Former Top CIA Official on Bin Laden Raid Account: 'It's All Wrong'

Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell dismissed a recent report from veteran journalist Seymour Hersh that claims that Pakistani officials were harboring Osama bin Laden before his death at the hands of U.S. Navy SEALs.
“It’s all wrong,” Morell told CBS on Monday morning. “I started reading the article last night. I got a third of the way through and I stopped because every sentence I was reading was wrong. The source that Hersh talked to has no idea what he’s talking about.”
Hersh’s account of the bin Laden raid, published Sunday in the London Review of Books, alleges that Pakistan’s top intelligence service, known as the ISI, kept the late Al Qaeda leader imprisoned in the Abbottabad compound where he was eventually found and that the CIA discovered his whereabouts from a former Pakistani official who betrayed the ISI for personal financial gain — not by tracing the moves of his personal courier, as originally reported.
