Report: Pakistan Did Not Know Where OBL was Hidden

| July 24, 2019

Several sources including NDTV report that Former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director General David Petraeus has said that he is “convinced” that the Pakistani intelligence agencies did not know Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan.

This conflicts with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s claims that the ISI provided a lead to the CIA that helped the US track down and kill the terror group al-Qaeda’s chief in 2011.

David Petraeus said that during counter-insurgency campaigns, Pakistani authorities could never close in on North Wazirstan where terror outfits such as the Haqqani network, al-Qaeda and others had their headquarters and some of their forces.

He added that the US learnt later on that Osama bin Laden was not in that area but near the Pakistan Military Academy in Abbottabad. “I figured out later that I had probably flown right over his compound in a helicopter as I went to address the cadets at the military academy one time,” he said, referring to the Pakistan Military Academy.

Sometimes that is the best place to hide – right in plain sight.

    Well,
    I blame this on Clinton. Bill not Hillary.

    If Hillary were in charge, she’d have suicided him. Oh wait, she’d have sucked his dick probably. Or was that Bill?

    Yeah, either way.

    Oh, wait, is that Walkabout Bowe peeking out from behind OBL?

    Inquiring minds want to know./s

      That would require Bergie-bitch to be a pitcher, which he clearly ain’t.

      Unless, of course, Osama’s back was facing the camera.

    It could be; he was hangin with his Taliban/Al Qaeda bros. He was clearly “very close” to that fellow photographed with his arm around Bergboi.

      The deserter was photographed with Badruddin Haqqani. Badruddin was rumored to be a big fan of buggery. Both of them were smiling in the pic. They appeared to really like each other.
      Side note: Badruddin is currently taking a dirt nap courtesy of the USA.

        Good to know his charming visage will no longer be seen in the present. Wish we could say the same for Bergboi.

        As far as the statement the Paki ISI government helped us locate OBL, that is clearly fake news (aka prodga propaganda). Our own intel was the only way we found him. The only Pakistani that helped us was that doctor the Pakis incarcerated for what, yeah helping us ID bin Laden by his DNA matching the kids the doc inoculated in his compound. Trump should apply pressure to get that doc released, cuz the corrupt CIA won’t do anything to help him.

    Is Petraeus also dipping his toes into the bridges-and-other-landmarks real estate business? This sounds about as credible as his wedding vows.

    Bin Laden’s location got leaked when he failed to pay off ISI to their liking.

    • Mason says:

      I don’t buy it that the Pakistanis didn’t know he was there either.

        “…didn’t know…” Riiiiiggghhttt

        I’ll take Beach Front Cabana Property in Elko NV for $1000.00 TOW. Think I can sell it to an Awareness Association there. Think they may need a new Club House location…soon!

    Didn’t know?

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight!

    Yeah, right. Pakistan leaked it to us after they got tired of Osama. (His house was the only one in that Abbottabad neighborhood to not have satellite TV/internet– a courier had to bring “adult entertainment” on thumb drive.)
