USA har funnet bevis for at Osama bin Laden hadde kontakt med en militant gruppe som man vet er blitt styrt av ISI i minst 20 år.

Det er funnet av en mobiltelefon på bin Ladens kurerer, som viser forbindelsen.

Det kan være at gruppen har tatt seg av bin Laden på vegne av ISI:

The cellphone of Osama bin Laden’s trusted courier, which was recovered in the raid that killed both men in Pakistan last month, contained contacts to a militant group that is a longtime asset of Pakistan’s intelligence agency, senior American officials who have been briefed on the findings say.

The discovery indicates that Bin Laden used the group, Harakat-ul-Mujahedeen, as part of his support network inside the country, the officials and others said. But it also raised tantalizing questions about whether the group and others like it helped shelter and support Bin Laden on behalf of Pakistan’s spy agency, given that it had mentored Harakat and allowed it to operate in Pakistan for at least 20 years, the officials and analysts said.
