No proof Pakistan knew of bin Laden, but must investigate: US


A top White House official said Sunday there’s currently no evidence that Pakistan knew Osama bin Laden was hiding there, but added the country must investigate the Al-Qaeda leader’s “support network.”
“There was some support network in Abbottabad, Pakistan with the support of bin Laden,” National Security Advisor Tom Donilon told NBC’s “Meet The Press” show broadcast Sunday.
“We haven’t seen evidence that the government knew about that. But they need to investigate that.”
Bin Laden was killed by US forces in a clandestine raid one week ago at his compound in Abbottabad.
“I can tell you directly that — I’ve not seen evidence that would tell us that the political, the military, or the intelligence leadership had foreknowledge of bin Laden,” Donilon said.
