I am so furious that Pakistan was willing to take $20 billion dollars of American tax payer money since 9/11 yet refused to turn Bin Laden over to us. I just read that Bin Laden was reportedly walking around Pakistan in broad daylight in a town filled with military personal. The world's most wanted man is living right there in the shadows of the Pakistan military and here we are giving Pakistan funding while they give the Devil himself shelter and protection.
Did we get taken? $20 billion is not chump change, this is hard earned American tax payers monies. Where there signs? Apparently so, a few months ago the Pakistan government threw out all American contract employees from there country. I guess we should have seen the writing on the wall.
It is funny when you ask Clinton about our relationship with Pakistan she is quick answer 'Good', but when asking Leon Panetta from the CIA he says our relationship is 'difficult' at best.
Obviously Pakistan is a very difficult country to work with because what the government wants and what the people want are two very different things. The government does in some sense want to be trusted allies with the US, the people not so much. I think that going into Pakistan without their knowledge is the best thing we ever did. Had we told Pakistan I am certain Bin Laden would have been alerted.
I watched video of the building he stayed in for the past five years and it screams 'Illegal actives here!!!!', It is completely different than the buildings that surrounds it. It is taller and has very high walls lined with razor wire. Come' On they knew who was living there, they just turned the other cheek and ignored it. Thanks Pakistan!
