German spies say THEY were the ones who told the CIA where Osama Bin Laden was hiding

German spies have claimed they were the ones who told the CIA where Osama Bin Laden was hiding in Pakistan so US special forces could kill the al-Qaeda leader, according to reports.

The BND, Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, tipped off U.S. officials about where the architect of the September 11 attacks was taking refuge, newspaper Bild am Sonntag claimed.

The tip-off from a BND source within Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency was said to be of ‘fundamental importance’ in the hunt for the terrorist, the German paper said.

Bin Laden was found hiding in a walled compound in Abbottabad less than a mile from Pakistan’s elite military academy and he was shot by Navy SEALs in 2011.

    Isn’t this the second story in a couple of weeks citing a different source for the intel that fingered UBL’s location?
    I find that odd this long after we killed him.

    Both later sources point to an ISI insider too. Our origional account absolutely does not.
    So, was there an insider at the ISI that fingered bin Laden and everything we released previously was an attempt to protect that source, or is that source at the ISI someone else wants burned?

    • I think the US knew well before they let on they they did.

    Does anyone really believe that Bin Laden was in “hiding”? Why would he choose to “hide” in a military town that has been described as Pakistan’s version of Westpoint?

    Obviously he was being held captive by the Pakistan military. When the U.S. found out they negotiated with the Paki’s to kill Obama in exchange for providing continued $$$BILLIONS in funding (no doubt private bribes were offered to top military brass as well to sweeten the deal).

    There is no way that Marine Copters could have flown into the heart of this military town unopposed – they HAD to have the cooperation of the Pakistani government especially considering that the first Helo crashed inside the compound and caught fire and it took 20 minutes for the backup to arrive.

    Why didn’t Obama just pay the Paki’s to turn Bin Laden over ? The explanation is simple. Obama scored major political points for his “courageous” decision to authorize this “risky” mission. Obama’s “success” in bringing Bin Laden to “justice” was a major factor in his reelection.
