1. Here you go.
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/01/28/eveningnews/m...

(CBS) Everyone remembers what happened on Sept. 11 and, reports CBS News Correspondent Barry Petersen, here's the story of what may have happened the night before.

In a tale as twisted as the hunt for Osama bin Laden, CBS Evening News has been told that the night before the Sept. 11 terrorists attack, Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan. He was getting medical treatment with the support of the very military that days later pledged its backing for the U.S. war on terror in Afghanistan.

Pakistan intelligence sources tell CBS News that bin Laden was spirited into a military hospital in Rawalpindi for kidney dialysis treatment.

"On that night," said a medical worker who wanted her identity protected, "they moved out all the regular staff in the urology department and sent in a secret team to replace them." She said it was treatment for a very special person and "the special team was obviously up to no good."



Also, try the Terror Timeline at cooperativeresearch--an excellent resource.

3. Another convert to "The OCT". Welcome.

This wasn't "US medical treatment", BTW.

There's another story of bin Laden getting treatment in France (?). Similar details about "special person", etc, but no named witnesses or definite identification.


edit: to close the quotes.

9. More or less, the OTC is:

A theory that says an airplane became shredded into unidentifiable pieces and that black boxes were never discovered and the greatest air force in the world couldn't do a damn thing and a low-skilled pilot could make an airliner perform impossible moves and the secret service left their object completely exposed for the longest time before he ran scared and the man in charge at the white house gave orders that were never carried out and tall buildings defied physics while falling and those same buildings were the first steel framed to ever fall because of fire and all the warnings from all over the world were ignored and the people who were claimed to have done the deed were found to have addresses from US military bases and had contacts with the FBI, CIA, and foreign governments and whose multi-million dollar finances were deemed to have been of no use to investigate.

I know, I know, it all seems like sheer madness to claim such things, but that pretty much sums up the Official Conspiracy Theory, and duly supported here by Team OCT.

4. here's a similar piece...
CIA agent alleged to have met Bin Laden in July


French report claims terrorist leader stayed in Dubai hospital

Anthony Sampson
Thursday November 1, 2001
The Guardian


Two months before September 11 Osama bin Laden flew to Dubai for 10 days for treatment at the American hospital, where he was visited by the local CIA agent, according to the French newspaper Le Figaro.
The disclosures are known to come from French intelligence which is keen to reveal the ambiguous role of the CIA, and to restrain Washington from extending the war to Iraq and elsewhere.

Bin Laden is reported to have arrived in Dubai on July 4 from Quetta in Pakistan with his own personal doctor, nurse and four bodyguards, to be treated in the urology department. While there he was visited by several members of his family and Saudi personalities, and the CIA.

7. Those Saudi personalities allegedly visiting Osama in Dubai
included Prince Turki al Faisal, who was then head of Saudi Security.

Later Prince Turki served as ambassador to the UK and, after that, to
the United States.
