In a new documentary, Alan Parrot makes a case that Bin Laden has been living comfortably in Iran since at least 2003.
Parrot was once the chief falconer for the Shah of Iran. One of his contacts, a warlord from the north of Iran, reveals in the film that he has met Bin Laden six times on hunting trips inside Iran since March 2003, with their last confirmed meeting in 2008.
Parrot's story is supported in the documentary by former CIA agent Robert Baer.
