Disinformation: Noman Benotman's 'open letter to Osama bin Laden'

Who is Noman Benotman, and should we trust him?

The Quilliam Foundation claims that it is "a think tank." You would think that their website would have some thoughtful articles by Mr. Benotman. Yet we couldn't find a single article by Mr. Benotman at their website

According to his employer: "Noman Benotman has been appointed as Senior Analyst (Strategic Communications) at Quilliam. He is leading Quilliam’s work on de-radicalisation processes in the UK and abroad, working to raise international awareness of Jihadist recantations, co-ordinating Quilliam’s outreach to current and former extremists and using Quilliam as a platform from which to share his inside knowledge of al-Qaeda and other Jihadist groups with a wider audience."

As a Senior Analyst, surely Mr. Benotman is familiar with the work of Prof. David Ray Griffin.

Prof. Griffin, in a thoroughly researched article, claims, "Osama bin Laden has been dead for many years", and "that there is not even any good evidence for the claim that bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks."

Indeed, the evidence against Bin Laden, promised by Secretary of State Colin Powell on September 23, 2001, has yet to be made available to the public, and the FBI states that it has "no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11".

Noman Benotman's "open letter to Osama bin Laden" is disinformation. It is intended to keep alive the myth that Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks of September 11, 2001, and to permit the US to claim victory by staging the death of Osama bin Laden.
