    Yes, and we should start with the Arab-Israeli Conflict.
    Israel needs to learn to live with its neighbors.
    There NEEDS to be a Two State Solution and justice for the Palestinians.
    We should stop the absurd amounts we send Israel in foreign aide. Why should we send it to them – so they can purchase additional submarines with nuclear missile capability from the Germans? Aide to the Israelis is absurd, especially when we are laying off educators, police and fire fighting people.
    Our elected officials NEED to put the priorities of the American people ahead of their campaign interests

    Without a shadow of any doubt, the Pakistani knew where he was and they kept accepting his rent form USA tax payers money for years, in countries like Pakistan which has a huge security apparatus, they would have all information for residence within 30 miles radius and specifically large compounds from all military facilities, or they must be real incompetent intelligent gathering , and I am sure that the US government knows now for certain, but is keeping it from public to save face.

    Ok, so they did know. What is the surprise? Where the heck could he have gone after Bora Bora. He hid in India for some time and then was pushed over. A look at the map could have answered that question 10 years ago. No rocket science. So now what? Are we going to bomb India. Drone New Delhi? Turn Pakistan to dust? Stop aid? Let the hounds (CNN) loose? Do it!! This discussion is counterproductive. Move on. Let us focus on the causes of terrorism and try to fix the issues. They have been hanging out there for over 60 years ...Palestine..Kashmir. Let us focus on the victims of 9/11 and help the families more than we have done. Let us take care of their kids and put them through college. Let us take care of their wives/husbands/parents. Let us take care of over 200,000+ families whose dear ones gave their lives in Pakistan fighting this terror war. Let us focus on the victims in Afghanistan. They are so many. Keeping on harping about who knew or didn't about UBL is irrelevant. Assume they all did. So what???!!!!

      So it is obvious that you are from Pakistan. Your country has become the laughing stock of entire world because of your double standard. Just to hide your face you are including India's name in your comment. When ISI of Pakistan is providing shelter in Pakistan, why he need to go to India where there is a possibility that he will be caught.

    This has to be one of the most pathetic news articles I have seen in quite a while. A promising question leading to some good information has nothing more than a single sentence.

    This is horrible, CNN.

    America and the world knows that Pakistan has a bigger role with terrorism and it is one of the biggest backroom producer of terrorism. Still, America is taking mine and other Americans tax money to feed those idiots. For what?

      We would expect that the "fool me once shame on you.... " saying would apply on this Paki ISI politics which appears to be fooling the US and the world for decades but it in reality it does seem that way, the US and the world can't be that gullible. The magicians and their assistance are all participants in a circus act!
