CIA organised fake vaccination drive to get Osama bin Laden's family DNA

• The Guardian

The CIA organised a fake vaccination programme in the town where it believed Osama bin Laden was hiding in an elaborate attempt to obtain DNA from the fugitive al-Qaida leader's family, a Guardian investigation has found.

As part of extensive preparations for the raid that killed Bin Laden in May, CIA agents recruited a senior Pakistani doctor to organise the vaccine drive in Abbottabad, even starting the "project" in a poorer part of town to make it look more authentic, according to Pakistani and US officials and local residents.

I don't buy it. I think they knew where Bin Laudin was in addition to the fact that they did not even want to get him.
Something else, something bigger is going on here.
