Pakistan: a proud nation in utter denial
Was it Pakistan forces who raided the compound in Abbotabad?
Was it Pakistan forces who took away the captives?
On 4 May 2011, The UK Daily Telegraph's Peter Oborne has a report on what happened at Abbottabad. (The mysterious Khan family.)
Peter Oborne reports:
Mohammed Qasim is a farmer’s boy who lives right next to the compound in Abbottabad.
A special forces helicopter landed in the field just behind his house.
Masked men emerged.
Mohammed Qasim said they spoke fluent Pashtu, a language of Pakistan.
He heard them 'smash their way into' the compound.
Twenty minutes later, he heard the helicopters depart with their captives.
Mohammed Qasim's father was seized by soldiers during the raid.
(The mysterious Khan family.)
According to Mohammed Qasim, two families had been living in the compound.
They were headed by Arshad Khan, 'in his forties', and his young brother Tariq.
They spoke perfect Pashtu (a language of Pakistan)
Mohammed Qasim said the Khans had eight or nine children, including Abdur Rahman and Khalid, both six or seven years old; two or three women lived in the house.
These children also spoke Pashtu.
Every morning the mothers and their children would leave the house a Suzuki van.
Mohammed Qasim insisted that he never saw Osama bin Laden.
He said: "I don't believe he was there."
Peter Osborne could see "practically no signs of a fight" when he arrived at the Khan’s family house.
"No bullet marks punctured the walls."

"U.S. officials have said that Pakistani officials were not told about the early morning helicopter raid until the strike team had killed Bin Laden and had returned to Afghanistan from where they took off, citing security reasons.
"Many Pakistanis were surprised at how this was possible, especially when initial reports stated that the choppers took off from a Pakistani air base." (Bunny Laden.)
"When the White House released a transcript of Brennan's briefing, it substituted the name of a different son, Hamza...
"Brennan said bin Laden's wife died while shielding the terrorist leader from U.S. gunfire.
"Carney said Tuesday that the wife hadn't died and was merely shot in the leg, although another woman did die. But it wasn't clear that either of them was trying to shield bin Laden.
"Brennan and other officials suggested that bin Laden was holding a gun and even firing at U.S. forces. Carney said Tuesday that bin Laden was unarmed." (White House Struggles to Get Story Right )
