    Did the Pakistani Government know Bin Laden was in their country?

    The government of Pakistan claims they did not know Bin Laden was in their country per the raid that killed him.  I do not believe them. It seems to me that Bin Laden was under a kind of house arrest? The Pakistanis were mad we did not tell them about the raid ahead of time but if we had I think Bin Laden would have been tipped off.

    You are totally correct!! Of course they knew he was there. If we would have contacted their government about the mission? Bin-ladin would be alive today.

    The Pakistan top brass, by this I mean the President ( at that time Musharraf) the army chief and elements of the ISI had complete knowledge of Bin Laden. In fact they selected his haven close to the Pak military academy just 100 km from their capital.

    They knew whoever it was was there. We'll never know if that was the real ben Ladin or one of his famous doubles. The body was disposed of before reliable proof could be developed, a suspicious circumstance were there ever one. Pakistani intelligence has long said the real ben Ladin died of his kidney disease years ago. They may have been lying to shield him. They may have been telling the truth. It's too late to find out.

    Most probably, he lived literally next to a Pakistani base, there was a reason they were not notified beforehand of the U.S. attack.
