Obama says that TSP agreed that this is a good thing to do after the IS generals asked their counterparts, no kidding. I hope the farce dosen't continue.

So all those tapes by OBL at regular intervals were all from TSP. No wonder.

Obama gave no credit to TSP. He says he ordered a team today and after a firefight they killed OBL and took him away to Afghanistan.


He keeps saying TSP is victim of terror. And is praising them@@@

Not good.

It is my guess that pakis helped in the most general way (or probably no help at all). He also asked Pakis to continue cooperation. So I will be surprised if Pakis played a major role.

CNN picking up on Paki authorities help right after Obama's speech... More Baksheesh to follow. But nothing will change from India's perspective. It has always been this situation for us. So let the game continue...

interesting comment about TSP. Obama thanks Zardari, and said US military officials spoke to their TSP counterparts. And he called on TSP to take on terrorists. R-man, can you parse this statement? Didn't sound like a ringing endorsement of TSP to me. Speech is still going on, so lets see what else he says about TSP.

There was a news sometime back that Unkil was surprised and shocked at how TSP was allowing OBL to live so freely in TSP. If anyone finds it please link it here.

Another discussion is how AQ will take revenge. Is it hijacking or worse? Need to analyze the response and predict it based on combined community knowledge.

I repeat again to keep focussed. There will be no change to condom. US will just help Pakistan as long chaand aur suraj rahega. Any other thoughts are all joke.

There was a firefight involving a small US team and the body of Osama was helicoptered to Afghanistan.

Zardari is Dead Man Walking. Obama just thanked him.

I'm pretty sure OBL died long ago back in 2002 as Benazir Bhutto announced.

His body has probably been kept on ice since then ... if it even exists.

The reason this news is being given publicity now is because US wants to withdraw from Afghanistan and claim mission accomplished without losing face.

The main objective however which was the destruction of the Taliban has not succeeded or succeeded only partially much like with the Soviets.

Think about it - a guy like OBL wouldn't survive more than a couple of months running around in Pakistan post-911.

The silver lining (around the Paki cloud) is that Pakis are running out of cards...

At this stage, TV reporters are just speculating. We will get exact information in next few weeks.

I dont think AQ can take any kind of revenge from US unless ISI helps them out.

Obama also asked Pukes to continue the party line and help the US in the war on terror. That is more of an implicit threat to the Pukes rather than the usual "you've suffered the same fate and you've helped us." It's a delicate balance and Obama is finessing it.

More likely that lack of CIA ISI cooperation meant that ISI could not get information to move Osama out in time.

My immediate reaction:

1. Pakistan's core leadership - i.e. the army - has known of Osama all along
2. Amirkhan found out and last week confronted Pakjabis with irrefutable evidence, large carrots and larger sticks.
3. Pakjabi army gave up Osama.
4. Pakistan is even more f*cked as the more pious start to realize the implications of # 3.

Posted on The News 3 Hours ago:

ABBOTTABAD: Three loud blasts were heard near the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) Kakul Road late Sunday night and a military helicopter also crashed. Sources told Geo News that heavy firing was heard in the area before the chopper crashed.

Windowpanes of the nearby buildings and houses were smashed due to the intensity of the blasts, the sources said. Eyewitnesses said first sound of heavy firing was heard and then there was a huge blast. Fire erupted at the scene of the occurrence and according to latest reports police and fire brigade teams were rushing towards the blast scene. Security forces cordoned off the entire area and military helicopters were also hovering over the area.

I fervently wish that ombaba profusely thanks the paki khakis for this operation. The whole of the Arab world will start gunning for paki khakis if US announces paki help and thanks the khakis. within a few weeks paki cities will be attacked with scores of fidayin attacks. inshallah !

Nope - Pakis have created the next card - loose nukes. This is the reason behind creating a huge number of nuclear weapons and even tomtomming this news through various channels.

Loose nukes from Pakistan will be the next card.

Paks have accepted heavy GUBO as a quid pro quo for a honorable mention of their name. Expect Paks to do the US dirty work in Afghan land for this in the coming year.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbottabad

seems like a ooty or kodaikanal of Pak.

TV is reporting two helicopters landed on the mansion for the strike. so likely a delta force unit based out of afghanistan or jacobabad.

its also showing lot of Pak army and armoured cars on the street to keep the peace now....

wonder that leaves #2 mullah omar now...?

I wonder if we will get to see pictures of his body (hope some of the special ops folks took pictures which might surface after some time), how will they dispose of his body? I am sure he will not be buried in a public place because that would become the homage spot for all kinds of terrorists generations to come.

- India watch out for TSP taking out frustration.
