Yesterday an ABC blog was quoted as saying that Pakistan would offer Osama Amnesty. This is a very good example why blogs should not be used as a news source. It now turns out the General that was quoted states the individual was wrong.



General Denies allegations

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan's top army spokesman on Wednesday vehemently denied saying in a news report that Usama bin Laden would not be taken into custody if he agreed to live peacefully in Pakistan.

"This is absolutely fabricated, absurd. I never said this," Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan told The Associated Press, referring to an ABC News broadcast aired hours earlier.

The ABC report cited Sultan as saying in a telephone interview that Al Qaeda chief bin Laden "would not be taken into custody" if found, "as long as one is being like a peaceful citizen."

Sultan's recorded comments were included in the report, but it was not immediately clear whether he understood that bin Laden was the specific subject of discussion at that point in the interview.

A word to the wise never trust a blog they are clearly useless.

One can only assume it must have been a slow news day and this so called Investigative reporter does not know how to Investigate

Well, seeing how Pakistan was supporting and funding Al-Qaeda as a proxy for the CIA, is it any surprise that they would give amnesty to Al-Qaeda as long as they behave?

Its all really a matter of semantics. Im sure they know where Bin laden is hiding but are looking the other way.
