Wikileaks released a set of leaked Guantanamo prisoner files to the public last week. Among them a document dated from 2008 mentioned both Osama's trusted courier's name and Abbottabad, the city which Osama had been hiding inside. There are speculations that, fearing al-Qaida realize their courier may have been tracked and move Osama, the US administration accelerated their plan and attacked the target site over the weekend. This link highlights the relevant section of the document.

So if the first kill from Wikileaks is OBL, shouldn't we be giving them a medal, rather than complaining about them?
Apparently, the US knew where he was for the past 3 years and did nothing until Wikileaks pointed out we knew something about someone who may know something. Where's the line between cautious and negligent? Or have we been tracking him accurately for that long without his knowledge and using that knowledge to dismantle the organization? Though if we were doing that with any efficiency, we should have had much better results than we have had so far.
