No Bin Laden information in years, says Gates

It was thought Bin Laden was hiding along the Pakistan-Afghan border
The US has had no reliable information on the whereabouts of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden in years, US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has admitted.

Mr Gates told ABC News in remarks broadcast on Sunday: "Well, we don't know for a fact where Osama Bin Laden is. If we did, we'd go get him."

A Taliban detainee in Pakistan told the BBC last week that he had information Bin Laden was in Afghanistan this year.

However, Mr Gates said he could not confirm that information.

When asked by ABC's This Week programme when the US last had any good intelligence on the whereabouts of the al-Qaeda leader, Mr Gates said: "I think it's been years."

1. It's kinda hard to make new news if you're dead.
I seems the public knows more about bin Laden than our government does.
Maybe if Cheney had not outed Valerie, they'd know more about what is going on.
