Hillhouse writes on her blog that the currently accepted account of the discovery of bin Laden's whereabouts—a years-long American effort to find his courier finally yielded fruit—is a cover story.
officer in the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency approached the U.S. with information about bin Laden's whereabouts in exchange for the $25 million bounty and U.S. citizenship for his family.
Hillhouse writes, U.S. officials
"approached the chiefs of the Pakistani military and the ISI. The US was going to come in with or without them.
The CIA offered them a deal they couldn't refuse: they would double what the Saudis were paying them to keep bin Laden if they cooperated with the US. Or they could refuse the deal and live with the consequences: the Saudis would stop paying and there would be the international embarrassment...
"The ISI and Pakistani military were cooperating with the US on the raid.
"The cooperation was why there were no troops in Abbottabad. They were all pulled out.
>> hope this isnt counter intel planted story. why wasnt bin Ladin brougt to justice, but shot dead?
