NEW YORK (PIX11) – Jailed terror suspect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed can add vacuum cleaner designer, to his resume.

Not that he will need one. He’s the self-confessed mastermind of the September 11 terror attacks.

Mohammed was captured in 2003 and is jailed in the basement of Guantánamo Bay.

The CIA is letting him design vacuum cleaners to keep from going crazy. Mohammed has a degree in mechanical engineering.

He and four associates are currently on trial before a military panel.
