Mohammed also claimed responsibility for an attack on New York's World Trade Centre in 1993, the 2002 bombing of a Bali nightclub in Indonesia and an attempt to take down two American aircraft using shoe bombs, according to the transcript.
He also said he was tortured by the CIA after he was arrested in Pakistan in March 2003 and handed over to the US.
The transcripts also lay out evidence against Mohammed, saying that a
computer seized during his capture included detailed information about the September 11 plot - ranging from names and photos of the hijackers to photos of hijacker Mohammad Atta's pilot's licence and letters from al-Qaeda bin Laden.
Mohammed was among 14 prisoners identified by US authorities as "high-value" suspects and transferred to Guantanamo last year from secret CIA prisons abroad.

Al-Libi is a Libyan who reportedly masterminded two bombings 11 days apart in Pakistan in December 2003 that targeted Pervez Musharraf, the president, for his support of the US "war on terror".
