ISI led CIA to bin Laden, says Imran

Pakistan’s spy agency, the Inter Services Intelligence agency, provided the U.S. with a lead that helped them find and kill al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday.

This is a significant revelation as Islamabad had so far denied having any knowledge of the dreaded al-Qaeda chief in the country until he was shot dead by U.S. Navy Seals in 2011.

Mr. Khan made his claim in an interview with Fox News. “ It was ISI that gave the information which led to the location of Osama bin Laden. If you ask CIA it was ISI which gave the initial location through the phone connection.”
