NSA cracked Qaeda communication network to hunt down bin-Laden

Washington, Aug. 31 : The classified data leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden about the alleged US 'snoop-ops' show that the agency's methods helped in exploiting the al Qaeda communication network and locate Osama bin Laden's hideout.


The documents which also reveal the agency's 'black budget' state that an arm of the NSA known as the Tailored Access Operations (TAO) group provided data from mobile phones used by al Qaeda operatives and other persons of interest for the Abbottabad operation.

According to New York Post, the Navy SEALs who raided the Abbottabad compound and killed the militant were guided by a fleet of satellites.

The TAO group is known for secretly installing spy-ware and tracking devices on mobile-phone networks and computers.
