Blair Cites Proof of Bin Laden's Links to Terror Attacks
British Prime Minister Tony Blair said Sunday that he had seen "powerful and incontrovertible evidence" linking alleged terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden to attacks in the United States.
Much of it came from intelligence services and other sensitive sources, he told BBC television, and leaders were still figuring out how to present it to the public.
Bin Laden has been named by Washington and London as the chief suspect over the bloody September 11 attacks, when hijackers flew airplanes into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon.
The attacks are thought to have killed more than 6,000 people.
"I have seen absolutely powerful and incontrovertible evidence of his links to the events of September 11," Blair said of bin Laden.
He also had a warning for the Taliban regime ruling Afghanistan, where bin Laden is based.
"They either help us or they become the enemy themselves," he went on. "If they are not prepared to give up bin Laden then they become an obstacle” -- LONDON (AFP)
