement with U.S. foreign policy favoring Israel." The Washington Post reported in 2009 that his time in the USA contributed to his radicalization. 

An insight into his shocking criminal activities

Operation Bojinka was Mohammed's plan to destroy 13 commercial airline flights in Manila, flying between the USA, East Asia and South Asia. He devised the plan with his nephew, Ramzi Yousef, who was convicted on terrorism charges for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The plan was to comb 12 flights in total, roughly killing 5,000 people in the process. The plan also included sending an explosive-packed car to the CIA headquarters. In 1994, they engaged a test bomb on the Philippine Airlines Flight 434 using only about ten percent of the fire power - this resulted in one causality. However, the plot was converted on January 6 and they were not able to see it through. 

Mohammed met Osama Bin Laden in 1996, when the latter urged him to join the al-Qaeda. He initially tried to join mujahideen leader Ibn al-Khattab in Chechnya, but was unable to do so and ultimately joined al-Qaeda as a full-fledged member in 1999 and even became leader of al-Qaeda's media committee. The September 11 attacks were essentially an evolved version of Operation Bojinka, with Bin Laden funding the same. Each target was selected strategically- the World Trade Center represented the US economy; the Pentagon represented the military and the US Capitol was behind US policy in support of Israel. If the hijackers were successful in reaching the destination, they were to crash the planes. 

Mohammed was also responsible for the death of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal journalist who was captured and decapitated. Pearl, who was researching the al-Qaeda at the time, was captured on Mohammed's orders and was later murdered. In 2007, the Pentagon revealed informed that the murder was carried out by Mohammed himself. 

America is enraged

News about The Pentagon distributing Covid-19 vaccines to Guantanamo Bay detainees has certainly riled up the Internet and social media has been quick to admonish the Joe Biden government that a criminal like Mohammed is getting precedence of thousands of sick and needy Americans. One enraged social media user, targetting the government wrote: "9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will get offered the COVID vaccine this week while members of my family whom are high risk are waiting on a ‘lottery’ list for it. #BidensAmerica." Another complained, "They are on a freaking island for god sake." Another livid social media user recalled the slogan 'America first' and chided the government saying: "The Pentagon will begin distributing COVID-19 vaccines to Guantanamo Bay detainees, including Al Qaeda terrorists and 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, as early as next week, officials have confirmed. America first no more." Another shared: "Biden giving 9/11 perp Khalid Muhammad and Gitmo inmates vaccine on Monday , while vulnerable Americans die of coronavirus, waiting on vaccine" to which a person replied 'priorities'.
