US & Pak must be in cahoots to keep Osama in a secure hideout

Reader comment on item: Thoughts on the Killing of Osama bin Laden

Submitted by Ghulam Muhammed (India), May 3, 2011 at 01:44

By all accounts, Osama Bin Ladin's destiny was not only juxtaposed with USA, but it can be said, it was controlled by the USA. His life and death were both were America's controlled operations to suit its own political, defense and strategic agenda, to use and abuse the person of Osama and make him the counterpoint to all American hegemony moves in wider world. He was, in effect and for all practical purposes, an American asset.

However much Obama and US media would like to project Osama's death, a major clandestine operation of the CIA and Navy Seals; half a trillion dollar spend on intelligence activities after 9/11 would appear to be a loot of US public money, if in all these ten years, US intelligence were supposed to be so incompetence and inefficient that they could not figure out where Osama is. There are any numbers of leads to surmise that successive Pakistani authorities, civilian and military, were hand in glove with the US, to keep Obama alive and disarmed, for any future strategic needs. The timing to put end to that arrangement, could be dictated by the shooting by the American CIA operative of two Pak intelligence details, in cold blood and the consequent falling off, of the Pak and American security agencies. The trigger incident so enraged the Pak military and intelligence hierarchy, the things never went back to the old relationship, even after a contrived Sharia arrangement to save the American murderer's life. There could have been signs picked by US intelligence, that Pak might renegade on its understanding with the US over Osama 'containment' and might end up releasing him to flee in other areas. That could be the reason that US had secretly decided to call it a day and finish the romance with Osama.
