All that money in assistance to Islamabad to help fight fundamuslimist terrorism, and Bin-Laden was camped outside of the capital, and close to major military instillations. There is going to be hell to pay for that one. The Obama administration might try to wall paper over that unpleasant fact of Pakistan’s duplicitous dealings with both sides, but US Congress might very well vote to end all funding to them. KGS
Bin Laden’s luxury hideout raises questions
ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan (AP) — Osama bin Laden made his final stand in a small Pakistani city where three army regiments with thousands of soldiers are based not far from the capital – a location that is increasing suspicions in Washington that Islamabad may have been sheltering him.
The U.S. acted alone in Monday’s helicopter raid, did not inform Pakistan until it was over and pointedly did not thank Pakistan at the end of a wildly successful operation. All this suggests more strain ahead in a relationship that was already suffering because of U.S. accusations that the Pakistanis are supporting Afghan militants and Pakistani anger over American drone attacks and spy activity.
