Mysterious death and promotion of Mushaf Ali Mir
Air Chief Marshall Mushaf Ali Mir is one of those who died in mysterious circumstances after allegedly being named by former Al Qaeda No. 3 Abu Zubayda as a person with specific foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks.

Three other persons allegedly named by Zubayda also died in mysterious circumstances around the same time. They are: Prince Ahmed bin Salman bin Abdul-Aziz, who died of a heart attack at the age of 43 on 22 July 2002, Prince Sultan bin Faisal bin Turki al-Saud, who died in a single car accident the next day on the way to Prince Ahmed's funeral, and Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Saud al-Kabir, who died of thirst a week later.

The Air Chief Marshall died when his plane crashed in clear weather on 20 February 2003.

It appears that his promotion to Air Chief Marshall is just as mysterious as his death. I found this in an article by a leading Pakistani journalist:
There is one intriguing aspect about Mushaf Ali Mir. He did not enjoy a great reputation in the PAF. He headed the military equipment manufacturing complex at Kamra. In November 2000, Musharraf, who liked Mushaf Ali Mir tremendously, superseded five highly distinguished PAF officers and appointed him chief of the air staff. The supersession of so many officers came in for strong criticism from a number of retired officers. Why did Musharraf feel obliged to promote this mediocre officer, even at the risk of causing widespread unhappiness in the PAF? A question to which there has been no answer.

Perhaps this is the answer:
"June 1996: Bin Laden Meets with Pakistani Military Leaders
Controversial author Gerald Posner claims bin Laden and al-Qaeda leader Abu Zubaida meet with senior members of Pakistan's military, including Mushaf Ali Mir, who becomes chief of Pakistan's air force in 2000."
