'Complacent' Laden had no escape plan

“US officials say several key indicators bolster their initial impression that bin Laden had a support network in Pakistan that resulted in his staying in one location for the past several years, feeling comfortable he would not get caught,” CNN reported.

The officials, familiar with the latest assessment of the May 2 raid, pointed out that there is no apparent sign that bin Laden had a ready escape plan, according to the report.

The al-Qaeda chief did not appear to have the means or make an attempt to destroy the reams and gigabytes of documents before Navy Seals assaulted his compound, CNN quoted sources as saying.
