21. Actually, according to the tapes of Nixon that were recently released,
the special relationship with Pakistan was established by the Nixon administration at a time when we viewed the India/USSR alliance as a great threat.
Paranoia gets people in trouble.
Paranoia at the top level of the government gets countries into big trouble.
That Bin Laden was either dead or in Pakistan, possibly Iran, was a no brainer. No other country would have hosted him. He couldn't escape to any other country.
His precise location had to have been known to Pakistani intelligence. You don't need to be a spy to figure this out.
But the information as to who in Pakistani intelligence knew where Bin Laden was is a real secret seems to me. Somebody talked too much. That is the kind of secret that our government should keep, and the person who revealed it should face problems in my opinion. I hate to be vindictive, but even though it was easy to guess that Bin Laden was in Pakistan, information about who knew precisely where he was should not be divulged seems to me.
