Ambassador Nancy Powell undercuts hunt for Bin Laden

How a Lone Diplomat Compromised the Hunt for Bin Laden. It should not have taken 2 years for this to be resolved.
Ambassador Nancy Powell, America’s representative in Pakistan, refused to allow the distribution in Pakistan of wanted posters, matchbooks, and other items advertising America’s $25 million reward for information leading to the capture of Mr. bin Laden and other Al Qaeda leaders.
She was removed as ambassador in November, 2004. And the reward for Ossama was recently upped to $50 million. [hat tip Sundries Shack]
