Title: Pakistan and Osama's death
Post by: The Holy namelesskitty on May 06, 2011, 05:20:00 PM
I want to see what you think, Pakistan is denying everything, and going with option four, but what do you think as informed people?

He was living in a secure complex, in - what was it - the largest house? Around a kilometre away from a military academy?

They had a hand in it, almost certainly.

and there were no alarms raised, he was never protected, and us satellite imagery shows no guards ever around the complex, if he was protected then why in such a zone did nobody come to his aid?

To avoid getting on people's bad side. If they were aware that Osama was right next door (figuratively) and didn't do anything about it, that's pushing it. But if they were to send him aid, they'd brand themselves.

Do you think that when the CIA hid Soviet deserters, they told all the local military men and police to protect him?  I hope you don't think that because that would be stupid.  When you want to hide someone, it is best to tell as few people as possible.  The Pakistan's ISI knew that when they were hiding Osama.

Pakistan is playing both sides.  They are doing just enough against Al Qaeda to get billions of dollars in aid from America, while they are doing just enough for Al Qaeda to have a proxy force against thier archrival, India.

There was most likely a "left hand doesn't know what the right one is doing" scenario. The president might not have known, but some of those in the ISI did.

Or that's what I think. Incompetence rather than intentional.

I do not believe that Pakistan played any part in hiding bin Laden.
