Certain elements inside Pakistan military had links to al-Qaeda


  • Barack Obama has said that he had ruled out involving Pakistan in the raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout because it was an “open secret” that certain elements inside Pakistan’s military, and especially its intelligence services, maintained links to the Taliban and perhaps even al-Qaeda, sometimes using them as strategic assets against Afghanistan and India.
  • Obama said that the top secret operation was opposed by the then Defence Secretary and his former Vice President Joe Biden.
