    Obama aide cites al-Qaida leader in Afghanistan

    By ROBERT BURNS
    AP National Security Writer Dec 6, 2:25 PM EST


    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Osama bin Laden may be slipping back and forth from Pakistan to Afghanistan. Or the U.S. might not have a clue, more than eight years after the al-Qaida leader masterminded the terrorist attacks on America.

    Given a chance Sunday to clear away some of the mystery surrounding the whereabouts of the world's most wanted terrorist, Obama administration officials seemed to add to it with what appeared to be conflicting assessments.

    President Barack Obama's national security adviser, James Jones, said that bin Laden, believed hiding mainly in a rugged area of western Pakistan, may be periodically slipping back into Afghanistan. But Obama's Pentagon chief, Robert Gates, said the U.S. has lacked good intelligence on bin Laden for a long time - "I think it has been years" - and did not confirm that he'd slipped into Afghanistan.

    The failed hunt for bin Laden has been one of the signature frustrations of the global war on terrorism that former President George W. Bush launched after the Sept. 11 attacks. The main explanation given by both the Bush and Obama administrations for not getting bin Laden is that they simply don't know where he is.

    "If we did, we'd go get him," Gates said.

    Didn't Barry Criticize (43) for not Getting bin Laden, and also Promise to get him himself?...
