Pakistan: Al-Qaeda claims Bhutto's death


www.blacklistednews.com

Karachi - A spokesperson for the al-Qaeda terrorist network has claimed responsibility for the death on Thursday of former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
“We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat [the] mujahadeen,” Al-Qaeda’s commander and main spokesperson Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid told Adnkronos International (AKI) in a phone call from an unknown location, speaking in faltering English. Al-Yazid is the main al-Qaeda commander in Afghanistan.

This article goes on to state that Bin Laden's handling officer was the head of Bhutto's security. It also claims that this attack was decided by Al Qaeda's No. 2 man Ayman-al Zawahiri back in October. As soon as Bhutto came back into her country, you had to know that someone was planning her death. According to this, it was Al-Qaeda.

Great point. I have no idea anymore who is who. No. 2, No. 3, who cares about there rank. If you are in the organization, you should always be a number one suspect in my book. One can't believe that Bin Laden didn't know this was coming. Even the No. 2 (no matter who it is) has to answer to Numero Uno.

Amen to that. The group is still a CIA offshoot, and can't be trusted. It's extremely convenient that they can get this info out to the masses within a few hours of the event.

It's bogus. I don't believe this any more than I believe they were responsible for any other even they claim to have organized.

Its really insulting, to say the least.

You know "they" think most of us are VERY stupid. Of course they want to claim responsibility right away. It is their way of doing things. It makes people think that we have to watch out for Al-Qaeda because you never know when they might strike. I hope your "they" does refer to Al-Qaeda by the way.

Either way, my geuss is that this story is going to change a hundred times over in the next days/weeks to come.

WRONG, PALEHORSE.

I refer to whoever is responsible for putting out this crap story within hours. Tell me something?
How do you know AL QAEDA CLAIMS THEY DID IT? Because you read it and heard on tv, or a newsource someplace. Right?

How do you know you're not being lied to? How do you know this isnt propaganda? Just answer me this question.

It could have been many people or different organizations who took a hit on her, btw, the modus operendei is so not Al Qaeda....A gun blast to the head THEN a guy blows himself up. la la la la lalala, he chants just before detonating his bomb.

Give me a break. I respect your opinion, but i think you should reconsider, or at least give it a little more thought?

No, no, no. you've got me all wrong. My intent is not to necessarily agree with what is presented. Of course you cannot make an absolute certain assessment of who is responsible. Tell me you didn't know that this was going to happen, that a group, be it Al-Qaeda or any other, was going to step forth right away and stake claim. As I said before, I am sure that this story is going to change over and over again. This was the first article that I saw on someone taking claim. I felt it necessary to submit in order to start conversation as to how crazy it is that we are already thrown into the thought that it must be Al-Qaeda. And to answer your question: Of course I do not know if I am being lied to. Do any of us ever know when we are being told the truth or told lies about anything anymore? the way things are going, I believe hardly anything that is put out by the media. But how else are we supposed to discuss the things happening around us? Do you believe half of the stories that are reported even on this site? It goes without saying that we never get the real proof that any of us are looking for. All we can do is speculate most of the time. This is how discussions and ideas are brought forth. We are so led to believe that Al-Qaeda is behind all of the terrorist's actions. People will do anything to link them some way some how with these events. Please try not to judge me so quickly next time.
Thought I would add this in for you as I also read this article and planned to include it in the discussion:

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Benazir Bhutto was the target of threats from virtually all of the militant groups who make Pakistan their home — from al-Qaida to homegrown terrorists to tribal insurgents on the Afghan border.

Bhutto target of many groups

Ok. Let me give you this one too as reported by CNN.com.


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN -- The Pakistani Interior Ministry said Friday the suicide bomber who killed Benazir Bhutto has been identified as belonging to a militant group with links to al Qaeda, Pakistan's GEO TV reported......Also Friday, a report by the state-run news agency Associated Press of Pakistan said al Qaeda had claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement.


So how convenient is it that CNN also reports Al-Qaeda link? How many others can we find that also link Al-Qaeda.....I'm sur I know longer need to give more examples.

CNN report

pakistani govt' claimed they intercepted a congratulatory message fom an al qaida leader. pres. Musharaf's "gov't", whose main rival is bhutto, which is also a legit suspect.

anyways, there was an actual video of the attack, showing bhutto waving and boom. wonder if anyone got it here? can't find it on net.

ironic .....
since they can intercept their mail or messages ....
where was the same intercepted messages that gave the order
to assassinate Bhutto???

I guess that one was overlooked .....

it's funny how they can intercept and report to media of intercepted
messages from Al Queda ONLY when it suits their own agenda (ISI).

There are a number of groups that would want to assasinate Bhutto. She was "westernized" (educated at Yale I think--another source says the UK) and a woman who was not sufficiently subservient to suit some Muslims--she didn't even wear a veil. She was thought to be sympathetic to the U.S. Those things might point to an Islamic fundamentalist group like Al-Qaeda. She was also a threat to her political rivals within Pakistan. Whoever was responsible, her death is a great loss to the world. That seems to be overlooked in the dispute over who did it. Why is it important that the assasin not be connected to Al-Qaeda?

Think about this for a second. Muslims are not crazed animals, and I think most people, not even fundamentalist Muslims, would kill a public figure just for not wearing a veil.

There is another agenda here, most likely not al-Qeida related. Why is mostly everybody (well... obviously not in this forum, but everywhere) so quick to defend the media's stance on things?

Like somebody else said, the story will most likely change a bunch fo times, and people will just buy it because they don't pay attention enough to all the lies and conjecture and contradictions that the media puts out there, just to confuse and disillusion the people that actually do pay attention.

I mean, is there ever just one official story anymore?

No wonder everyone is so apathetic.

Actually, I believe she was a Harvard alum and an Oxford Alum. Very highly educated. One of the reasons why she is hated by middle eastern Muslims and fundamentalists alike. She was key player for US agenda. I agree with Indirockalien. This story will, as I said previously, change time and again. We probably will never know the real key pieces of information so that we all get the true story. Most mainstream media does tick me off and I tend not to believe a word they say. they always start a story one day, then it seems the very next day they print the exact opposite. I guess that is their job right? LOL

Palehorse, i wasnt knocking your thread. I'm sorry it sounded like i was arguing with you. I've just had it with the lies, and i dont beleive anything anymore.
Since this happened of course, there have now been many stories, changing stories, no bullet, etc.
So my point is its just not possible to come to any conclusion. Its not just this government that lies, its the whole world.
These are incredible times!
