Osama Bin Laden Located in Himalayan Mountains?
Osama Bin Laden is hiding in the “rooftop of the world.”
The Daily Times reported:
Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden is hiding in the Karakoram segment of the Himalayan range, Arabic television network Al-Arabiya quoted its sources as saying on Monday. According to the Dubai-based network, in the past few days United States (US) security and military officials had a top-level summit at a military base in Qatar’s capital Doha to plan an operation to hunt for Osama. US commander in Iraq General David Petraeus and US ambassador to Islamabad Anne Patterson were reported to have attended the summit.
Last week, Petraeus testified before a US Congressional committee about security in Iraq and warned that members of Al Qaeda based in Pakistan’s Tribal Areas were planning a new attack on the US. According to the channel, reports say the Central Investigation Agency (CIA) has located Osama in the “rooftop of the world”, the area of Pakistan that borders Afghanistan to the west, in particular the chain of mountains of Afghan province of Nurestan and China to the north.
Wherever he is, he’s been plenty quiet the last few years.
UPDATE: Top Pakistani Taliban official Baitullah Mehsud announced that Osama Bin Laden is dead.
UPDATE 2: Then there is this other report from today claiming that Osama is hiding in northern Pakistan, bordering Afghanistan.
