Pakistan's intelligence agencies were sleeping during Bin Laden raid: Musharraf
New Delhi, Nov. 18 (ANI): Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf, while commenting on Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's undiscovered presence in the garrison town of Abbottabad in the country, said it was the negligence of the army and intelligence agencies and not their complicity.
"Our intelligence agencies were sleeping," The Express Tribune quoted Musharraf, as saying during the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi.
Musharraf bluntly criticised the intelligence agencies but also said that the CIA, with all its resources and technology, was also unable to uncover plans of 11 young men who had hijacked their planes from four places and crashed them into the World Trade Centre.
Musharraf further said that India and Pakistan would have to think out of the box to resolve their differences, adding that as the bigger nation, the onus was on India to show more generosity.
"We need to resolve the long-standing disputes between India and Pakistan because these are the causes of hatred, causes of conflict and the wars. It is high time we open our eyes to reality," said Musharraf, Musharraf, who ruled Pakistan as a military dictator and later as a civilian president between 1999 and 2008.
"We need to bury the hatchet. But compromise should come from the bigger party. India should have a big heart because it is the bigger country," he added. (ANI)
