The Strange Case of Benazir Bhutto’s Claims and Osama bin Laden’s Death

Benazir BhuttoJennifer Briney wrote back in 2008 on Little Country Lost:

In a November 2, 2007 interview, less than two months before she would be assassinated, Benazir Bhutto was asked by reporter David Frost of Al-Jazeera English about a letter that she had sent to Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf. The letter outlined who she believed should be investigated in the event of her assassination. While giving her answer, she listed as one of the suspects a “key figure in security … a former military officer in Pakistan” who had dealings with, among others, “Omar Sheikh, the man who murdered Osama bin-Laden.”

If that name, Omar Shieikh, sounds familiar it’s because he was a key figure in some huge stories between 1999 and 2002. His full name is Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, and multiple variations of those names are used to describe him including Omar Sheikh and Saeed Sheikh. Here’s how you may have heard of him:

  • In 1999, Indian Airlines flight 814 was hijacked by Pakistani nationals. In return for the hostages, the hijackers demanded India release the leaders of the ISI (the Pakistani version of the CIA) funded group Harkat-ul-Mujahideen. One of these leaders was Omar Sheikh.
  • In the months before 9/11, using the alias “Mustafa Mohammad Ahmed”, Omar Sheikh transferred at least $100,000 to Mohammad Atta, one of the 9/11 hijackers.
  • Omar Sheikh was sentenced to death in 2002 for the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

Having trouble wrapping your head around this? I was too, so I did a little research. First, let’s see if this revelation that Omar Sheikh murdered Osama bin-Laden is even possible…

    The interesting thing about Bhutto’s declaration of bin Laden’s death is that she later retracted the claim, and yet still got assassinated.

      She was assassinated because of the knowledge she had. Not because of what she said publicly. “Tying up lose ends” describes what happened perfectly.

        Agreed…she made statements that clearly implicated Pakistani ISI as having a wider role and greater knowledge than had ever been admitted publicly…and she paid for it with her life.

    There is a lot of mystery surrounding Osama bin-Laden. One things certain though, May 1st was complete bullshit.

      Let’s say that you’re newly elected president Barack Obama acting in good faith (bit of a stretch, I know.) You do an exhaustive audit of the previous administration’s comings and goings and find out conclusively that OBL actually died in December 2001. Do you make it known and shake the world’s confidence in the entire American military and political machine, or do you unceremoniously remove him from the chessboard ex post facto, primarily to give war hawks some sense of closure? Secondarily, you set a trap whereby the truth possibly comes out organically via some high level former Bush admin braggarts, resulting in self implication of the original conspirators rather than finger pointing and conjecture. When called on his own possible deception, easy enough for Obama to simply claim he got the wrong guy on May 1st and his hands come out relatively clean. Just spit balling here, and I realize that it’s all based on the weak assumption that Obama is the man he says he is.

    We should have burned Pakistan to the ground if Bin Ladin was actually there. If he was real, that is.
