Skip to comments.WikiLeaks: Osama bin Laden 'protected' by Pakistani security
Posted on 05/02/2011 11:24:06 AM PDT by mojito
American diplomats were told that one of the key reasons why they had failed to find bin Laden was that Pakistans security services tipped him off whenever US troops approached.
Pakistans Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISID) also allegedly smuggled al-Qaeda terrorists through airport security to help them avoid capture and sent a unit into Afghanistan to fight alongside the Taliban.
The claims, made in leaked US government files obtained by Wikileaks, will add to questions over Pakistans capacity to fight al-Qaeda.
In December 2009, the government of Tajikistan warned the United States that efforts to catch bin Laden were being thwarted by corrupt Pakistani spies.
According to a US diplomatic dispatch, General Abdullo Sadulloevich Nazarov, a senior Tajik counterterrorism official, told the Americans that many inside Pakistan knew where bin Laden was.
The document stated: In Pakistan, Osama Bin Laden wasnt an invisible man, and many knew his whereabouts in North Waziristan, but whenever security forces attempted a raid on his hideouts, the enemy received warning of their approach from sources in the security forces.

It’ll be interesting to see what names,numbers, and contact info turns up in Bin Laden’s paper trail/computers.
This administration is going to DROP THE BALL on the War On Terror. They are already declaring “mission accomplished” even though an international criminal conspiracy shielded Osama in the wake of 9-11.
Obama gives billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.

The mainstream media remains silent on this but the International News has now picked up the story http://www.thenews.com.pk/top_story_detail.asp?Id=22164
and then there is Obamas $108 billion IMF bailout scheme http://michellemalkin.com/2009/05/13/obamas-100-billion-imf-bailout-scheme/
in addition to the Supplemental.
OBL being alive was the raison-d’etre for billions in US aid to corrupt Pakistani elites; the key was for Pakistani leaders to endlessly APPEAR to fight OBL.
Why would they stop the gravvy train?
They harbored him, and they are enemies of the USA, and they should DIE.
They chose... poorly.
Perhaps time to end all foreign aid to Pakistan, particularly military aid.
