In 1989, when UBL still worked for the US and NATO.
The Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari brands the al-Qaeda
leader-in-hiding, Osama bin Laden, a Washington operative who sought
to topple Bhutto's government.
"In fact, my wife [Benazir Bhutto] warned America about Osama bin
Laden in 1989. She rung up George Bush senior and asked him: 'Are you
trying to destabilize my government?' because he paid the then
opposition USD 10 million to overthrow the first woman elected in the
Islamic country. So we knew that he was your operator," Zardari stated
in an interview with NBC's Meet the Press .
Bhutto's widower claimed that Pakistani forces had arrested bin Laden
around the same time and had handed him over to American forces who
then lost him in Afghanistan mountains.
