DO YOU BELIEVE THAT OBAMA REALLY SHOULD GET CREDIT FOR THE DEATH OF OSAMA BEN LADEN
Osama bin Laden May Have Died from Kidney Disease
In a January 19, 2002, news article, Pakistan’s president Pervez Musharraf said he believed that Osama bin Laden had died of kidney disease.
General Musharraf referred to bin Laden as a “kidney patient” and said he believed Osama had died. From the article:
General Musharraf said the multimillionaire had acquired two kidney dialysis machines for use in Afghanistan — one “specifically for his own personal use and the other for general use.”
Do you really think Osama would have been able to survive while running through rugged mountain terrain from the U.S. military for nearly 10 years with two bulky dialysis machines in tow? Don’t you think he would have been easy to kill while tethered to a dialysis machine for dozens of hours every week?
Prominent Physician Claims Osama Was Healthy, But Why?
After multiple news reports revealed that Osama bin Laden was a kidney patient, one prominent physician — Dr. Amer Aziz — claimed that he had treated Osama multiple times and that he “was in excellent health and showed no signs of kidney failure.”
In fact, this November 28, 2002, article — Prominent physician admits to treating Osama bin Laden — directly refutes previous news articles about Osama’s poor health. From the article:
Bin Laden was in strong health on both occasions, said Aziz, a British-educated orthopedic surgeon. He said he saw no evidence that the al-Qaida leader had kidney disease, as has been widely reported, or that he was on dialysis.
Also in this article was this brief — but vitally important — piece of information:
Dr. Amer Aziz, recently released after being held incommunicado and interrogated for a month by FBI and CIA agents, told The Associated Press he knew nothing of al-Qaida’s plans.
There are two reasons I find Dr. Aziz’s testimony suspicious:
- Dr. Aziz’s testimony came more than 10 months after the initial reports that Osama was a kidney patient.
- Even more suspicious, Dr. Aziz’s testimony came after he had been detained and interrogated for a full month by FBI and CIA agents.
Even though Dr. Aziz was “only” detained and interrogated for a month, I imagine it was psychologically and emotionally damaging.
It is also not hard to imagine that Dr. Aziz’s release was conditional upon false testimony that Osama was healthy and had no kidney problems.
Osama Stays in American Hospital in Dubai to See Kidney Specialist
Gary North has written much about Osama bin Laden and his health issues — issues that have gone unreported by mainstream media. In his April 14, 2004, article — Two Long-Ignored Smoking Guns of 9/11 — Gary North writes:
In July, 2001, Osama bin Laden spent at least one week in an American-run hospital in Dubai. He suffers from kidney disease. The U.S. government knew about this visit. It even sent a CIA officer to interview him.
This particular hospital visit is intriguing because it implies Osama was in very poor health just two months prior to 9/11, making his 10-year flight from U.S. military forces even more unbelievable. Continuing on, Gary North quotes himself from one of his prior articles on the subject:
The story of bin Laden’s hospital stay was reported last week in Le Figaro. I cannot imagine a hotter story, yet U.S. newspapers are pretending that it’s not newsworthy — “not worth pursuing.” An Israeli Website has translated the full article from Le Figaro (Oct. 31). This should have been front-page news in every newspaper in America, the lead story on every network. But it doesn’t fit the official government version. The people therefore don’t have a right to know. Or, as we might put it, “All the news that fits.”
Arriving from the airport of Quetta, Pakistan, Osama bin laden was transferred upon arrival at Dubai airport. Accompanied by his personal doctor and faithful lieutenant, the Egyptian Ayman al-Zawahari (though on this latter, the testimony of the eyewitness was not formal), as well as by four body guards and an Algerian nurse, bin Laden was admitted to the American Hospital, a building of glass and marble situated between al-Garhoud Bridge and al-Maktoum bridge.
Each story of the hospital has two VIP suites and around 15 rooms. The millionaire Saudi was admitted to the renowned department of urology headed by Dr. Terry Callaway, an expert on kidney stones and male infertility. In the course of several telephone calls, Callaway did not wish to respond to our questions.
In March 2000 the weekly journal, Asia Week, published in Hong Kong, raised questions about bin Laden’s health, stating that he suffered from a serious physical problem and more precisely that he was in danger due to a kidney infection that had spread to the liver and required the care of a specialist. According to legitimate sources, bin Laden had delivered to a post in Kandahar a mobile dialysis machine sometime in the first part of 2000. According to our sources, “this trip for reasons of Bin Laden’s health” was not the first. Between 1996 and 1998, Osama bin Laden went to Dubai several times for health purposes. . . .
