#1 Here is a comment that was posted following a Times of India article:

[qt]I just saw a news programme on Al-Zazeera TV, in which the Arab reporters interviewed a few residents of Abbotabad, who lived in the neighborhood of the Compound where Osama lived from 1995. They said this house is strange, as it is almost 8 times larger than the houses in this area and it had about 18 feet high compound walls. The residents said the house always appeared mysterious, especially that it was located at a stone's throw away from Pakistani Military Academy and military establishment. The residents said that the town and the area is a highly Restricted Area, and EVERYBODY who wants to move in the area is subjected to a detailed security scrutinees, like checking IDs and references. Under these circutances, it was impossible for Bin Laden, his large family and armed security guards to be able to live there from 1995, without the protection of the ISI and Pak Army. The house was worth more than 1 million dollars and to survive in such a large and specially built house (large family and huge/constant medical expenses for ailing Osama) without any source of income was impossible, unless Bin Laden was being taken care of by the ISI, was not possible. Therefore, the conclusion is Osama was living in a ISI safe house.[/qt]

#4 does it really surprise any of you that the paki government knew where he was at? Obama must have threatened too cut off the checks when they found out his location, that's why they suddenly gave eprmission too go in.

#6 The Pakis announced they had agents involved in this operation. What they didn't explain was that those agents were part of Osama's guard detail.

#9 Why would that be sweet, Frank? Kinda like finding out your no-good freeloading boyfriend is also a backstabbing scumbag who hocked a family heirloom to spend on hookers and blow, gave you an incurable STD, ran over your dog, blames his abuse on your nagging, and still expects you to post bail after his 8th DUI arrest. Even when it isn't a shock, betrayal is never sweet.

Except if you mean the payback part?
