After some tough talk on Pakistan, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said some people in its government are aware of the whereabouts of elusive Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Omar.

The Obama administration, meanwhile, for the first time accused the Taliban of being behind the botched Times Square bombing plot.

“Some Pakistani officials were more informed about Al-Qaeda and Taliban than they let on,” Clinton told CBS. “I believe somewhere in this government are people who know where Osama bin Laden is, where Mullah Omar and the leadership of the Afghan Taliban is and we expect more cooperation to help us bring to justice, capture or kill, those who attacked us on 9/11/”

The US top diplomat acknowledged there was a “sea change” in cooperation by Pakistani authorities, but added “we want more”.
