Bin Laden's last confirmed presence was at the siege of Tora Bora, in eastern Afghanistan, in December of 2001 when the al-Qaeda chief and dozens of his men bribed Afghan mercenaries hired by U.S. Special Forces to let them escape into the Pakistani mountains directly across the border. A Pakistani intelligence officer who was the main liaison with the Taliban before 9/11 claims that he informed then President Pervez Musharraf that most likely bin Laden, said to be gravely ill, died several weeks after Tora Bora and was buried in a hastily dug, unmarked grave in the Ghazni desert of eastern Afghanistan. "He was too sick to walk on his own two legs or even ride a horse. His men had to tie him to a donkey," says Brigadier Amir Sultan Tarar, better known to his Taliban confederates by his nom de guerre, "Col. Imam".
