Re: Breaking News - Osama Bin Laden - killed In Pakistan

There is no way that pakis had ANY idea of the operation or the fact that USA had tracked OBL down.

If they had, the ISI would have moved him away from Abbottabad ASAP, they would never ever have allowed any of this to go down so close to the PMA.
