In lieu of Sunday's fantastic news that Bin Laden the Butcher is dead, I had a question that kept drumming through my head. "How was this man able to hide in "plain sight?" in a million dollar home? In Pakistan?
They must have had some indication? Someone as recognizable as that man could not have just walked into the country, set up house, armed it and had it guarded without some warning bells going off, am I right?
The United States has regarded Pakistan as a one of our top allies in the fight against the Taliban, al Queda or any terrorist threat. But I am a bit suspicious that they may be playing both sides. Which is probably why the US government did not inform the Pakistan government of this raid.
And, furthermore, the United States has also been quite generous with our anti-terrorist pals with $18 billion foreign assistance and reimbursements, which 2/3rds of which are security related.
So, what's your opinion on this? I am very curious to hear your answers.
