Khawar Munir Haroon nAccording to Dr Steve R. Pieczenik, a psychiatrist who has treated CIA employees, "Osama was dead in 2001" and 9/11 was, in any case, a farce. When a person with the inside knowledge of the American intelligence system says so it is hard not to believe him. Mr Pieczenik cannot be dismissed as a conspiracy theorist. He served on important posts with Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan and Bush Sr. He was Deputy Assistant Secretary of State with the first three and also as senior policy planner under Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance and James Baker. The former US Navy Captain still works as a consultant for the Department of Defence and is recipient of two prestigious Harry C. Solomon awards at the Harvard Medical School, as he simultaneously completed a PhD at MIT. He has a long list of credentials that can be found through the internet. He says: "Osama was suffering with Marfan syndrome", and he died in 2001, "not because the 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. The US government knew he was dead before they invaded Afghanistan. Bush Jr knew about it, the intelligence community knew about it. CIA physicians had visited bin Laden in July 2001 at the American Hospital in Dubai." Marfan syndrome is a degenerative genetic disease for which there is no permanent cure. The illness severely shortens the lifespan of the sufferer. Then why to dramatise Osama's capture, his murder and then throwing the dead body in the sea? What is the message sent out? Who gained and who are the losers? The CIA failed on 9/11 or did it? It is a Zionist plan that is gradually unfolding. It is a pity that the poor Americans are so naive that they cannot read between the lines. They are mechanised robots. They do not have time to go through the political jigsaw. Most of them only understand what is fed to them by the media, which is primarily owned and operated by the Jews. They are fleecing the people of America who are being practically controlled by Israel. Don't we know who controls the American economy? Don't we know about the owners of US gold reserves? Why moves aimed at destabilisation are under way in our part of the world? Who are the actors behind the stage? Who are the supporters of the terrorist groups operating in Pakistan? Are we not aware of the funding channels of these plunderers? The answer is short and crisp. It is the Israeli perpetrators. They are there in the guise of our so-called religious brethren and friends. So Where are we, the Pakistanis? Are we being commanded and controlled by the puppets of those who are actually pulling the strings of the so-called world superpower? Was the Osama bin Laden incident in Abbottabad an intelligence failure or was it a failure of the whole governing machinery? Answer is not only easy, but also simple to understand. The USA, by virtue of this amazing Hollywood drama, has achieved the aim of maligning one of the best of armies and a highly efficient intelligence organisation which has not only played a major role in throwing the Russians out of Afghanistan, but has also broken the backbone of the notorious terrorist groups. It is a pity to point a finger at one of the finest fighting arms of the world, which has sacrificed more than 2,500 officers only. The killed ratio of officers and other ranks stands at around 1:3. No army has ever sacrificed so much. Even the Americans cannot come closer to this ratio. An organisation, which can sacrifice its coveted sons for the soil of Pakistan, can never betray it. It is easy to talk against rather than face hardship and shed blood. Dr Pieczenik reveals the hidden agenda. In order to enhance his fading popularity, President Obama had to do something. The birthing issue was blowing up; his approval ratings were plummeting. The hoax, the drama at Abbottabad had to be enacted. He (Obama) had to prove that he was more than Americanhe had to be aggressive," said Pieczenik, adding that "the farce was also a way of isolating Pakistan as a retaliation for intense opposition to the Predator drone programme, which has killed hundreds of Pakistanis. This is orchestrated, I mean when you have people sitting around and watching a sitcom, basically the operations centre of the White House, and you have a President coming out almost zombie-like telling you they just killed Osama bin Laden who was already dead nine years ago." The whole episode is, "the greatest falsehood I've ever heard, I mean it was absurd." Controlling authorities of the Americans are once again bent upon convincing them to sacrifice their sons. They want to put their sons at the altar of global hegemony once more. They are dramatising another time like Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. It is a wakeup call for us Pakistanis. It is time now to pinpoint the fifth columnists. Now is the time to bring to the dock those people with vested interests and a hidden agenda, who are funded by those whose agenda pays no attention to the welfare and progress of Pakistan.
