(In April, Bashir Noorzai was sentenced to life in a U.S. prison on drug–trafficking charges, after having been lured to New York City by federal agents.)
And we lost what might've been our best shot at capturing bin Laden. A friend of mine was the guy who made contact with Noorzai & convinced him to cooperate in an operation to locate him, then the DEA took advantage of his coming to the US as part of it & had Noorzai indicted on drug charges. It was a dirty partnership but that's the kind of deal we'll have to make to catch him. Very shortsighted, in my opinion.
