VIDEO:Bin Laden's life on the run

Posted: Updated:

By Nick Paton (CNN) New details are being reported about Osama bin Laden's life in Pakistan before he was captured.  

Behind these walls in Abbottabad, Bin Laden's world remained secret for years.

But a purported Pakistani government report, leaked to the media, scorns authorities at every level for not stopping the US raid - as depicted here in the film Zero Dark Thirty - and claims CIA agents were on the ground during the attack, and even chopped down nearby trees.

But it also reveals how the world's most wanted man lived before America caught up with him.

Worried he'd be seen by satellites or from nearby trees when in the garden shown by this amateur video, Bin Laden opted for a very American disguise

- he wore a cowboy hat.

And before the US SEALS trashed this kitchen, it stored his pick me up of choice - says the report - an apple and chocolate.

In these vegetable patches, he made his grandchildren compete to make the best vegetables.

On the rare moments he ventured out, the report says Bin Laden's car was once stopped

or speeding - but he wasn't recognized by the police and let go. He's even said to have once shaved his beard.

Revealing the hatred for American spies in Pakistan, the report says arrogant CIA officers felt they could own Pakistan's elite and it quotes a us spy saying:

"You are so cheap, we can buy you with a visa, with a visit to the US, even with a dinner".

NEITHER US OR PAKISTANI OFFICIALS WOULD COMMENT. PAKISTAN HAS SINCE FLATTENED THE HOUSE - BUT THIS REPORT REVEALS IT HASN'T MANAGED TO SUPPRESS THE HUGE APPARENT SHOCK AND EMBARRASSMENT  THE END OF THE HISTORY'S BIGGEST MANHUNT CAUSED.
