Bin Laden’s hideaway narrowed down to three buildings

UCLA Geography professors identify Bin Laden’s most likely hiding spots


 

Geography professors at UCLA have placed Osama Bin Laden’s hideaway in one of three buildings in the northwest Pakistan town of Parachinar, in the Kurram region near the border with Afghanistan. The study used satellite imagery, animal distribution theories and Bin Laden’s life history characteristics to predict his hideaway. According to ABC News, the scientists hope that intelligence agencies including FBI, CIA and Pakistani Intelligence services will investigate their predictions.  Bin Laden’s last appearance was in January in an Internet audio message confronting President Obama. A CIA official who had not seen the report said only, “take it with a huge grain of salt, huge.”
