Afghanistan Intensifies Anti-Pakistan Rhetoric in Aftermath of Bin Laden Raid


KABUL, Afghanistan — The Afghanistan government escalated its criticism of Pakistan on Wednesday, publicly questioning for the first time how the Pakistanis could assure the security of their own nuclear weapons if they did not even know that Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted terrorist, had been hiding in a compound in a Pakistani military town less than an hour from their own capital.

“If the Pakistani intelligence agency does not know about a home located 10 meters or 100 meters away from its national military academy, where for the last six years the biggest terrorist is living, how can this country take care of its strategic weapons?” General Azimi said.

He added that if Pakistan’s intelligence did in fact know the whereabouts of Bin Laden, then “they are playing a double game.”
