I agtree with you, SPARKLE. The pakistanis are upset because Obama sent trooops into their country to get the job done. the man was in that compund FOR YEARS, just down the road from police station, all while the pakistani government was benefitting from US aid. There is no way anyone can tell me that they didn't know or even have an inkling that he was there. If the Pakistanis were serious about helping us, they would have "found him" long ago.

We didn't make him a martyr...he was made that by his followers...and that was going to happen regardless...

Any country that gave Osama "safe haven" deserved to be kept in the dark...10 plus years plus billions of U.S. aid should have yielded more "results" from the Pakistani government...sure they've arrested a lot of people, etc. but if the relationship between them and U.S. were all that great, President Obama wouldn't have had to keep this from them...sometimes going it alone is the best answer...

We do not stand alone went we stand behind God.



Still, it has been done — to Obama’s credit and good luck. He seized the spotlight, as he did the moment, offering us a crescendo of the word “I” — “I directed” and “I was briefed” and “I met repeatedly” and “I determined.” But what he did not mention was that he decided to go it alone. Our nominal allies in the fight for Afghanistan, the unreliable and unpredictable Pakistanis, were kept in the dark. Their sovereignty was violated, they lost face, and the United States, as a consequence, lost some cover. It cannot be said that Osama was killed by another Muslim. A martyr has been made.
