BBC Edits David Frost’s Interview of Bhutto

I received an e-mail this morning from The Existentialist Cowboy about an interview Benazir Bhutto gave to David Frost of the BBC’s “Frost Over The World!”

BBC’ Bhutto Interview.

At 5:01 of this video Bhutto tries to express the names of three individuals whom might be responsible for her attempted assassination in October ’07.  However, the camera leaves her for David Frost and cuts out her remaining two suspects, leaving the interview itself completely indiscernible.  Why would the BBC edit out this VERY important piece of information?

Here is the complete interview and at 6:13, you can hear her full list-the uncut version….

Did you hear that?  “Omar Sheikh the man who murdered Osama Bin Laden”

Wikipedia says this:

November 2007

In an interview with political interviewer David Frost, taken on November 2, 2007, the recently assassinated Pakistani politician, and Pakistan People’s Party chairwoman, Benazir Bhutto, claimed that Bin Laden had been murdered by Omar Sheikh. During her answer to a question pertaining to the identities of those who had previously attempted her own assassination, Bhutto named Sheikh as a possible suspect while referring to him as “the man who murdered Osama bin Laden.” Despite the weight of such a statement, neither Bhutto nor Frost attempted to clarify it and no other mainstream media appears to have further inquired about it.

Why not?  Where’s the outrage?  Shouldn’t we celebrate the fact that this man who purportedly was responsible for 9/11 is now gone?

Oh I have so many questions…if OBL is dead, then there is quite remarkably, complete silence from the MSM…Is this the reason why Bush closed up shop at the CIA’s OBL Station in 2005?

Is this the reason Bhutto was assassinated, because she knew too much and the powers that be needed her out of the way?

Len Hart of the Existentialist Cowboy writes;

Bhutto herself has exposed the fraudulent nature of the Bush/Blair “war on terrorism”. If Bin Laden is dead, as has been reported, then the various tapes that he is alleged to have made are all phony. The war on terrorism itself is a callous, calculated fraud perpetrated by a murderous Bush regime, a murderous Blair regime, a murderous puppet regime of Musharraf.

That’s why Bhutto was assassinated. She was the woman who knew too much. Bhutto exposed the fact that US policies cause terrorism and she stated the various ways in which groups inside the US and Britain benefited politically and materially from the phony war on phony terrorism, the failed war in Afghanistan, the war crime that is still perpetrated against the people of Iraq. Bhutto posed a threat to the culprits in the Bush regime to include Bush himself. She posed a threat to the kiss ups in Musharraf’s regime to include Musharraf and the liars who tried to float the incredible “lone lever” theory. She was murdered. And the BBC has been caught censoring the most important piece of the puzzle. If Osama is dead, the war on terror is a bloody fraud!

And indeed reactions all over YouTube are quite the same….

May Benazir Bhutto rest in peace, and may peace prevail!

  1. But the exposure of contradictions in the press and by our leaders on the internet is making possible a populist movement that has legs.

    Little stories like this one are mailed around the world and reach many more people than is represented by the hits on this site; it’s an exponential growth phenomenon.  

    We shall overcome.

    Thanks for the update – we had link to the video but didn’t know about the censorship, which sucks.  Hmmm – maybe another reason she was offed.

    I wrote about it here:

    Retired Brigadier supervising Benazir’s security was Osama’s handler, says expert

    Chennai, Oct.19 (ANI): The retired brigadier who was given the responsibility of securing former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s car journey through Karachi on Thursday, used to be the handling officer of Osama bin Laden and Taliban chief Mulla Omar when he was attached with the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

    Disclosing this information in an article for the rediff website, former Additional Secretary in the Cabinet Secretariat, B.Raman says that Brigadier (retired) Ejaz Shah, whose resignation is being demanded by Benazir Bhutto, is a close confidante of President General Pervez Musharraf.

    This was AFTER the first assassination attempt and prior to the successful one.  

    It’s something I have not seen reported anywhere else.

    Rather damning, no?

    I’ll be back later, Happy New Year!

    Don’t drink & drive…it’s not worth it!

    We need you here…


  2. from meteor blades:

    As has been noted across wwwLand, Benazir Bhutto said in a November 2 interview with David Frost that Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh killed Osama bin Laden. The see-we-told-you-so response of many bloggers ignored the fact that Sheikh Omar has been held in custody since February 2002 for the killing of Daniel Pearl, a crime for which he was convicted in July 2002 and sentenced to death. (Whether he actually did or not is much debated, but there is no question he is incarcerated.) Nor has there been much mention of what Bhutto told BBC America a month before the Frost interview, on October 1:

    Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto said on Monday that she might allow a U.S. military strike inside Pakistan to eliminate al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden if she were the country’s leader.

    “I would hope that I would be able to take Osama bin Laden myself without depending on the Americans. But if I couldn’t do it, of course we are fighting this war together and (I) would seek their cooperation in eliminating him,” Bhutto said in an interview on BBC World News America.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, Bhutto misspoke when she said Sheikh Omar had murdered Osama?

  3. But your missing ear plugs, blinders and proper hysterical reactions to the big bad wolf. your critical thinking has not been rendered useless. wow just wow! I knew the tapes, especially the last video, were badly produced put up jobs! Pretty bad work. A pretty flimsy charade to base tearing down a Republic on. Gullibility is not reality.  

    They call this hornets nest of terrorists and assorted vilians necessary for stability, gimme a break! Are they going to do what she asked and have a forensic through investigation by an  outside agency like Scotland yard? How long has Goldstein been dead? How many in our government and intelligence know he’s dead? what a strange thing to think no one would notice or talk about this. The real kicker is why did Condi send her back?

    On the other hand if you follow the links in slugbug’s comment you eventually get to a US News report about a new audio from BL. The comment section is once again a cesspool of pig ignorance religious and secular and fear. What % of the population believes this crap? Will this be swept under the rug of our media that pumps out fiction instead of news?
