WASHINGTON – The CIA has come closer to capturing or killing Osama bin Laden's top deputy than was previously known during the last nine years, The Associated Press has learned.

Tragically, the agency thought it had its best chance last year at a secret base in Afghanistan, but instead fell victim to a double agent's devastating suicide bombing.

I think now of all time they want OBL or Al-Zawahiri, so they can have a less embarrassing defeat against the world's poorest and ill-equipped nation.

If they kill or capture either of the two, they can say, ohh well, we came here and completed all our missions, now we are gonna leave lol..

This is the biggest and most embarrassing defeat for US ever. They were so desperate that they tried to start fake negotiations with an M16 agent, who was an imposter. That was to divide the resistance.

The individual who claimed to be a powerful Taliban commander was an imposter, and it was orchestrated to create conflict between the resistance movement, dividing this commander from the rest of the group. That way internal fighting, just like in Iraq, would do the rest of the work.

Fail.

Afghans are not stupid, they might be illiterate, but they are wise.
