We have become so secretive in the spy game that we have discovered that we know nothing. Osama is in the general area of Pakistan, or as some have suggested, he might be hiding on a ranch in Texas for all that we know. Pathetic.
Surely, the intelligence business is hard, but have been so focused on technoliogy that we have lost human intelligence capability. When you put millions of dollars of bounty money out there for information about Osama, don't you think someone would know something and give someone a call. Perhaps that is the problem. No phone. No one answers but a help desk in India.
Speaking in an interview to be aired on Sunday on ABC's "This Week" program, Gates also said he could not confirm reports this week that a detainee might have seen bin Laden in Afghanistan earlier this year.
"We don't know for a fact where Osama bin Laden is. If we did, we'd go and get him," Gates said in excerpts released by ABC."
