It became known today that Osama bin Laden was no longer either in Afghanistan or in any other country of the South-Asian region. The latest video tape with Bin Laden's interview turned out to be in the possession of the Qatar Al-Jazeera television deliberately, in order to muddle the Pentagon. Bin Laden left Afghanistan in the beginning of December. The prime suspect is now probably in one of the countries of the East or South-East Asia, where he got by boat. The bombing has not caused any damage to the al-Qaeda leaders – they are all one like before.

This was the conclusion of the secret report of the American special services, which was given to the CIA director, ABC television company informed. Well, this was expected. Some other country will most likely share the fate of the bombed Afghanistan soon – a country, which will be charged of rendering a shelter to Bin Laden. By the way , the UN experts said that the economy of Afghanistan was in the critical condition, and $100 million would be necessary to raise it at least somehow.

So far the American Secretary of State, Colin Powell, says he can not be sure that Bin Laden is in a certain region. However, the American special services seriously consider Somalia and Philippines as the next possible targets.
