Congressional terrorism expert agrees al-Qaida leader in Pakistan
Osama Bin Laden is indeed alive and operating within the borders of one of America's allies in the war on terror – Pakistan – says author and congressional terrorism expert Yossef Bodansky in confirming earlier intelligence reports obtained by WorldNetDaily.
In a recorded interview with WorldNetDaily's Editor and Chief Executive Officer Joseph Farah, Bodansky says he is certain bin Laden is alive and evading capture in Pakistan.
According to WorldNetDaily's intelligence sources, bin Laden's top lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahri, is also in Pakistan. Both al-Qaida leaders bought their way out of Afghanistan during the U.S. siege of Tora Bora last year. Bin Laden reportedly paid $15 million to facilitate his escape.
At least one senior al-Qaida leader who fled to Pakistan with bin Laden has since returned to Afghanistan. Amin al-Haq, described as a very close associate of bin Laden, is reportedly back in Afghanistan now.
Al-Qaida forces reportedly are situated in small bases in Pakistan near the Afghan border so as not to attract too much attention from the military. However, the terrorists have run harassing operations against U.S. troops in Afghanistan. U.S. forces are not permitted to follow al-Qaida forces back into Pakistan when they flee.
