Silence on the part of the President regarding Osama does not equate to inaction.

US forces hunting Osama in NAs, says Indian intelligence

NEW DELHI: Indian intelligence agencies have found the presence of American forces in Pakistan’s Northern Areas, trailing Osama Bin Laden, the Al Qaeda and Taliban remnants. Much to the discomfiture of China, the US has set up a “secret shop” in the region as part of its covert special operations against militant outfits, claim intelligence agencies here.

Intelligence sources here said that besides the US Special Force units, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has also set up “listening posts” in Northern Areas to monitor communication.

Quoting sources in India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), The Tehelka weekly paper reported that the Pentagon’s Defence Intelligence Agency’s satellite intercepts had given rise to “credible evidence” that some parts of Northern Areas had been infiltrated by Al Qaeda militants.

Last October, Christina Rocca, the US assistant secretary of state for South Asia, and Nancy Powell, the US Ambassador to Pakistan, had visited the Northern Areas. Since then many Americans are visiting Gilgit and Baltistan to oversee development projects funded by USAID. The US Army had also conducted military exercises in Deosai, 30 kilometres from Skardu. Earlier, the Indian and US Special Forces had conducted high-altitude wafare exercise in Ladkah, just on this side of Skardu.

Indian intelligence agencies also believe that US intelligence operatives might have “developed” Shia border traders in Balochistan as “intelligence assets”. In their most covert operations in Northern Areas, the US Special Forces have also focused on local Shia groups to gather intelligence. They attribute Shia leader Aga Ziauddin Rizvi’s killing to his siding with the US forces.

B Raman, the former RAW additional secretary, also maintained that the Americans had set up a chain of monitoring stations in Gilgit and Baltistan to keep track of telephones and wireless communications. These centres, he claimed, are ostensibly run by the Inter-Services Intelligence and a number of US intelligence officers are attached to them—some of them US nationals of Afghan origin.

He claimed that US’s National Security Agency (NSA) had already its presence in the Northern Areas. For past many years, the NSA has been collecting signals from the space establishments of Kazakhstan and the nuclear establishments of China’s Xinjiang province. The NSA uses gadgets and technologies for penetrating foreign devices and telecommunication and computer networks. “Mostly, the NSA depends on the CIA, organisations, the Voice of America and academic institutions such as Carnegie Mellon for such assistance,” he said. iftikhar gilani

US to double bounty on Osama's head

January 24, 2005 12:07 IST



With Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's trail having gone cold, the Bush administration is expected to double the sum on his head to $50 million by the end of February and chalk out a publicity blitz to help trace him.

As part of the publicity blitz, the US state department is reminding Afghans and Pakistanis of the existing $25 million bounty, according to Time magazine.

Bin Laden is still thought to be hiding somewhere along the 2,500-km mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border, but intelligence officials in Kabul and Islamabad believe there has been no trace of him for the past 20 months.

State department advertisements began appearing this month in Jang, a widely circulated Pakistani newspaper, offering rewards for bin Laden, his lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahiri, Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar and 11 others.

The advertisements have elicited an average of 12 responses a day and will be followed by an advertising barrage on regional radio and TV stations in the borderlands and cities where the Al-Qaeda chief may be hiding, Time quoted the state department as saying.

US reward offers were posted soon after terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, DC, but Time said officials concede that little effort was made to circulate the offers widely in the Afghan and Pakistani countryside.

Even if a local knew of bin Laden's whereabouts, the informer would face daunting obstacles in contacting US authorities, the report said.

Congressman Mark Kirk, the Republican who wrote the bill boosting the reward and who just travelled to Pakistan, said it is possible bin Laden is not in some snowy mountain cave but has melted away into one of the teeming Pakistani cities.

"What we're looking for is some young Pashtun living in a town who knows the value of $25 million and can figure out how to reach us safely," said Kirk.
