Osama bin Laden is Dead

Who murdered Benazir Bhutto?

Murdered by intelligence agency
supported terrorists

When Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan to take a stand for democratic government, 3 million Pakistanis greeted her at the airport.

Now she is dead.

At 6:15 in this video, Benazir Bhutto refers in a matter-of-fact manner to “the man who killed Osama bin Laden.”

If this was a misstatement, she did not correct herself, nor did the interviewer call attention to it.

Before she was murdered, there was another attack on Benazir Bhutto’s life. She told David Frost that she was not even allowed to file a police report let alone get a serious investigation of the attack.

She specifically stated that she wanted the finances of the terrorists traced.

Saeed Sheikh is the man Bhutto refers to in this interview.

He is charged with killing Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl who tracked the relationship between Pakistani intelligence and terrorist groups. He is also suspected of having wired money to Mohamed Atta on behalf of Pakistani intelligence right before the 9/11 attacks.

George Bush & Company wholeheartedly support the current Pakistani regime.


Benazir murdered: what next?

With global scrutiny once more on Pakistan, Kanishk Tharoor offers a guide through the fall-out of the assassination of Benazir Bhutto

Former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto was assassinated today in an attack that has sent shock-waves across the world. As she left a political rally in the northern town of Rawalpindi, Bhutto was allegedly shot three times before the gunman detonated a suicide bomb, killing twenty-one others.

Her death has incited unrest across Pakistan, with activists of her party, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), taking to the streets. Violence overnight is thought to have left at least a further dozen people dead. President Pervez Musharraf has called for a three-day period of national mourning, while leaders around the world have condemned the murder of Pakistan’s ostensibly pro-democratic, pro-western champion. It is still unclear which fragment of the country’s shattered and bleak political landscape is responsible for the attack; while Islamist, anti-American militants remain the most likely culprits, many in Pakistan – especially PPP supporters – blame the Musharraf government itself.

With international scrutiny once again fixed on Pakistan, a number of issues demand greater attention amidst the fall-out of Bhutto’s murder.

  • Elections: Will elections, scheduled for 8 January, continue as planned? Probably not. PPP activists may be unwilling to go ahead without their talismanic leader. Nawaz Sharif has now pledged, as was his original position, to boycott the elections. Western leaders have insisted that postponement of the elections is tantamount to “appeasing the terrorists”, but Musharraf may find it impossible to hold parliamentary elections in the present tumult. Expect the democratic future of Pakistan to once more be cast into gloomy doubt.
  • The future of the PPP: As Anatol Lieven told toD in our recent seminar on Pakistan, Bhutto’s PPP is hardly a political party in real terms, but more of an alliance of “feuding barons” held together by the gel of Bhutto’s persona. Without her, the PPP is in disarray. It remains to be seen who will take the leadership of the party, or whether the party will even stay intact.
  • Investigation: Pakistan’s ambassador to Washington, Mahmud Ali Durrani, has told the American press that a formal investigation into Bhutto’s killing will soon be launched. Who will conduct the investigation, and how independent will it be? In the past, Bhutto has called Musharraf to bring the FBI or Scotland Yard into Pakistan. Will Musharraf belatedly invite foreign agencies to join the investigation?
  • Popular unrest: Bhutto’s killing has sparked off riots across the country. Security forces in Pakistan are on “red alert”. If violence continues, will a degree of emergency rule once again descend on the country?
  • Claims of responsibility: If Bhutto’s assassination was indeed perpetrated by al-Qaida or al-Qaida-affiliated groups, one would expect to soon uncover claims of responsibility for the attack. The successful killing of an avowedly pro-American leader like Bhutto could make for invaluable propaganda. Al-Qaida has been behind numerous failed attempts on Pakistani political leaders, including Musharraf.

Already, Bhutto’s death is swallowed in the sound and fury of the “war on terrorism”. Musharraf and Pakistani officials have blamed her murder on Islamist militants, just as they justified November’s emergency rule on the threat posed by jihadists. So too have governments around the world – including those in Washington and New Delhi – used today’s tragic events to urge more vigorous action against terrorists.

Terrorism in Pakistan and elsewhere must be tackled head-on. But the killing of Benazir Bhutto amounts to more than the martyring of a modern democrat by the forces of intolerance and extremism. In the coming weeks, one cannot afford to lose sight of the specifics of Pakistani politics – darker and more difficult though they may be – in the face of casual over-simplification.

    Show me the dead body of Osama bin Laden for photo evidence. I would like you to behead Osama’s head with his ugly flea-infested beard and bring it to me. I will be glad to pay you a nice and generous reward of 50,000,000 US dollars when you give his head to me. You will live comfortably for the rest of your life with a lot of rewarded cash!

    The read this. Michael Ledeen said in 2006 that Osama was dead:

    Bhutto wasn’t so loved. Her niece:
    (reported elsewhere today, but can’t find it: that Bhutto was popular with one-third of country.)

    And from Wayne Madsen’s August 15, 2007 report:
    “WMR has learned that the CIA is also working with pro-Al Qaeda and Taliban insurgents in Pakistan. Currently, Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia Richard Boucher is visiting Pakistan to repair frayed relations with Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf, however, U.S. intelligence is also working with tribal opponents of Musharraf to help destabilize his regime.

    Boucher is likely in Pakistan to help bring about the return of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto as Prime Minister in a civilian administration where Musharraf would retain the presidency. Bhutto, who remains in exile, and Musharraf recently met in Abu Dhabi to hammer out a power-sharing agreement.

    Bhutto claims she wants to return to Pakistan, as she said, to save her country from “a militant takeover, (and) God forbid, disintegration.”

    However, Bhutto’s own political party is affiliated with the very same Islamic militants in the tribal areas from whom she claims she wants to save her country.

    The Bush administration’s long-term plan is to use the tribal militants to destabilize Musharraf to the point that a Indian-American-Australian team, that could also possibly include covert Israeli commandos, can enter Pakistan’s deep underground laboratories to extract certain key nuclear technologies. The agreement of the Bush administration to provide India with billions in “peaceful” nuclear technology was used to lure India into the covert program to de-nuclearize Pakistan.

    Bottom line: Bhutto was the bait to help bring about the nuclear weapons extraction from Pakistan. In his book, “Surrender is Not an Option,” former unconfirmed US ambassador to the UN John Bolton wrote, “the principal American strategic interest” is the security of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons.”

    THE AL-QUEDA WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR BHUTTO’S DEATH: http://clifylq.livejournal.com/63012.html

    According to some interview with Bhutto from November one can conclude that certain circles inside the U.S.admin had their plans with Bhutto: Either she was used as a “Plan-B” (if Musharraf wouldn’t act as desired) or else.

    Finally we have arrived at this “else” now – as you can read from this WP piece where you can read that finally a deal was cut to make it officially possible that U.S. troops may “return” into Pakistan:

    Beginning early next year, U.S. Special Forces are expected to vastly expand their presence in Pakistan, as part of an effort to train and support indigenous counter-insurgency forces and clandestine counterterrorism units, according to defense officials involved with the planning.

    Now, as this new agreement has been finalized, the first U.S. personnel could be on the ground in Pakistan by early 2008, according to Pentagon sources.

    Bhutto wasn’t necessary anymore, moreover she seems to have spoken too openly about certain “secrets that everyone knows”: She was the next to confirm that Osama Bin Laden is dead already, as you can hear in this video at about 6 Minutes, 12 Seconds.
