Finally. God. I was mildly surprised to see this on BBC, as their recent performance over the past decade has been anything but honest in regarding what they've said about 'sensitive' areas of interest... complicity in 9/11 comes to mind... anyway, I learned this very shortly after I started researching and analyzing the treason of 9/11 back in mid-2002.

Mr. Bin Laden, a man with strong financial and friendship ties to the notorious Bush family, was, after all, a US asset who they used rather a lot for various things over the years. He is reported to be dead. The most interesting report of Osama's demise came from Benazir Bhutto shortly before she was killed. You can learn more about it here in this old High Strangeness post from December 29, 2007: benazir bhutto named the murderer of bin laden. Gotta pay attention folks... and look stuff up! Like they say, the truth is out there.
