#5 Oh, fer crying out loud. Time to send all the Pakistanis in the West back to Pakistan. As enemy nationals, will they face internment otherwise, when the SHTF? (Norway will probably want to keep theirs, and they are welcome to them).

#10 Someone had to the jail for Abbottabad = Pakistan's sins, + it wasn't going to be the Top Pakistani Govt-Army Officials whom had been hiding him there.

#11 Fired, hell, cp. Panetta should be in the cell beside him. >:-(

#12 I suspect, given the amount of scheming, backstabbing and skulduggery that seems to take place within the ISI, the Military, and yes, Pakistain itself, that there was inside help for both finding and whacking Binny. Pinning it on the good doctor short-circuits any investigation and provides cover for those involved.
And shame on Panetta for ratting him out. I'm with Gravi in #1 - we should go get this guy to demonstrate our gratitude and our determination. Yeah, and spite.

Nobody's that stupid. Even Michael Moore. He did it for a reason.
