Orlando, Florida - Christopher Hinn predicted Osama bin Laden was hiding in plain view and warned of Pakistani complicity, now calls for heightened vigilance.
Christopher Hinn, former Senior Middle East Advisor, US Department of Homeland Security, predicted two months ago that Osama bin Laden was not hiding out in caves anywhere.
On February 18, 2011 he stated on Fox News that there was a reason that the most powerful and technologically advanced nation on earth had been unable to find the world’s most wanted criminal (Listen: http://youtu.be/biXto5S68pQ). He said prophetically it was time for the Pakistani government to “come clean and tell us where he is.”
Mr. Hinn reiterated this week that the Pakistani government has been harboring bin Laden for a long time, and that the attacks on our country for the last two years have been Pakistani driven. He further stated that he has been a critic of the Pakistani government for a long time, and that it is time to pull the plug on foreign aid to this so-called ally who has provided cover for the criminal responsible for over 3000 deaths in our country and other horrific acts of terrorism and murder of innocent people worldwide.

Christopher Hinn was raised in the Middle East, Canada, and the US and is fluent in Arabic, Hebrew, French, and English. He served as the Senior Middle East Advisor to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Deputy Assistant Administrator at the Office of International Affairs at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Currently, Hinn is a Middle East expert on terrorism prevention and has developed the Extremism Identification and Terrorism Prevention program (EITP), educating federal, state and local law enforcement on how to understand the Middle Eastern mindset of extremism and radicalization.
He is a passionate advocate of education and awareness of cultural differences as the key to both security and peace. He emphatically states that the bin Ladens of the world are not the Middle East, but the extremist and violent fringe element that has become a stereotype of the region. He says every nation and region has some of these elements, and we should no more take these extremists as the norm for a region than we would want others to characterize all Americans as Timothy McVeighs,(our own home-grown Oklahoma terrorist).
Christopher Hinn says that to understand the Middle East, it is not enough to have Middle East experience; you have to live the Middle East experience. Mr. Hinn’s forthcoming book on the Middle East will be available to the public this summer.
