Gerald Posner is the investigative journalist and he claim that the death of Mushaf Ali Mir was not an accident but an act of interruption. He alleged in his book namely “WHY AMERICA SLEPT” and why they could not predict in enhance the 9/11, and also the Osama Bin Laden deal through his friend Abu Zubaydah with Pakistani Inter-Service Intelligence through Mushaf Ali Mir in 1996 to get protection, arms and supplies for Al-Qaeda. Interestingly Air Chief Marshal Mushaf Ali Mir was also reluctant to stipulate some air bases to America for the invasion at Afghanistan after 9/11 which comprise Jacobabad and Shaheen Air base of Sargodha e.t.c.
Three protuberant member of Saudi Royal family died in mysterious circumstances, Prince Ahmed bin Salman, a nephew of the Saudi King, prominent businessmen and owner of the winning 2002 Kentucky Derby horse, was died to a heart attack at the age of 43. The very next day Prince Sultan bin Faisal, another nephew of King died while driving to Prince Ahmed’s funeral and a week later, Fahad bin Turki hypothetically died due to the thirst in the Arabian dessert. Seven months later the plane of Pakistani Air Force Chief Mushaf Ali Mir, crashed in the air.
Controversial Gerald Posner also indicates that all these confrontations linked to each other and the death of all these worth personalities are not unintentional, but have created due to the acknowledgments of captured Al-Qaeda leader Abu Zubayda in March, 2002 from Pakistan. The deaths transpired not long after the respective governments were told of Abu Zubayda revelations. Only one more personality whom named taken by Abu Zybayda remains alive and that was Saudi Intelligence Minister Prince Turki al Faisal, Poser also said about him that he is the J. Edger hoover of Saudi Arabia, which means too powerful and aware of too many secrets to be killed off. Prince Turki al Faisal was removed from Intelligence minister responsibility ten days before 9/11 and later sends him the Saudi Ambassador to the United Kingdom giving him diplomatic immunity from any criminal prosecution.
BOI (Board of Inquiry) held by the Government of Pakistan (Musharraf regime) immediately, thereafter the plane crashed of Pakistani Air Force Chief Mushaf Ali Mir in the air, and the findings of the same BOI are still mysterious, why after almost eight years of this incident in which we lost the great personality with his colleagues and staff are still questionable who were behind this incident, what are the outcomes of BOI, who is responsible, who did this, why the fingers at the CIA and FBI, why not fingers at R&AW, It is an old tradition to put the blame at the pilot because he also no more alive with others, however during flight of any air craft pilot constantly remain in touch with the ATC (Air Traffic Control) room, who always have the strong influence at the assertions of the BOI of such a major disaster or might such incidents occurred due to the inclination and evade of internal people. It is also very horrible during the Military government, always the plane of the top most officials of military collided in the air.
