The man who did what?

February 27, 2008

In an interview on Al-Jazeera, aired on 2nd November last year, David Frost asked Benazir Bhutto –

There was one report that said that you had arranged to send President Musharraf a letter to be sent in the event of your death by assassination urging him to investigate certain individuals in his government. Is that true?

In clarifying her point, she mentions a man who “had dealings with Omar Sheikh who murdered Osama bin Laden” (see 2’14” in the video).

It’s very matter-of-fact, and not in the style of a revelation, and Frost chooses not to challenge her on it.

Jen Clark at Little Country Lost wrote an interesting post after doing a lot of analytical research, which makes very thought-provoking reading.

She also reveals that the only other outlet to screen the interview, the BBC, edited out the sentence in question in its broadcast.

    Overoften – thanks for linking my post here.

    What amazes me about what Benazir Bhutto said is that the information about Osama bin-Laden easily leads anyone (that bothers to look) easily towards General Mahmood Ahmed – the former director of the ISI (the Pakistani version of the CIA) whom it is more than reasonable to believe is the person Bhutto identifies as the person that was trying to kill her (which was the subject of the letter she was describing that she wrote to Dictator Musharraf).

    It was a brilliant move on so many levels. If she gives us some amazing information about the death of our boogie man, Osama bin-Laden, that will get westerners like myself interested enough to look into it (she’s knows us – she went to school at Harvard). After that, it was quite simple to find the name of the person she wanted investigated for her murder.

    Here’s the six degrees from Kevin Bacon. You ready?

    Osama bin-Laden =
    9/11 =
    Omar Sheikh provided $100,000 to Mohammad Atta for 9/11 =
    General Mahmood Ahmed gave Omar Sheikh the money

    Pretty simple, huh?

    She knew she was a dead woman considering she almost got blown up the minute she stepped foot back in Pakistan. If she knew she was going to lose her life, what motivation would she have to lie? Why wouldn’t she tell the truth?

    And the fact that the BBC edited out the statement. To me, that’s all the proof I need that there was legitimacy behind what she said – and that the BBC is no longer truly credible. They have committed the journalistic sin of omission.

    Anyway, if you find any interesting pieces of this puzzle, stop by and let me know about it, ok? Two heads are in more places than one!

    Osama Bin Laden is dead. Besides some dodgy videos, I haven’t seen anything to suggest he is alive, or was even involved in 9/11. Days after the WTC attacks, he denied responsibility: CNN article from Sept. 17th 2001. Also check out the FBI’s most wanted list. There is no mention of 9/11 on his “most wanted” page.
