According to Muahammad Bashir, an eye witness to the May2nd raid on alleged OBL house in Abbotabad, and a next door neighbor, he was watching the entire operation from the roof of his house. There were three helicopters. Only one landed. About a dozen men got out and entered the house. They shortly returned and boarded the helicopter. When the helicopter lifted off it exploded, killing all aboard.
Mr. Bashir reports seeing bodies and pieces of bodies all over. Meanwhile the US soldiers who undertook the alleged assassination of bin Laden were members of Navy Seal Team 6 who have been killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. In all 31 Americans died, including 22 members of Navy SEALs Team 6. Was that just a grim coincidence? Or is one report somehow related to the other?
OSAMA KILL MISSION BY US NAVY SEALS: AN EYE WITNESS ACCOUNT
by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts / Jeff Prager
Note for WoP readers: First an excerpt from Dr. Paul Craig Roberts’ recent post on the same subject.
Dr. Roberts writes:
Quote: In my recent article, ‘Creating Evidence Where There Is None,’ about the alleged killing of Osama bin Laden by a commando team of US Seals in Abbottabad, Pakistan, I provided a link to a Pakistani National TV interview with Muhammad Bashir, who lives next door to the alleged “compound” of Osama bin Laden. I described the story that Bashir gave of the “attack” and its enormous difference from the one told by the US government. In Bashir’s account, every member of the landing party and anyone brought from the house died when the helicopter exploded on lift-off. I wrote that a qualified person could easily provide a translation of the interview, but that no American print or TV news organization had investigated Bashir’s account. Unquote
Interestingly much before the publication of article by Dr. Roberts, my friend Jeff Prager had got this TV coverage in Urdu translated into English by one of his Pakistani friends and put this up on his Facebook page.
I read the translation also made by a British national of Pakistani origin and that one too is immaculate. But owing to the simplicity adopted by Jeff’s Pakistani friend am putting it up on these pages so that you can yourself decide what happened on 2nd of May 2011 as observed by a person, who actually was present on the scene and reported it to the Pakistani TV. This stands in stark contrast to what the mainstream media propagates worldwide and what the Washington administration maintains.
There is also the original video here, where Bashir speaks on what he heard, what he saw and what he experienced on the day of Osama’s “murder” at the Abbottabad compound.
At the end of the video translation Dr. Roberts continues:
“I asked the translator if he might contact the Pakistani news organization and inquire if the reporters had further investigated Bashir’s story. He replied that he could do so, but exactly 24 hours later “for some unknown reason” the news organization started to discredit Bashir by connecting “him to his cousin, who is accused of receiving foodstuffs from the household of OBL.
Bashir’s cousin is the person who, according to the reporter had a vegetable garden inside the wall of the alleged bin Laden compound. Is it likely that with a hunted and dangerous person hiding within, locals would be permitted to have vegetable gardens inside the compound? The cousin’s vegetable garden obviously had to be redefined as “receiving foodstuffs from OBL.”
“The final seconds of the video clip contain random people to generate and show some kind of sympathy with OBL in the district.
It would be very difficult to find people in Pakistan who sympathise with OBL or the Taliban. The only people who do sympathise are the poor illiterate people who do not know about the religion and can easily be convinced of a distorted version of Islam. Therefore, the closing part of the video contains, out of context expressions:
“1st man: Possibly, people could be happy. (Meaning it is possible that SOME people could be happy.)
2nd man: He wasn’t living here, but he was a Muslim, he believed in Allah. (Meaning; he claimed to be Muslim, so he must have believed in Allah.)
“Therefore, it seems that although initially, the TV station was overjoyed with this interview, they changed their tune, twenty four hours later. (for some unknown reason.)”
Readers can arrive at their own conclusions. It seems clear that under intense pressure and serious threats from the US government, the Pakistani government fell in line with the US government’s claim that a commando raid had killed bin Laden and all had returned safely, and that the TV news organization also got the message to get in line.
