The longest running broadway show, the search for Osama. Without Pakistani ISI officials interference and help for Bin-Laden, the worlds most wanted man would have been caught ages ago, and yet the US continues to pump billions into the Pakistani government. KGS
- Al Qaeda leader alive and well in Kurram Valley region ‘We are running out of time,’ Nato official warns Up to 1m ‘disaffected’ men aged 15-25 in border review
Osama bin Laden is believed to be in north west Pakistan, and his deputy is Ayman al-Zawahiri is nearby
Osama bin Laden is living a comfortable life and hiding out in a house in northwest Pakistan, according to Nato officials.
The Al Qaeda leader has not been scuttled away to a network of caves, but instead is living life as the world’s most wanted man in conventional surroundings.
His deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri is also hiding out in a separate house in an area close to bin Laden under similar arrangements, the official claimed.
After 9/11 the hunt for bin Laden and the Al Qaeda leadership focused on the remote Tora Bora region of Afghanistan which is known for its huge warren of caves burrowed into the mountains.
It now appears he has been moved around on a regular basis to boltholes in the Chitral area of Pakistan in the far northwest and the Kurram Valley, which neighbours Tora Bora.
‘Nobody in Al Qaeda is living in a cave,’ said the official, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the intelligence matters involved.
