U.S. troops were just 800 yards from Osama Bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound during a training rotation in Pakistan in 2008.
The embarrassing proof that some of America’s best military men were so close to the world’s most wanted terrorist was found buried in diplomatic cables released by whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks.
Mention of Abbottabad is sparse in the cables – but when it is, the significance is chilling, particularly as other information indicates the U.S. may have been on the path that would lead them to Bin Laden as early as 2008.
In 2008, the WikiLeaks documents reveal, a meeting was held in Washington between then-U.S. deputy secretary of state, John Negroponte, and Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
The pair were discussing co-operation on security between their two countries, according to the account of the meeting in the WikiLeaks files. Both agreed there were not enough resources to ease their security fears.
At that point, Pakistan’s national security advisor Mahmud Ali Durrani, referred gratefully to the plan to bring U.S. troops to Abottabad – home to Pakistan’s military academy, the country’s equivalent of America’s West Point or Britain’s Sandhurst.
The troops were to visit to help train Pakistan forces – an initiative similar to the one carried out by Nato in Afghanistan, where troops were training Afghan forces to handle the country’s security in preparation for the day Western forces would leave the country.
‘Durrani pledged Pakistan’s support for the U.S. Training-of-Trainers for the Frontier Corps starting in Abottabad in October,’ the report read, according to the Guardian newspaper, which has seen the WikiLeaks cables.
The academy is just 800 yards – less than half a mile – from where the compound where Osama Bin Laden lived for six years. By that time American agents were already on the trail on Bin Laden, scouring the country for whispers of the terror chief through his chief courier.

Why did it take 10 years to capture Osama Bin Laden?
Because he was living a life of luxury in a “Safe House”, just 800 meters from the Pakistani Military Academy.
Its amazing that anyone can even suggest, that the Pakistani Military Intelligence service (ISI) did not know who was living in the house next to one of Pakistans best guarded military area.
Why did the ISI blow the cover of Osama?
If Osama was on his dying beds of kidney failure, He would be more worth dead than alive. Some high Pakistani officials took the money Washington offered. 50 million US dollar or so. For this price the ISI gave the US navy seal help to fake an encounter.
Up as the winner, comes Obama. Perfect timing for an Islamic friendly US President who is about to run for re-election.
And is Osama Bin Laden really dead?
Or is everything just staged?
Can someone please publish a picture of the dead body?