It is likely that the many witnesses who observed the dead from the helicopter crash have been warned to keep quiet. However, a news organization, should one be so inclined, could certainly interview Bashir and the 200 others who saw the dead bodies. A good reporter, perhaps accompanied by trained psychologists, would be able to tell if people were lying out of fear and encourage some to speak anonymously.
I am confident that no news organization believes that it could confront such an important US national myth in this way. The killing of bin Laden satisfies the emotional need for revenge and justice. In the least, a news organization that challenged the government’s story would be cut off from all government sources and be denounced by politicians and a large percentage of the US population as an anti-American terrorist-serving organization.
Then there is an old video from year 2007. Benazir Bhutto, a former prime minister of Pakistan and leader of the Pakistan Peoples Patty gave this interview to David Frost.
After the BBC censored this clip and then reinstated it, then some of them now claiming they NEVER censored it, the mystery DEEPENS. With Benazir Bhutto assassinated the motive arises in that she quite clearly leads not only her death to the door of the Pakistanis but also responsibility for the 9/11 attacks are implicated as well. Aired on 2nd November 2007, David Frost the presenter did not challenge her on her assertion that bin Laden was murdered, so may be he was and the West would cover up such a truth, as bin Laden was needed as a “bogeyman” to continue this farcical war on terror, and after bin Laden having been out of the scene, a new man or men will be put in the box to continue this war further.
One month later after her interview given to Dvid Frost, Benazir Bhutto was herself assassinated December 27, 2007.
OBL’s death as well as of Bhutto will remain one of those many “truths” that rest on nothing but the government’s word. [Nayyar]
This is a translation of the video linked at the bottom and was translated by my friend Khan Taashk. THANK YOU my dear friend. I wish there were a way for ALL Americans to read this translation.
Anchor: Welcome back, Mohammad Bashir is a resident of Abbootabad’s Bilal Town. Muhammad Bashir might seem an ordinary guy but he is no ordinary guy. Muhammad Bashir lives in front of Osama Ben Laden’s house in Bilal Town Abbottabad. On 2nd of May, Muhammad Bashir was present on his rooftop from where he saw the whole American operation against Osama Ben Laden with his own eyes. Yesterday when our team was present In Bilal Town, Abbottabad, near Osama Ben Laden’s house, Muhammad Bashir came to us and said, “Sister, I need to tell you something, something that is a burden on my heart and soul”, just listen to what he said.
Bashir: I am going to share something about the Abbottabad operation which till this day nobody else has told you.
Anchor: But Muhammad Bashir was a little afraid too, while talking to me he telephoned hia relative, Vice President of Jummat-e-Islami, Abdur Razzaq Abbasi, watch it
Reporter: Tell me your name and tell me whare do you live
Bashir: Let me first, Let me talk to him one minute, i will give you full interview, full or half?
Reporter: Full Full
Bashir: Let me first talk to him
Bashir: yes, to Abbasi
Anchor: Muhammad Bashir told us something that no one said before. So we checked his identity card, we also onfirmed that he really lives there, we asked from the senior fellows about him. We were very astonished by his story just see and listen what he said.
Bashir: We were awake, not asleep, a helicopter came, some men came down from that, into that house, then that helicopter went away.
Reporter: How many men?
Bashir: 10-12, then that helicopter took rounds of those rear hills, then he came bac…k and when he came bach, two more helicopters arrived, one from the west and other from the north, there was a blast in the first helicopter and it was on fire, we immediately came out, when we reached there, the helicopter was burning, then after about 20 minutes the army and police arrived, they pushed us back, now we are asking that if Osama was here then who took him to America because all those men that came in the helicopter died in the blast, now if Osama was in that helicopter he must have died and got burnt in that helicopter too, then how they took him? This is a question of serious concern. America claims they they killed him and picked him up. How they picked him up? This is what we are thinking .
Reporter: Was there only one helicopter?
Bashir? Yes the other that came, flew away to Mansehra, there was only one that landed the men and came back to pick them but as he was picking them up, it blew away and caught fire.
Reporter: Then they were in it when it blew?
Bashir: Yes They were.
Reporeter : How you know?
Bashir: We saw it with our own eyes
Reporter: You saw dead man?
Bashir: Yes, dead men,
Reporter: How many?
