The Pentagon knows exactly where Osama bin Laden is hiding in Pakistan, it just can't get to him, John Lehman, a member of the 9-11 commission, said Thursday.
Lehman's remarks echoed those made Tuesday by Secretary of State Colin Powell, who asserted that the al-Qaida leader was alive and operating in the western part of Pakistan.
Bin Laden is living in South Waziristan in the Baluchistan Mountains of the Baluchistan region, Lehman told The San Bernardino Sun after delivering a keynote speech on terrorism at Pitzer College in Claremont.
In the exclusive interview, Lehman noted, "There is an American presence in the area, but we can't just send in troops. If we did, we could have another Vietnam, and the United States cannot afford that right now."
Instead, they created another Vietnam in Iraq. Saddam Hussein was worth an endless war and the death of thousands.
But getting the guy who carried out the largest attack on the United States in history is too risky.
Where the HELL do these clowns get their priorities?
"We'll get (bin Laden) eventually, just not now," he said.
And they don't think this guy is planning any attacks while they blithely figure they'll get him "eventually"?
