    You cannot talk on your mobile phone in non-private areas, so grenades are probably a big no-no too.

    This was from May of last year, Osama had support system in Pakistan, admits envoy

    Pakistan has acknowledged Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden had "support system" in the country, but asserted that the government was unaware of his presence on its soil. "Obviously, bin Laden did have a support system in Pakistan. The issue was that support system within the government and the state of Pakistan or within the society of Pakistan," Pakistan ambassador to United States Husain Haqqani said.

    "We all know that there are people in Pakistan who share the same belief system as bin Laden and other extremists. So that is a fact, that there are people who probably protected him," he told CNN. But, he maintained that Pakistan was unaware of bin Laden's presence on its soil.

    "We did not know. We had no knowledge. And if we had knowledge, we would have acted upon it long ago," he said. The envoy said Pakistan government will conduct an inquiry that how its intelligence failed to notice his presence in Islamabad's proximity.


    "We will do a full inquiry into finding out why our intelligence services were not able to track him earlier. Any question about intelligence failure will definitely be addressed by us (Pakistan and US) jointly. We are allies," he said.
    What is the likelihood that the first part is true?
    What is the likelihood that the second part has or will actually take place? Has the pretense of this process even begun by the Pakistani government?

    "If the Pakistani government had known that Osama bin Laden was there, we would have got him, like we got Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (a 9/11 mastermind), like we got Ramzi bin al-Shibh, like we got many others."
    Is this true? Are they credited with this by others? Or just by themselves?

    It's possible -- but there's also a lot of variation in what the statement might mean -- saying that the government didn't *know* that he had support from a specific support system is different than nobody within government knowing, or looking the other way because they didn't want to know, etc. The statement might be the complete truth, and it might be completely false, it might be anywhere in between. Not enough information to tell.

    I'm less optimistic about this being true. What incentive does the Pakistani government have to implicate itself, or any part of itself, in hiding Bin Laden? Right now, there is (apparently) reasonable doubt about whether or not the support was officially sanctioned by the government. An investigation isn't going to *prove* that nobody knew. It *might* prove that somebody did. There's every reason for this "investigation" to be a going-through-the-motions PR/appeasement stunt.
