Proof of Osama’s death, or proof of media credibility has vanished?

Aug 7th, 2011 | By | Category: Conspiracy Theories, Jang, The News

The News (Jang Group)A sensational headline on the front page of The News (Jang Group) announces the latest conspiracy theory concocted to confuse the masses over Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound and the US raid that killed him. The News reports that US chopper crash removes all proof of Osama’s death, but is it all proof of Osama’s death, or all proof of Jang Group’s credibility that has vanished?

According to the article by Khalid Mahmood Khalid, “The only proof of the death of Osama Bin Laden (OBL) were the 20 Navy SEALs reportedly on board this helicopter and all of them died”.

This is not so according to US officials as reported by The New York Times.

American officials said that 22 of the dead were Navy Seal commandos, including members of Seal Team 6. Other commandos from that team conducted the raid in Abbottabad, Pakistan, that killed Bin Laden in May. The officials said that those who were killed Saturday were not involved in the Pakistan mission.

But the problems with The News report do not stop there. Khalid Mahmood Khalid goes further, suggesting that the Americans killed their own troops in order to cover up the conspiracy. Quoting an Indian TV report, Khalid says, “Now no one can say with certitude whether the helicopter had in fact met an accident or there were some other reasons of its destruction”.

But wait. The report by New York Times tells a different story.

In the deadliest day for American forces in the nearly decade-long war in Afghanistan, insurgents shot down a Chinook transport helicopter on Saturday, killing 30 Americans, including some Navy Seal commandos from the unit that killed Osama bin Laden, as well as 8 Afghans, American and Afghan officials said.

The helicopter, on a night-raid mission in the Tangi Valley of Wardak Province, to the west of Kabul, was most likely brought down by a rocket-propelled grenade, one coalition official said.

According to American officials, it was not an accident but a rocket attack by Afghan militants, and Taliban has claimed responsibility.

Does this mean that Taliban have killed the SEALs to cover up an American conspiracy? Ridiculous.

It should be noted that Khalid Mahmood Khalid appears to have done no actual research for this article as he refers throughout the piece to “According to an Indian TV channel”. Is this the state of Pakistani journalism? Sitting and watching Indian TV and then spinning fantastic conspiracy theories from their reports?

What appears on the front page of Jang Group’s The News does not remove all proof of Osama’s death. It may, however, remove all proof of Jang Group’s credibility.
