    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton believes Pakistan officials knows where the man who took down the World Trade Center  is holed up.

    Clinton, who was a New York Senator at the time of the Sept. 11th attacks, appeared on Fox News Channel’sOn the Record” where she said that America will not be satisfied until it gets the most wanted fugitive of the world, terror chief Osama Bin Laden.

    The Secretary of State also implied that someone in the Pakistani government knows something about the whereabouts of the al-Qaeda leader.

    "I want those guys," she said from Pakistan. "I assume somebody in this [Pakistani] government, from top to bottom, does know where Bin Laden is, and I'd like to know too."

    Clinton spent the weekend before her daughters wedding repairing the strained relationship between the United States and Pakistan. Clinton outlined an aide program that sought to ameliorate the Pakistani public to the American presence.

    Secretary Clinton also took the opportunity to urge the Pakistani government to move against any political threat in the region threats that may harbor Taliban leadership.

    The former New York Senator stressed that the U.S. will stay in the region saying, "It would be a mistake to walk away," and cited the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan as a results of U.S. withdrawal in the region.

    But Clinton made one thing clear, “Having been a senator from New York on 9/11, I want those guys -- I mean, I will not be satisfied until we get them."
