May, 2011 – I was in Islamabad on an official visit to meet with counterparts. This visit coincided with the famous ‘taking out’ of OBL in Abbotabad, Pakistan and, it was only the night before I and a diplomat talked about Abbotabad over dinner. The next day I received text messages from colleagues asking if I had any role in the OBL operation. The travel and the meetings that followed were a great experience. Here’s a video clip by CNN.
