1,681. 4/6/2000

FBI Director Louis Freeh described a meeting on April 6, 2000, with Pakistani leader Pervez Musharraf, in which he tried to convince the leader to help capture Osama bin Laden. “In the end, Musharraf refused to help. Taliban leader Mullah [Mohammad] Omar, he said, had given his personal assurances that Osama bin Laden was innocent of the East African bombings and had abandoned terrorism. It was nonsense, but without Pakistan’s assistance, Osama bin Laden was snug as a bug in a rug.”
