Did Bhutto Mean to Say Bin Laden was Murdered?

Rusty Shackleford at The Jawa Report links to the video of this November 2007 Benazir Bhutto interview with David Frost in which she says Osama Bin Laden was murdered by Omar Sheikh in 2002.

Rusty follows up the video with this:

Apparently Bhutto knew people -- very bad people -- were out to kill her, but what is this deal with "Omar Shiekh" who she claims "murdered Osama bin Laden"? Either she knew something super-sikret, or she, like so many in the developing world, believed in elaborate conspiracies based on rumor and innuendo.

Curt at Flopping Aces wonders if she meant to say Daniel Pearl, but as Allahpundit notes, Frost doesn't pick up on the Osama was murdered comment, so he doesn't ask Ms. Bhutto to clarify her statement. Since she's now dead, we'll never know if she actually meant to say OBL.

Hat tip: Stop the ACLU

Laura Mansfield reports that Islamic websites have announced a new Bin Laden tape is going to be released. The SITE Institute is waiting for the release of the video as well. As soon as it is, I'll link to it.

Might I suggest that you NOT link to the Osama video. Giving the man publicity is what encourages him and strokes his ego. I think we need to ignore him.

Perhaps US(NSA/CIA) or UK(M6/ScotlandYard) told her to "embed" such words. Once embedded those words would ricochet around the word that Usama ibn Ladin was indeed dead, hence Bush and Tony Blair...Then once the words are out, eliminate the "messenger"...kaboommm the rest of the story is moot. American, Brits and the World were lied for 5 years.
