Sunday Express: Bin Laden ‘Cornered’
The _Sunday Express_ in London is reporting that U.S. and British Special
Osama bin Laden, the Napoleon of TerrorForces have cornered Osama bin Laden in the mountains of northwestern Pakistan and are just waiting for the word to go get him. We’ll see how this plays out. The _Express_ isn’t always the most reliable of newspapers.
_[I updated the link to a better version of the story — thanks, Steve! — and corrected a misspelled word in title. “Cornerd”? Jeeze. — Ed.]_
UPDATE 8:04 PM EST Pakistan is “denying any knowledge that bin Laden is trapped”:http://www.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,4057,8764279%255E401,00.html.
Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said bin Laden had not been “boxed in”.
“I do not have any such information,” he said.
Curiouser and curiouser. There have been mutterings of bin Laden’s imminent capture for weeks, and the “spring offensive”:http://www.back-to-iraq.com/archives/000668.php#000668 against the tribal areas is likely gearing up. I thought it was weird that the U.S. was so open about its plans to step up against al Qaeda, but on reflection, feel the Pentagon was trying to flush bin Laden out. Has it done so or is this just more disinformation designed to spread confusion among bin Laden’s followers?
