ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan – Pakistan's army chief is meeting with top commanders to discuss the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden.



The Pakistani army has so far not explained when and how it learned about the operation, or why it didn't take any action against the incursion of helicopters, which officials from both countries say took off from neighboring Afghanistan.



Pakistani officials say Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani may make a statement at the end of Thursday's meeting. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.


If im reading the article correctly, this is just the Pakistani military talking amongst themselves without the US talking with them. I wonder what information will come out of this meeting....if they release any information at all.

In the 2nd paragraph above, it asks why Pakistan didnt take any action against the helicopters. Maybe a typo in the article? Maybe theres something more to this? Did Pakistan want to shoot down the helicopters?

Osama was obviously being taken care of by the Pakistanis. They set him up in a nice, large compound not far from the capital. I often wonder how good our relationship actually is with them. They have nukes. There was that threat about there being nukes used if something happened to him. Where else would they get nukes? Possibly the Pakistan military, which has been going through some crazy changes in the last decade, could have slipped some to al-Qaeda. Could the Pakistan army be really mad at us? And if a nuke goes off, couldn't it be traced back to wherever it came from? I think nukes have fingerprints in their radioactive materials, but I can't exactly remember for sure.

From what Ive seen in the media the past 24-48 hours, there definantly alot of Pakistan bashing going on. I dont really think there's much trust with the Pakistani military.

A few days before Osama was killed, Pakistan was threatening to shoot down our drones that were bombing targets in Pakistan.

Im guessing we will find out what will happen with Pakistan within the next week or 2.

Pakistan is basically corrupt and broke country just like many countries around the world with no true economical revenue generated by the country or play a significant role as a big international trading partner in the world for goods and services.

The only income the government is receiving or atleast part of it is from the world bank and US in the form of TIP (what you give a waiter at a hotel). Pakistan soon realized that this is the best way to keep the side income coming in is to lead the US on a wild goose chase (atleast for the last 10 years they did) while supporting the terrorist groups and housing them in their own country. Is the country that weak that it cannot remove a small group of terrorist(s) or its leader? Is the Pakistani Army that weak? Common now. The Sri Lankan government eventually outsted the Tamil Tigers after waiting patiently for 20 plus years.

Pakistan needs the money to train few other terrorist organizations to continue its pressure and effort to push the LOC with India in the Kashmir Region. The money it doesn't have so they designed and masterminded 9/11 and kept milking the money for its proxy wars with India while leading the US on a wild goose chase in afghanistan for Bin Laden while the dude was living safely from the nation's top military academy.

Basically they used US as a cash cow and feeding garbage for informatino on the Taliban and Al Qaida operatives. Sure they killed and captured some but who the hell knows if they just went out randomly shooting homeless and poor people in the slums and branding them as terrorist(s) and showing the evidence to the US for all the cash it pays every year in Foreign Aid?

Surely the corruption exists in many governments around the world and its nothing new. But the discussion is just a PR crap and effort to cover their butts from being exposed to the rest of the world after they were caught with their pants down.
