A hotly disputed U.S. Senate report concluded that waterboarding and other controversial interrogation methods provided no key evidence in the hunt for Osama bin Laden, according to congressional aides and outside experts familiar with the investigation.The CIA continues to dispute the report's findings.The most high-profile detainee linked to the bin Laden investigation was Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, whom the CIA waterboarded 183 times. Mohammad, intelligence officials have said, confirmed after his 2003 capture that he knew an important Al-Qaeda courier with the nom de guerre Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti.U.S. officials have described how Libi fabricated a name for a trusted courier and denied knowing Kuwaiti.Intelligence officials have previously described how, when the CIA could not find bin Laden's courier, NSA eavesdroppers found a lead in 2010, when Ahmed had a telephone conversation with someone monitored by U.S. intelligence, which was then able to follow Ahmed to bin Laden's hideout.
