To hunt Laden, satellites watched over Pak: Report

FrontLaden was killed in a raid in 2011

Separately, Tailored Access Operations capabilities were used in April 2011, the month before bin Laden was killed, when US forces in Afghanistan relied on signals intelligence from implants to capture 40 low and mid-level Taliban fighters and other insurgents in that country, according to the documents.

In addition to the satellites, the government flew an advanced stealth drone, the RQ-170, to eavesdrop on electronic transmissions.
