He is dead but his network of is far from from over.
With the latest developments in the Middle East, time will tell(10-15 years) if mentalities will start to change. It is an ideological war and there is a whole "culture" of people that are ready to replenish AlQaeda numbers all the time.
Pakistan once again proved they knew more than what they admitted.
The compound was situated on a road called the Pakistan Military Academy road. The whole area teems with military establishments. I am pretty sure that the ISI/Army had no idea that he was living in that mansion.
My My our Green Slime left that out...obviously his irony chip wasn't functioning this morning or he was aware that my team are not the ISI's greatest fans and boast some success against "rogue operators" down helebobs!
Perhaps now we can stop the ridiculous restraint and actually take real concerted action against the Terristan Zone!
1. Pakistan knew where he was.
2. Pakistan knew the US knew where he was. The US knew Pakistan knew where he was. This has been the case for some time.
3. The US acted without telling Pakistan for fear of him dissappearing, knowing it would embarras Pakistan. This means change is in the wind. Could be big change. Maybe the relationship was starting to crumble anyway after the Davis incident.
4. Pakistan and the US acted together and the US gave Pakistan something huge behind the scenes. Not sure what.
This to me "feels" like a wind down in Afghanistan ops is on the horizon. The US wouldn't risk doing #3 without such an event, and I can't see Pakistan giving up OBL that easily otherwise.
I know the story on this event's details are sketchy at best but the more reliable sources fail to mention any Pakistani involvement in the operation. It does appear so far to be a solely US planned and executed mission. Some sources are claiming that ISI were involved before it was executed, but those sources are from where else.... the Pakistani media and Government.
I bet the only ISI involvement in this whole thing is cleaning the blood splatters off the walls!
It was better to kill him on the spot. Imagine all the things that would become public knowledge in a lengthy trial.. A lot of it would be political dynamite.
Mhh but hiding that political Dynamite does only make things worse, like extending the Afghan hassle, keeping that "uneasy" relationship with Pakistan untouched etc etc...Truth isn't always revolutionnary.
