Sky News : CIA Claims To Know Bin Laden's Hideaway

Sky News : CIA Claims To Know Bin Laden's Hideaway: "CIA 'TRACE' BIN LADEN
The head of the CIA says he has an "excellent" idea where Osama bin Laden is but political sensitivities make it hard to catch him.

Porter Goss said the US had to respect the sovereignty of nations which might be sucked into the hunt for the terrorist leader.

The head of the US intelligence had been asked about progress was being made in the search for bin Laden.

He told Time magazine: "When you go to the question of dealing with sanctuaries in sovereign states, you're dealing with a problem of our sense of international obligation, fair play.

"We have to find a way to work in a conventional world in unconventional ways."

Asked if that meant he knew where bin Laden was, Mr Goss replied: "I have an excellent idea where he is."

But he did not say where that was or what countries he was referring to when speaking of "sanctuaries".

American officials have long said they believe bin Laden to be hiding out in mountains along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

They invaded Afghanistan following the terrorist attacks of September 2001 claiming the Taliban, which ruled the country, were giving him shelter.
