Geologist Recognizes bin Laden Hideout

A geologist says he knows where Osama bin Laden is hiding because he recognizes the rocks behind him in the video he released after the September 11 attacks.

John Ford Shroder, who spent years living in Afghanistan, says that particular type of rock only exists in one region. The video must have been filmed in either Paktia or Paktika province in the south east near Pakistan. The region, which is filled with caves, is controlled by the Pashtuns, an ethnic group loyal to the Taliban.

Shroder, who is now a professor at the University of Nebraska, recognized the type of rock as soon as he saw the video on TV. ?I turned to my wife and told her ?I know where he is,?? says Shroder.

Other geologists have confirmed this information and Shroder has contacted the U.S. government about this.
