"Therefore, it seems that although initially, the TV station was overjoyed with this interview, they changed their tune, twenty four hours later. (for some unknown reason.)"

Readers can arrive at their own conclusions. It seems clear that under intense pressure and serious threats from the US government, the Pakistani government fell in line with the US government's claim that a commando raid had killed bin Laden, and that the TV news organization got the message to get in line also.

It is likely that the many witnesses who observed the dead from the helicopter crash have been warned to keep quiet. However, a news organization, should one be so inclined, could certainly interview Bashir and the 200 others who saw the dead bodies. A good reporter, perhaps accompanied by trained psychologists, would be able to tell if people were lying out of fear and encourage some to speak anonymously.

I am confident that no news organization believes that it could confront such an important US national myth in this way. The killing of bin Laden satisfies the emotional need for revenge and justice. In the least, a news organization that challenged the government's story would be cut off from all government sources and be denounced by politicians and a large percentage of the gullible US population as an anti-American terrorist-serving organization. They could even be arrested for giving aid and comfort to the enemy. In America today, truth-tellers are the last thing the government and much of the brainwashed public wants to here.

OBL's death will remain one of those many "truths" that rest on nothing but the government's word.

UPDATE September 2013  

When is the last time the US government told the truth about anything? Despite an unbroken history of lies, the word of the US government still carries weight, especially with gullible Americans.

The link in my original article to the interview with Bashir has been taken down. This might be the original Pakistani National TV interview.

In another interview the BBC interviewed 50 residents of Abbottabad. The residents said that it was impossible that Osama bin Laden lived in their midst without their knowledge. The person who lives next door to the alleged "bin Laden compound" said that the resident shown in the American photo was not bin Laden, but his neighbor whom he knew well. The Pakistanis say the killing of bin Laden is an American hoax.

The Obama regime's story of the murder of bin Laden is nonsensical. The fact that the regime would tell such a preposterous story indicates that Washington regards the American and international public as gullible morons, people lacking any ability to discern the truth of what they are officially told.

Who can believe that the "terror mastermind," the head of what is said to be the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world, would be left alone, unguarded and unarmed, with only two women to protect him? Who can believe that such a defenseless person with such essential information for Washington's war on terror would simply be shot on sight by US Navy SEALs? Why would Washington waste such an archive of information?

Why would Washington forego the triumph of parading their captive before the world and confronting him in a courtroom with his crimes?

Why would Washington dump the body secretly into the sea without even having photographic evidence to back the story? Why would Washington tell such a preposterous story for which it can supply no evidence whatsoever?

Why would Obama, faced with a re-election campaign, forego the patriotic publicity of a White House ceremony at which he pins medals on the victorious SEALs? What politician would forego such an opportunity?

Do you really believe that the SEALs' identity had to be protected in order to keep them safe from terrorists, or that Obama would let his re-election take a backseat to such a consideration?

No politician would handle the capture of Osama bin Laden in such a politically wasteful way. Can you imagine a politician throwing away such marvelous opportunities for PR events? Can you imagine an intelligence service destroying such a valuable source of information without interrogating Osama bin Laden?

Now consider this: The Obama regime claims to have given bin Laden a proper Muslim burial at sea from an aircraft carrier, the Carl Vinson, named after a U.S. Representative from Georgia who served in the House for more than 50 years and is known as "the father of the two-ocean Navy." The aircraft carrier has approximately 6,000 personnel. From emails that sailors sent home to family and friends, none witnessed the sea burial of bin Laden.
