It’s interesting to note that now that bin Laden is gone, Pakistan is getting all up in arms about it. It’s like the typical person who has been caught in a lie: they hem and haw and make excuses. I bet that not only did they hide Bin Laden, I’m sure that the administration knew about him, and in some way even supported his efforts – maybe even used some of the money that we gave to Pakistan in order to fund Al Qaeda. I’ll bet that if we treated Pakistan like a foe from the beginning, then I’ll bet that we would have found him years ago. I partly blame Bush: for all his blustering, I don’t think he wanted to pick a fight with Pakistan, thinking optimistically that they might come around to the side of good. But he was wrong, Bush wasn’t enough of a distrusting hawk to want to think that Pakistan was an enemy state, harboring our most wanted.
