Indications that the Military dominated "Deep State" of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is on a mission to cover up records of Osama Bin Laden’s sojourn there.
Head of the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Dianne Feinstein, lets slip that records of Osama Bin Laden’s Abbotabad compound may have vanished:
Asked by The Cable if she had seen any evidence that senior Pakistani government officials had been involved in the hiding of bin Laden, Feinstein paused, thought for a moment, and then gave a very careful response.
"I don't understand how somebody could buy the land for $48,000, get the building permits, get a contractor, build for a period of time what is essentially the largest home compound in the area, where somebody lives for five years, and nobody asks who's there or finds out who's there," she said.
Then she offered this fascinating tidbit:
"I understand it's very difficult to go back and find the records, that they suddenly disappeared. That's not a positive sign either," she said.
Pressed by The Cable on how she knew that the bin Laden files had been lost, she said, "That's what the rumor is... I didn't hear this from [the] intel [community]."
