Osama bin Laden report leak:Pakistan blocks Al-Jazeera website.

Islamabad: Pakistan on Tuesday blocked the website of Al-Jazeera after it leaked a controversial report about al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's decade-long stay in the country before he was killed by US special forces at his Abbottabad hideout.

The Qatar-based broadcaster uploaded on Monday a report by Pakistani investigators detailing official failure to check bin Laden's free movement and unhindered stay at several places before killed in secret US raid in garrison town of Abbotabad in 2010.

Official sources said that Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), the country's telecom watchdog, asked the private Internet service providers to block the website for the time being.

The orders were not fully implemented as at several places the website was running uninterrupted including at the office of Al-Jazeera in Islamabad.

At some places in the capital Islamabad and other cities people faced problems accessing the website.

Ahmad Ali, an Internet cafe owner in Rawalpindi near Islamabad, said that his customers complained that they could not access the website.

A PTA official, however, rejected reports that they had asked for suspension.

"We did not ask anyone to block the service to any website," said PTA spokesperson Kurrum Mehran.

The report by the Abbottabad Commission has taken a shot at the official failure of national security agencies to trace the most wanted man roaming in busy streets without any security guards.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
