U.S. has no idea where Osama Bin Laden is

December 6, 2009

(ChattahBox) — In case your hopeful of picking up a newspaper one day and being surpised to find al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden has been killed or captured this might be a disappointment.  In a frank admission on ABC’s This Week, to be aired today, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the U.S. has had no reliable information on the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden. Asked when was the last time the United States had any good intelligence on his whereabouts, Gates said, “I think it’s been years.”

Gates would also not confirm reports about a detainee in Pakistan, who claimed had seen the al Qaeda leader in Afghanistan earlier this year. The detainee allegedly said that in January or February he met a trusted contact who had seen Bin Laden about 15 to 20 days earlier in Afghanistan.
