Pakistan has been on the receiving end of $18 billion dollars from the US in military aid since 9/11. OBL was their cash cow. They've been playing
the US all along.
Anytime the aid was held up or US force would act unilaterally, Pakistan would refuse to assist the US in pursuing Al-Queda. Remember the convoy of
