Sorry for possibly being called a conspiracy theorist, but when the news media lies and covers up constantly, one begins to try to cull accurate information from anywhere one can find it. I thought I had heard several years ago that a presidential candidate of Pakistan had stated that Bin Laden was dead then, and within a week of making that statement she was assasinated. So I looked it up, the source of information is Wikipedia:

“Benazir Bhutto ( 21 June 1953 – 27 December 2007) was a Pakistan-born politician, with Pakistani and Kurdish-Iranian origin, who chaired the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), a centre-left and the largest political party in Pakistan. Bhutto was the first woman elected to lead a Muslim state, having twice been Prime Minister of Pakistan (1988–1990; 1993–1996). ”

“On 2 November 2007, Bhutto participated in an interview with David Frost on Al Jazeera where she stated Osama Bin Laden had been murdered by Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, who is also one of the men convicted of kidnapping and killing U.S. journalist Daniel Pearl. Frost never asked a follow up question regarding the claim that Bin Laden was dead. Her interview could later be viewed on BBC’s website, although it was initially distorted by the BBC as her claim about Bin Laden’s death was taken out. But, once people discovered this and started posting evidence on YouTube, the BBC replaced its version with the version that was originally aired on Al Jazeera.”

If you want to know more, you can go to Wikipedia or do your own online research. There is so much misinformation on television, the radio and newspapers (not to mention the internet) that my opininons about much of what I hear is kind of like my belief in an afterlife – maybe there is and maybe there isn’t, we won’t find out in this life.
