Here is the David Frost interview of Benazir Bhutto (Asif Ali Zardari's wife) before she was assassinated (well, she hit her head and died during a bomb blast/assassination attempt).
David Frost did not challenge her on her assertion (2:14) that Bin Laden was murdered.
Oh, but of course these leaders must have "mis-spoke".
Then there was this news report from Fox in 2001
Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader.
"The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said.
Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.
About 30 close associates of bin Laden in Al Qaeda, including his most trusted and personal bodyguards, his family members and some "Taliban friends," attended the funeral rites. A volley of bullets was also fired to pay final tribute to the "great leader."
The Taliban source who claims to have seen bin Laden's face before burial said "he looked pale ... but calm, relaxed and confident."
Asked whether bin Laden had any feelings of remorse before death, the source vehemently said "no." Instead, he said, bin Laden was proud that he succeeded in his mission of igniting awareness amongst Muslims about hegemonistic designs and conspiracies of "pagans" against Islam. Bin Laden, he said, held the view that the sacrifice of a few hundred people in Afghanistan was nothing, as those who laid their lives in creating an atmosphere of resistance will be adequately rewarded by Almighty Allah.
When asked where bin Laden was buried, the source said, "I am sure that like other places in Tora Bora, that particular place too must have vanished."
Now, amidst a sagging economy, a birth certificate forgery controversy and poor poll numbers, Obama announces Bin Laden is dead... on a Sunday night before the markets open on Monday.
Apparently, it has taken the Obama administration 2 years to produce Obama's birth certificate and Osama's death certificate.
There hasn't been a confirmed Osama sighting since the attack on Tora Bora.
They said they needed a week to confirm Osama's DNA...
You mean they raided his home and found a hair brush?
Apparently timing is everything. Our government even waited a week to break the story AFTER the Royal wedding and of course the "official" announcement came in the middle of Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice.
Oh please, I smell another White House BS story.
If this is indeed the official photo (on the right) of Osama shot in the head...
Tell me this picture wasn't photoshopped.... from the photo on the left.
and... how convenient that Osama Bin Laden is "buried at sea"
And, if indeed, Osama Bin Laden is dead as is now being reported by the media - they we can bring the troops home - abolish the Dept. of Homeland Security, and stop TSA from molesting children.
Oh, but wait - now that Osama is "officially dead" - we can expect retaliatory attacks - so we must give up more civil liberties to our government just "to be safe'.
It's all theater.
