Osama Bin Laden Could Be in China?

View Larger Map

The Wakhan Corridor is a narrow strip of land connecting Afghanistan directly to China. The mountains surrounding Wakhan are some of the highest and most rugged in the world making the terrain well-suited for guerrilla fighting and any army entering the corridor would be vulnerable to ambushes from the mountains.

Many however are saying that the Wakhan Corridor is not an option for Osama Bin Ladden as the area directly south of the corridor is heavily populated with Tajiks who are enemies of the Taliban. But what if Bin Ladden was able to break through the Tajik Blockade and reach Wakhan? What if his secret base is in China? Could the U.S. be searching too far south? We all know how sensitive the Chinese are about people infringing on their territory. Also since China is the number one financier of our War On Terrorism, wouldn’t it be safe to assume that China would have little interest in turning him over to the U.S. or getting rid of the guy they are getting rich on?
