Hello, the news today was totally dominated by the execution of one Osama Bin Laden although never charged with the 9/11 attacks, it were the victims of that dirty attack that got to express their joy, at least only those that got airtime, understandible as more then half of the New Yorkers believe that attack was orchestrated by cynics within their own government aided by foreign intelligence agencies. Interestingly tonight i heard someone recall that he always had a UN meeting there which for once (that day) was rescheduled from 8AM to 10AM, hmm talk of inside job..
Let me state it clearly, those buildings were very professionally demolished, there was no other way to get rid of that asbestos infested outdated landmark, without getting sued for the healthrisk it was. Murdering thousands of people was obviously not a problem for those psychopaths with the cloud. A measly billion or 2 for the building dwarfed by the 2 trillion dollar black hole the Pentagon announced the evening before and whose admins got visited by a cruise missile a few hours later, leaving nobody to testify.
Right from the start Osama Bin Laden was pointed to, as he once was heard saying using airplanes in an attack could be highly effective. Those that listened in sure picked up on that one.
I'm sure many of the US collaborators have met an untimely death or are under surveillance. Obviously the psychopaths between them have had no such trouble, they've risen in the hyarchy and terrorise the general public these days, frightning them into submissiion. It remains to be seen what happens next , the timing is ideal for another false flag attack, presumably to revenge the martyr Osama.

It's not just misery coming from Pakistan today.....

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was a world-renowned Pakistani musician, primarily a singer of Qawwali, the devotional music of the Sufis (a mystical tradition within Islam). Considered one of the greatest singers ever recorded, he possessed a six-octave vocal range and could perform at a high level of intensity for several hours. Extending the 600-year old Qawwali tradition of his family, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan is widely credited with introducing Sufi music to international audiences.

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was born on October 13, 1948 in the city of Lyallpur (now Faisalabad), Pakistan. He was the fifth child and first son of Fateh Ali Khan, a musicologist, vocalist, instrumentalist, and Qawwal. He began by learning to play tabla alongside his father before progressing to learn Raag Vidya and Bol Bandish. He then went on to learn to sing within the classical framework of khayal. Khan's training with his father was cut short when his father died in 1964, leaving Khan's paternal uncles, Mubarak Ali Khan and Salamat Ali Khan, to complete his training. His first performance was at a traditional graveside ceremony for his father, known as chehlum, which took place forty days after his father's death.

In 1971 Nusrat became the official leader of the family Qawwali party.. Khan's first public performance as the leader of the Qawwali party was at a studio recording broadcast as part of an annual music festival organised by Radio Pakistan, known as Jashn-e-Baharan. Khan sang mainly in Urdu and Punjabi and occasionally in Persian, Brajbhasha and Hindi. His first major hit in Pakistan was the song Haq Ali Ali, the song featured restrained use of Nusrat's sargam improvisations.

In 1979, Khan married his first cousin, Naheed (the daughter of Fateh Ali Khan's brother, Salamat Ali Khan); they had one daughter, Nida.

Early in his career, Khan was signed up by Oriental Star Agencies in the U.K. to their Star Cassette Label. OSA sponsored regular concert tours by Nusrat to the U.K. from the early '80s onwards, and released much of this live material on cassette, CD, videotape and DVD.
In subsequent years, Khan released movie scores and albums for various labels in Pakistan, Europe, Japan and the U.S. He toured extensively, performing in over 40 countries.
Khan contributed songs to, and performed in, many Pakistani films. Real World released 5 albums by him a connection that started when Nusrat teamed up with Peter Gabriel on the soundtrack to The Last Temptation of Christ in 1985.

Khan was taken ill with kidney and liver failure on August 11, 1997 in London, England while on the way to Los Angeles in order to receive a kidney transplant. He died of a sudden cardiac arrest at Cromwell Hospital, London, on Saturday, August 16, 1997, aged 48. After his death, the song "Solemn Prayer", on which Nusrat provided vocals, was used on the Peter Gabriel song "Signal to Noise" ( Up), and on the soundtrack to the Martin Scorsese film Gangs of New York.

Mustt Mustt is the first Qawwali fusion album collaboration between singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and guitarist and producer Michael Brook, although the album itself is credited purely to Khan. It was rock musician Peter Gabriel who suggested that Brook and Khan work together. It was released in 1990 on Gabriel's Real World Records label.

Soulful and hypnotic, Khan's passionate singing on these songs of praise underscores the richness and vitality of Sufi culture. While Qawwali music goes back centuries, the use of synthesizers adds a modern edge to the highly absorbing Mustt Mustt.

The song "Mustt Mustt" was remixed by Massive Attack and was a club hit in the United Kingdom, being the first song in Urdu to reach the British charts.It was later used in an advert for Coca Cola.

Night Song is an album by qawwal Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and guitarist and producer Michael Brook. It was the last album on Real World Records that Khan lived to see finished. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best World Music Album in 1996, but lost out to The Chieftains' album Santiago.

With West African kora and electronic backing and Nusrat singing in a relaxed mid-range voice, the opener "My Heart, My Life" sounds almost like a Salif Keita ballad as it works up to its energized closing chant. Not until the fifth of eight tracks, "Longing," do we hear Nusrat's signature scat singing and his singular wail, unmistakable even when lavished with effects. "Sweet Pain" might be the strongest track, beginning deep in dream space with a wandering bassline and a simple backbeat, and then heating up to powerful close with Nusrat delivering spitfire scat. Summing up, this is perhaps the most experimental of Khan's albums, including Senegalese and classically trained musicians.
