No firm evidence of Pakistani complicity: Pentagon
Washington: A senior Pentagon official says the US so far has no "definitive evidence" that Pakistan knew Osama bin Laden had been living in the compound where Navy SEALs killed him.
Michele Flournoy, the top policy aide to Defence Secretary Robert Gates, said the Pakistanis must now demonstrate visibly and convincingly their commitment to defeating al Qaeda. She met with a Pakistani delegation at the Pentagon on Monday and Tuesday.
She said the Pakistani government should, for example, help the US exploit the materials the SEALs collected inside bin Laden`s lair during their raid on Monday.
Flournoy was the first Pentagon official to comment on-the-record about Monday`s raid. She offered no new details about it, but said it dealt "a very severe blow" to al Qaeda.
