US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that some of the officials in Pakistan know more about the al-Qaeda and Taliban than they actually claimed to have.
‘Some Pakistani officials were more informed about al-Qaeda and Taliban than they let on’, secretary of state Hillary Clinton has said. ‘I'm not saying that they're at the highest levels but I believe that somewhere in this government are people who know where Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda is, where Mullah Omar and the leadership of the Afghan Taliban is and we expect more cooperation to help us bring to justice, capture or kill, those who attacked us on 9/11’, Clinton told a TV channel during an interview.
On whether US were not getting full cooperation from Pakistan, Hillary said that there has been sea change in cooperation by the Pakistan authorities, adding ‘we want more’. ‘I have to stand up for the efforts the Pakistani government is taking. They have done a very significant move toward going after the terrorists within their own country’, she said when she was asked why the Obama administration putting enough pressure on Islamabad to hand over Osama and his deputy Ayman al Zawahiri.
