    Default Osama: did they know?

    Just a quick poll, interested in knowing if you think high-ranking members of the Pakistani government and/or military and/or intelligence agency knew he was there the whole time. Gut feelings welcome.

    I'm leaning towards "yes", but honestly I don't really know.

    I'm leaning towards Yes. Fact they were pissed off they weren't informed, and with it actually LEADING to osama being finally caught, looks very naughty. .

    If you're leaning strongly towards yes, vote yes. We'll probably never know, obviously, so none of that "Pretty sure they did, but I didn't actually personally see them meeting him so I voted I dunno". Dunno is more intended for people who are entirely on the fence.

    Somebody knew. Maybe not everybody, but somebody.

    I can't believe they wouldn't have ordered out for pizza at some point during that ten-year span.

    No one here has any special knowledge of the Pakistani gov inner workings; and if we did, we sure wouldn't be posting about it here on a public typology site and outing ourselves.

    I'm sure they did.

    Better question, what could or should they have done with that knowledge? For a state with nukes the Pakistani government is looking pretty weak and unstable to me at the moment, they were either complicit in Bin Laden and his operations or they were too afraid to move against him. Neither's particularly a good thing all things considered.

    There was some suspicion that OBL had kidney disease, and required dialysis. According to news reports, the compound where he was staying didn't have any electrical power. Therefore, if he was being treated with dialysis, it wasn't at home... it was at some local health care facility.

    Therefore, somebody knew.
