Washington, Apr 28 (PTI) Stung by lingering suspicions that it was complicit in sheltering Osama bin Laden, Pakistan's spy agency has claimed credit for helping US intelligence agencies locate the high-walled hideout of the terror mastermind. "The lead and the information actually came from US," a senior official of the Inter-Services Intelligence told Washington Post, in what the paper said was a push for recognition ahead of the anniversary of the stealth raid that killed bin Laden. The official claimed that it was ISI which had provided CIA with a cellphone number that eventually led to an al-Qaeda courier Abu Ahmad al-Kuwaiti, the paper said. "Any hit on al-Qaeda anywhere in the world as happened with our help," the official said. "They knew who the number belonged to," the official said, adding that he had worked closely with the CIA and turned over thousands of suspect numbers. "But after that, their cooperation with us ended." "It is the story of an extreme trust deficit and betrayal," the official lamented. But the Post said that US officials disputed the ISI version. "The fact is, our knowledge of the number didn't come from them telling us about it," the paper quoted US officials as saying. The paper said many Pakistani politicians have described the May 2 raid as an assault on Pakistan's sovereignty and an example of US arrogance. A Pakistani doctor who helped the CIA in the hunt for bin Laden remains in custody on charges of treason, and his associates are barred from working. PTI AKD
