CIA Vacuum Cleaner
FILE - This file photo downloaded from the Arabic language web site www.muslm.net, believed to have been taken in July 2009, shows a man identified by the site as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, in detention at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The picture was allegedly taken by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and released only to the detainee's family. Confined to the basement of a CIA secret prison in Romania about a decade ago, Mohammed asked his jailers whether he could embark on an unusual project: Would the spy agency allow Mohammed, who had earned his bachelor's in mechanical engineering, to design a vacuum cleaner?
