Psychotic killer with a heart?

In the transcript of his ‘confession’, Khalid Sheikh ‘Gabby’ Mohammed declares:

“When I said I’m not happy that 3,000 been killed in America, I feel sorry even. I don’t like to kill children and the kids.”

So, is this something like remorse that Gabby is expressing here?

He goes on to say that, although such killing is “prohibited” in Islam, as much as in Judaism or Christianity, there are “exceptions of rule”, and draws parallels with the actions of the US and allies in Iraq.

Tim McVeigh is said not to have expressed remorse about the child victims in his 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, to whom he explicitly referred as so much “collateral damage”.

Yet Gabby, for all his crocodile tears, effectively assigns his child victims the same “collateral” status.

So, to the question in the title, the answer may probably be something like:

Nah, fuck off Gabby!
