White House rejects claims by US journalist of Pakistan’s role in raid that killed OBL


WASHINGTON (AFP) – The White House on Monday flatly rejected claims that Pakistan was told in advance about a 2011 special operations raid that killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Veteran US journalist Seymour Hersh claimed in a British publication that Pakistan s security services not only knew about the raid, but had been holding bin Laden prisoner since 2006.

That account was rejected by the White House.

“This was a US operation through and through,” said Edward Price, a White House National Security Council spokesman.
