Hmm, I just ran across this: Press Release – Statement by Bill Harlow 5 October 2001.
It’s one short statement.
Numerous comments in the media recently have reiterated a widely circulated but incorrect notion that the CIA once had a relationship with Usama Bin Ladin. For the record, you should know that the CIA never employed, paid, or maintained any relationship whatsoever with Bin Ladin.
I’m going to have to dig into this a little further to figure out how the rumor started. I so want to believe this statement.
