Here is an interesting quote from the Foreign Secretary of Pakistan and the search for Bin Laden:
Mr Bashir said the search for bin Laden was ‘a priority for everyone, including Pakistani intelligence’.
He also claims they tipped up off on this joint in 2009. Yet the PM says this:
Through the BBC, Prime Mister Yousuf Raza Gilani said, “We have intelligence failure [with the] rest of the world, including the United States.”
All these statement seem to contradict so who should I believe, well it’s pretty hard to believe any of them when you read this:
Until he was finally hunted down and killed by U.S. special forces on Sunday, the world’s most wanted man lived in the garrison city of Abbottabad with his various wives for an incredible six years.
Further embarrassment followed yesterday when the BBC interviewed a 12-year-old boy who said he used to visit the building where Bin Laden had died and had met the Al Qaeda leader’s family.
‘I used to go to their house. He had two wives, one spoke Arabic, and the other one spoke Urdu. They had three children, a girl and two boys. They gave me two rabbits. They had installed a camera at the outer gate so they could see people before they entered the house,’ Zarar Ahmed said.
Ace thinks it might be a little unfair to imply the kids knew who he was. I don’t. This is supposed to an intelligence agency. This is single most wanted man in the world and his family in the town where the military academy is and the PM’s excuse is: Our intelligence agencies aren’t smarter than a 5th grader? C’MON! Lawrence O’Donnell wouldn’t try to sell that to liberals!
Betting on human stupidity is usually a safe wager but I’ll take my chips off the table for this one.
