Osama bin Laden is in Pakistan: Joe BidenApril 8th, 2009 - 3:51 pm ICT by IANS
Washington, April 8 (IANS) Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), US vice president Joe Biden said, adding that the “most radicalised part of Taliban” is there.
“In the FATA, the western part of Pakistan in the mountains on the Afghan border… That is a war on terror. That’s where Al Qaeda lives. That’s where Bin Laden is. That’s where the most radicalised part of Taliban is,” Biden said in an interview to CNN.
“Terror is a legitimate threat. It is a threat that comes from Al Qaeda and those organisations that have morphed off of Al Qaeda,” he said.
To a query, Biden said that he condemned a new Afghan law that would allow men to rape their wives, but that those issues were not the focus of the US presence in that nation. “I am not prepared to send American troops to die for that,” he said.
