“Porter Goss, the director of the CIA, had made a tantalizing comment in June [27] 2005 that rocked Pakistan. Asked about the whereabouts of bin Laden, he replied, ‘I have an excellent idea where he is…in the chain that you need to successfully wrap up the war on terror, we have some weak links.’ Pakistanis took his comment to mean that bin Laden was in Pakistan, while the ‘weak link’ was Islamabad.”
