US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen has supported US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s statement about the presence of Osama Bin Laden and other top Al-Qaida leadership in Pakistan.
Addressing media at the US embassy in Islamabad, he said: “I believe Osama is here in Pakistan.”
“They are hiding in a very secure place and it is very difficult to trace them,” The Daily Times quoted Admiral Mullen, as saying.
He claimed that the tribal belt on Pakistan’s western border had become the “global headquarters” for Al Qaeda.
