On the revelation that bin Laden was living less than two hours’ drive north of the capital, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said: “Certainly, we have intelligence failure of the rest of the world including the United States.

“There is intelligence failure of the whole world, not Pakistan alone,” he told reporters during a visit to Paris.

About that high ground maneuver thing: It doesn’t always make sense.


I’m amused by how the Pakistani government is claiming that not a single military or ISI or government official knew about Osama’s hideout. (At this point, they’re just trying too hard to be cute.)

And also by how others are claiming that everyone affiliated with the Pakistani military or ISI or government knew about it all along.
