    Pakistan's intelligence service has arrested the owner of a safe house rented to the CIA to observe Osama bin Laden's compound before the U.S. raid that killed the al-Qaida leader, as well as a "handful" of other Pakistanis, a U.S. official said late Tuesday.

    In Pakistan, a Western official confirmed a New York Times report that five of the Pakistani informants who fed information to the CIA before the May 2 raid were arrested by Pakistan's top military spy agency.

    The officials spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence matters.

    Maybe I've seen just one James Bond movie too many, but don't they usually evacuate their sources to protect them from shit like this?

    I have to wonder if our relations with Pakistan are so bad, why didn't we expect this?

    Former US Intelligence Chiefs: Pakistan Must Stop Playing Both Sides
    August 09, 2011 - The relationship between the United States and Pakistan has been severely strained in recent months. Two former top U.S. intelligence officials say the relationship has been sorely tested because Pakistan has been trying to have it both ways by cooperating with U.S. counterterrorism efforts while maintaining ties with Taliban groups.

    See?

    They support terrorism. Just cut off the money going to them and put up a border between Afghanistan and Pakistan with the money we would usually be giving to Pakistan.


    They are a lost cause that isn't worth trying for. Just make it where Afghanistan can handle their own and lets come back home.

    Shoot each caveman that crosses the border. Tell Pakistan tough shit and let them kill each other off over there. Tensions would definitely rise, but they really cant do anything about it since they are in the wrong.
    Yes, getting Bin Laden was Wrong and Very Illegal. But do you know what was more Wrong and possibly even more Illegal? Giving Bin Laden a safe heaven while Pakistan's Army kept him in the dark.

    Pakistan must stop supporting the Haqqani network in any form.
