With Pakistan being a majority Muslim nation, and among them many are radical Muslims who see Osama Bin laden as a hero.
To make peace with the more tribal regions of Pakistan I am sure this kind of move was to be expected.
Remember it was not that long ago that there was an attempt to take out the Pakistani President.
I wonder if that had an an effect on them?
Despite what the U.S. wishes are the Pakistani government cannot simply ignore the Muslim population of their nation.
It is a fine line Pakistan walks in aiding the U.S. war on terrorism and controling its population.
If Pakistan were to capture or kill Bin Laden.. They may face numorus attacks and perhaps some form of civil war.
Interesting find worldwatcher
