2 Days After 9/11 CIA Op Tells Dan Rather Myth of Osama Bin-Laden

Former CIA officer and veteran, Milt Bearden talks to Dan Rather (starts at 32:12), two days after 9/11 occurred, about the "myth of Osama Bin Laden." Bearden, who observed Bin-Laden in action, was not convinced he was capable of masterminding 9/11.

"I know we live in a country where we we're often told the first thing that comes to your mind, put it down...put the little mark in there. I feel slightly uncomfortable bec ause I spent so many years wondering how the myth of Osama Bin Laden got started.  We have the Osama Bin Laden who is the great war hero in Afghanistan; we have the Osama Bin Laden who was trained by the CIA, funded and supported by CIA, during three-years of war. I was there the same time Osama Bin Laden was there. He was not the great war hero that went in and fought the Soviet Union to a stand still. The CIA had nothing to do with him. I think that mythological Osama Bin Laden, never mind that he's an evil man...that there is another man out there.
[...]
This was a tremendously sophisticated operation against the United States...more sophisticated than anything, anyone would ascribe to Osama Bin Laden. I think we need to do a little homework. We need to appoint a 'team b' that looks for somebody else. I'm just not convinced it was Bin-Laden." - Milt Bearden, former CIA officer, speaking to Dan Rather on 9/13/2001.
