U.S. declines to comment on Osama Abbottabad Commission report

U.S. declines to comment on Osama Abbottabad Commission reportWashington, Oct. 23 : The U. S. has declined to comment on media reports regarding the Abbottabad Commission report, which investigated the U. S. raid in Pakistan''s garrison town of Abbottabad, that killed Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden in May 2011.

U. S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said they have just seen reports in the Pakistani press about the Abbottabad Commission report, which stated that no one else in Abbottabad knew that the world''s most wanted man had taken up residence there, reports The News.

"We obviously share with the Government of Pakistan a profound interest in finding out what kinds of support networks Bin Laden might have had. So we believe such a report, when it does finally get finalized and published, that it''s an -important for the American people and the Pakistani people to know," Toner said.

The five-member judicial commission submitted its report to the government last week. The report also concluded that stealth technology used by the U. S. helicopters enabled them to enter Pakistani airspace without being detected. (ANI)
