Could the fake bin Laden watching TV in video, referenced as “Akbar Khan” on BBC, be related to Arshad Khan?

UPDATE, Related:

*Financial Times story verifies that Akbar Khan (man named as actual person in ‘seized bin Laden video’) really existed and owned the residence

*Bloomberg named “Akbar Khan” (aka fake bin Laden watching TV in video) as co-owner of supposed bin Laden compound

*Rupee News also identified fake bin Laden in video as “Akbar Khan, the landord”

5/11/11

By Andrew Steele 

In this video report from BBC, locals in the city of Abbottabad– where bin Laden was allegedly killed– express their opinion that what the White House says happened in their city on May 1st, 2011 was  not what we were told.  One person named Shabir tells reporter Orla Guerin that the old man featured in the video that has recently been released– supposedly showing an aged bin Laden watching himself  on TV– is in fact Shabir’s neighbor– “Akbarhan” or “Akbar Khan”, who he claims to know very well, and who he says owned the place where the raid happened.   

(Thanks to  for posting the video.)

Whoever he is, the old man in the video is certainly not Osama bin Laden.  By looking at pictures of the man watching TV and an earlier shot of bin Laden from an ABC News interview years ago, it’s clear that the ears and cheekbones are different, as well as the facial hair growth patterns.

1) Ears

 

2) Cheekbones and Facial Hair

While nothing else has been said about “Akbar Khan” in the media, people in Abbottabad told Xinhua that the compound was bought by Arshad Khan, who they believed to be a resident of Charsadda in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.   Arshad Khan, we’re told, was bin Laden’s courier who lived at the compound with his wife, and with his brother– Tariq– and Tariq’s wife, though the women were housed separately from the men.  The mainstream media has reported that Arshad was tracked by U.S. intelligence, leading them to discover that bin Laden was living in the place where he would eventually die.   

According to the Pakistani Nation, the bin Laden home was registered under a fake name:

“National identity card of the owner of the house where Al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden was hiding was found bogus.
According to a private television channel, the identity card bearing the name of the house owner as Arshad s/o Naqeeb, said to be a resident of Tangi Fas area of Charsadda.

According to local NADRA office, the card has been bogus. The residents of Tangi area also said that no man with such name was residing in the area.”

Though Arshad Khan was said to be Pakistani, Gulf News reported that the  house had been rented by Afghan nationals and that the compound was once owned by the Pakistani government, formerly used as an ISI safehouse.   Though it’s not clear if the actual house where bin Laden was allegedly killed had ever been used by the ISI, a senior intelligence official told the Gulf News, “…. (the compound) was not under their use any more because they keep on changing their locations”.

Shabir, who referenced “Akbar Khan” on BBC, couldn’t have reasonably confused Arshad Khan with the old man watching TV in the video.  Unlike Osama bin Laden, Arshad Khan’s death photo has been released.  He looks nothing like the old man we’re supposed to believe is the boogeyman that the U.S. government has been hunting for years. 

(The UK Daily Mail shows a pixelated photo and identifies it as Arshad Khan HERE.  A non-pixelated version can be found HERE.  Warning, the picture is graphic.)

If Shabir was telling the truth and Akbar Khan exists, the question needs to be asked— could he be an older relative of Arshad and Tariq Khan that had stayed at the compound at one time or another?  That would explain the video being found there and indeed who the old man watching TV probably is.