Throughout his stay in the hospital, Osama bin Laden received visits from many family members and Saudi Arabian and emirate personalities of status. During this time, the local representative of the CIA was seen by many people taking the elevator and going to bin Laden’s room. . . .
I share this lengthy excerpt because it corroborates Musharraf’s testimony about Osama’s kidney problems. It also lends more credibility to Musharraf’s assertion that Osama had died of kidney disease in late 2001.
Multiple Sources Say Osama Died in December 2001
In researching and writing about Benazir Bhutto’s misstatement that Omar Sheikh had killed Osama bin Laden, blogger Jen Clark made some interesting discoveries; mainly that multiple news sources say Osama died in December 2001.
Other reports, which seem to make some sense, indicated that Osama bin-Laden died in December 2001. An Egyptian newspaper called al-Wafdpublished the following article (Volume 15 No 4633) on December 26th, 2001:
A prominent official in the Afghan Taleban movement announced yesterday the death of Osama bin Laden, the chief of al-Qa’da organization, stating that binLaden suffered serious complications in the lungs and died a natural and quiet death. The official, who asked to remain anonymous, stated to The Observer of Pakistan that he had himself attended the funeral of bin Laden and saw his face prior to burial in Tora Bora 10 days ago. He mentioned that 30 of al-Qa’da fighters attended the burial as well as members of his family and some friends from the Taleban. In the farewell ceremony to his final rest guns were fired in the air. The official stated that it is difficult to pinpoint the burial location of bin Laden because according to the Wahhabi tradition no mark is left by the grave. He stressed that it is unlikely that the American forces would ever uncover any traces of bin Laden.
If the funeral took place 10 days before this article was published in al-Wafdand The Observer of Pakistan, this would put the death of Osama bin-Laden around the 16th or 17th of December 2001. Israeli intelligence officials also told reporters in October 2002 that they and United States officials believe that Osama bin-Laden had been killed in December 2001.
I followed Clark’s reference to the Israeli news report and found that the article is still online. The article — Israeli intelligence: Bin Laden is dead, heir has been chosen — claims that both Israeli and U.S. intelligence were aware that Osama bin Laden had died. From the article:
The Israeli sources said Israel and the United States assess that Bin Laden probably died in the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan in December. They said the emergence of new messages by Bin Laden are probably fabrications, Middle East Newsline reported.
All these reports of Osama’s death in December 2001 are quite persuasive. But there’s more.
U.S. Government Insider Says Osama Died in 2001
The reports above are further corroborated by a Prison Planet article that proclaims “Bin Laden’s Corpse Has Been on Ice for Nearly a Decade.” From the article:
In April 2002, over nine years ago, Council on Foreign Relations member Steve R. Pieczenik, who served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State under Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, and James Baker, told the Alex Jones Show that Bin Laden had already been “dead for months”. [...] “I found out through my sources that he had had kidney disease. And as a physician, I knew that he had to have two dialysis machines and he was dying,” Pieczenik told Jones during the April 24, 2002 interview.
Steve R. Pieczenik’s testimony cannot be easily dismissed. He’s worked for five U.S. presidents and worked directly with Osama bin Laden in the late 70s and early 80s.
This Pennington Press article quotes Steve R. Pieczenik at length. It is well worth reading. Here’s one of the most relevant excerpts from the article:
Pieczenik said that Osama Bin Laden died in 2001, “Not because special forces had killed him, but because as a physician I had known that the CIA physicians had treated him and it was on the intelligence roster that he had marfan syndrome,” adding that the US government knew Bin Laden was dead before they invaded Afghanistan.
Marfan syndrome is a degenerative genetic disease for which there is no permanent cure. The illness severely shortens the life span of the sufferer.
“He died of marfan syndrome, Bush junior knew about it, the intelligence community knew about it,” said Pieczenik, noting how CIA physicians had visited Bin Laden in July 2001 at the American Hospital in Dubai.
“He was already very sick from marfan syndrome and he was already dying, so nobody had to kill him,” added Pieczenik, stating that Bin Laden died shortly after 9/11 in his Tora Bora cave complex.
This gives even more credence to the theory that Osama bin Laden died more than 9 years ago in the mountains of Afghanistan. If this is indeed true (and I believe it is), then why has the U.S. claimed for nearly 10 years that Osama is still alive? And why has the U.S. all of a sudden “found” Osama, killed him, and sunk his body to the bottom of the ocean just 12 hours after his death?
WHERE'S THE PROOF OBAMA? NO PHOTOS?
