Cheney knows where bin Laden is hiding, but not exact 'address'
Updated: 2005-06-25 17:16

US Vice President Dick Cheney said that he knows where Al-Qaeda terror chief Osama bin Laden is hiding out, but not his precise location.

"We've got a pretty good idea of the general area that he's in, but I -- you know, I don't have the street address," Cheney told CNN in an interview, confirming comments by Central Intelligence Agency chief Porter Goss.

In an interview with Time Magazine published Sunday, Goss said he had an "excellent idea of where" bin Laden is.

But he added: "In the chain that you need to successfully wrap up the war on terror, we have some weak links. And I find that until we strengthen all the links, we're probably not going to be able to bring Mr. bin Laden to justice."

Goss said however that "we are making very good progress on it," especially in the area of human intelligence.
