Who Really Killed Bin Laden?

In May 2015, Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh claims that the Al-Qaeda frontman wasn’t killed in a secret US mission at all. But if the USA didn’t capture and kill bin Laden, then who did?


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

Benazir Bhutto

Jennifer 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…
