Middle East War and Occupation: Did Bin Laden Die in 2001? (VIDEOS)

Max Eternity - If the suspected terrorist Osama Bin Laden--said to be responsible for the demolition of the World Trade Center--is deceased. And if there are and never were any Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD's) in the hands of the also now deceased--assassinated by the US military--Iraqi President, Saddam Hussein, why has the US government spent more than a trillion dollars over the last decade--sacrificing the lives of thousands of US soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Middle East civilians--at war, bombing and occupying Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan?
Before her assassination, Pakastani Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto stated that she knew of Bin Laden's death, reportedly saying that Bin Laden had been murdered. Other reliable sources have also drawn a parallel conclusions, like noted theologian David Ray Griffin, a best-selling author who's latest book is entitled "Osama bin Laden Dead or Alive?" Too this, several publications like the Daily Mail (Mail Online) and Veterans Today, have written of the likelyhood of Bin Laden's death.
So, why was Bhutto murdered and is Bin Laden dead after all?
If in fact he is, with it being widely known that he was suffering from kidney failure, at least since 2001, is that what actually killed him--failed kidneys? Or, was he murdered as Bhutto says?
Though regardless of how he might have died, if he has been dead for many years now, why hasn't the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), M16 or the White House issued a statement making this fact abundantly clear to the public? Or is this information being intentionally suppressed by these authorities? If so, then the question becomes, why?
What would the US and UK governments have to gain by hiding the details surrounding the real possibility that Osama Bin Laden is, has been dead for a long time now? Might the answers lie in a document, written and endorsed by high-ranking Neocons in 2000, published by the Project for a New American Century (PNAC)? Or might it have something to do with former FBI translator, Sibel Edmonds', report that Bin Laden worked for the CIA until 2001?
Under the leadership of President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, admitted earlier this year that the US government was "working behind the scenes" to destabalize the Iranian government. And like the prior administration did with Iraq, the current White House has justified its covert, aggressive, unilateral actions with the excuse that Iran is securing WMD's--nuclear bombs.

Was Bush, and is now Obama, hiding something?

Should there be a new investigation into the events surrounding September 11, 2001?

Exactly what else has the public not been told?
