The Guardian | James Astill: email from the Congo:  Story of emerging from the forest near Bukavu.  11:10:56 PM  permalink  

Pearl 'killed over secrets': "France's leading philosopher Bernard-Henri Levy, says that American journalist Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan last year was killed because he knew too much" about

  • the involvement of Pakistan's intelligence service with Islamic extremists
  • British-born Islamic militant Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, convicted of killing Mr Pearl was in fact a double agent working for Pakistan's intelligence service (ISI)
  • "Everyone knows that Pakistan is a nuclear power but Daniel discovered that the nuclear weapons were less controlled than Mr Musharraf pretends and less under control than the secret services of occidental powers believe."
  • Pearl had uncovered information about a shadowy Muslim leader known as Gillani who grew up in the US was a "guru" to Bin Laden and followers like the shoe bomber

In an interview, Levy said his objection to the war on Iraq was not that it was a bad thing to do, or that the procedure was wrong, but rather that the real menace is in Pakistan.
