That fiction is now exposed. Bin Laden was not killed in an assault on a Taliban safe haven in the mountain caves within Afghanistan. He was shot inside a large, relatively new home, apparently purpose built for him, in a town filled with retired Pakistani military officers and on the virtual doorstep of the Pakistan Military Academy. This is an area filled with Pakistani security forces and firmly under the control of the government in Islamabad. In my humble opinion Pakistanis share much of the ideology of the Islamic fundamentalists against whom we are fighting and Im not at all sure their government is on the right side of this conflict. Bin Laden is dead. Al Qaeda is not. The war goes on and may yet for many more years. We cannot continue to prosecute this war based on the fantasy that the Pakistanis are wilco. Personally, I don't trust them.