Bashir: I couldnt count them because then the compound was on fire. The gate was open, we went in, the army and police hadnt arrived then, there were some people but they werent stopping them. The whole neighbourhood has seen that but they are silent now.
Bashir: We saw the helicopter burning, we saw the dead bodies, then everything was removed and now there is nothing
Reporter: How many dead bodies you saw?
Bashir: We couldnt count them because they were blown into pieces.
(Arrrrgh…… Loadshedding! power went out. Can’t access the computer. But I have noted down all remaining points. I will explain them, not word to word as I can’t access the video right now, but in my own words. I am from cell phone.)
Here is …the remaining part,
the reporter asked Bashir to narrate the story again.
Bashir said we could see the faces of those men but they were speaking Pashto. I don’t know whether they were Pakistani or American army or people of agencies, as you know that agency people can speak many languages.
May be they were speaking Pashto so that we consider them Pakistani.
They knocked and banged at our doors and told us not to come out.
I laid down on my rooftop and was watching them.
My kids were calling me, I told them to go to their rooms and let me check whats going on.
The reporter asks Bashir, that when he saw that the helicopter was American what was he thinking then?
Bashir said that he got afraid. He didn’t have in his mind that they will attack that house. He thought that they might have come to attack the Pakistan Army.
The reporter asked so when was your cousin Shamraiz taken away?
Bashir : Shamrez was at our home, as the helicopter exploded, me and many others went out of our homes to see what happened. Shamrez also came out and the gate of the compound was open, we went in, every thing was lying scattered, as it is a huge compound, some body parts were lying here, some there, legs, arms, heads, broken and torn body parts, during that time some part of the helicopter inside, may be the engine or other fuel related part had an explosion so we rushed out. During that time Shamrez was taken away, he is in his home now, but no one is allowed to meet him and Icouldn’t get a chance to talk to him later.
Then the anchor says that they had vegetations inside the compound and Shamrez was their gardener. We know that two men Arshad and Tariq used to live there. They had good relations with the neighbours, they used to buy things from the local store. Sometimes imported dates and used to send many things to their neighbours.
Then the reporter is at Abdullah Ben Zubair Mosque, which is the nearest to compound of Osama.
She asks a guy: Do you think people would have been glad and happy if they would have ever met Osama?
The guy : Yes, possibly. Because he was a Muslim and he believed in God.
This is the whole story! Every aspect and point translated. 🙂
Another translation from my dear friend Saba Quraishi, and thank you!!:
Yes Jeff. The two translations are the same as mine. no need to repeat. I will send it to you privately if you wish. The gentleman being interviewed lives across from the compound. His cousin Sahab Shamrez Khan used to grow vegetables in the compound. He was taken away in all the hullabaloo on tape @10.29 Bashir says he did not see when they wisked his cousin away.
Interviewer asks “Have you spoken to your cousin?”
Bashir “No, I have not seen him yet he in in the house. “They will not let him get out” “They will not let me get in.”
Two other men Arshad Sahib and Tariq Sahib used to go to market to shop for that compound and bought international brand items. Dates, dried meat found in compound. Also food used to come from compound to Bashir’s house Kabuli Pilau and things like that used to be presented to Bashir. They will follow up with more information. In the end the lady is standing in front of Abdullah Bin Zubair mosque. The mosque was within walking distance of the compound. She asks people if Osama did attend this mosque people would have been happy? The one answered maybe. The other said Osama did “not” live here but he was Muslim and believed in God. Interview ends.
Another thing to note is that Bashir mentioned that we are very “sharif” meaning law abiding honest people. His town was a peaceful place, no excitement, no murders, fights, and he is unhappy how they have made his town so frightful with all this news. One thing is very clear in this video. Two helicopters hovered, never landed. One landed dropped Pashto speaking poeple on the roof 10-12 of them. Helicopter left for 20 minutes returned to load people in and small blast engine failure fire blew helicopter parts all over. Body parts arms, legs, head, all over. Pakistani Army/Police came in dispersed crowd. The whole scene is cleaned up totally now. No evidence left to examine.
