OSAMA BIN LADEN'S HIDING PLACE.
Act now, Mr. President.
Now that the U.S. Government has successfully completed a phase of its national security agenda, by eliminating the notorious Osama Bin Laden, there is a slew of tremendously important matters to grapple with, both domestic and foreign.
One of them being the Obama administration's relations with Pakistan, and whether it (Pakistan) has been frank in coming forward with correct and tangible information about Bin Laden before the raid of the U.S. Navy Seals' action to kill him only last week.
There have been several denials from that country's top officials that there has been no information withheld from the U.S. Intelligence unit searching for Bin Laden for all these months, if not years.
The Pakistani Foreign Minister has persistently said that there has been no knowledge of Bin Laden's whereabouts since the 9/11 attacks; and just yesterday, the Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has angrily denied that there has been any collusion among Pakistani security forces to hide Bin Laden.
The backlash in regard to Bin Laden's killing will continue to grow; however, everybody now knows that he cannot manage to hide out in a compound only a few miles from Islamabad, and about 800 yards from a high profile Pakistani military training center in Abbottabad.
It has lately been learned that CIA operatives lived close by; but nobody has been told the length of time that they have been monitoring the compound, which has been the sanctuary for Bin Laden for so long a time; five whole years, to be precise.
President Barack Obama has said that his government will thoroughly investigate the matter and would get to the bottom of how the whole thing should have come about. Good.
However, Pakistan receives billions of U.S. dollars in aid to prop up its military forces; and so, if its officials cannot be forthright with the United States to capture a criminal like Osama Bin Laden, then what is the point of shelling out so much money to that country?
It (aid) must be stopped, forthwith. It has to be forfeited for now, until they are truthful about whether Bin Laden has had a "support system", and even protection from capture, within Pakistan, for all these years.
The Obama administration must act without hesitation.
