Sources tell ABC News that administration officials believe Osama bin Laden had been living at the Abbottabad, Pakistan compound for years, with one senior administration source even suggesting the compound was specifically built in 2005 for the al Qaeda leader.
That this compound was constructed in the neighborhood of former Pakistani military officials and a local military academy is of course calling into question the participation of the local if not national government.
Its inconceivable that bin Laden did not have a support system in the country that allowed him to remain there for an extended period of time, said White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan on Monday.
As always, there is a line that the US government walks when it comes to its alliance with Pakistans government. The Pakistanis seldom are as cooperative as the US wants them to be, and yet the US cannot afford to alienate the countrys leadership.

Now, how about the facts?
It seams to me that it was built specifically for Seal Team Six. They didn’t have a problem getting around.
Gee, How I long for the days when people like Hugh Trevor-Roper roamed the streets of post war Germany.
I don’t know. That may be easier said than done in this case.
“Captain Obvious, the CIA is on the phone for you...something about a building in Pakistan.”
Yes, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the authenticated diaries of Osama bin Laden to be published.
I don’t think he got a good deal on the compound.
Looked like crap. Of course, everything is relative, and in real estate, the three most important factors are location,location, and location.
I believe our money built that compound.
I had that exact same idea.
I think we will learn that he was not only being “allowed” to stay there but was being “required” to do so. In return for keeping him safe, housed, and protected, the sneaky Paki bastards were holding him as a bargaining chip, IMHO. Hopefully we will see....
Using U.S. taxpayer funds, no doubt...
It looks sort of like Koresh’s compound in Waco, doesn’t it?
And just ‘who’ designed and built that compound ?
Cut off the $3,000,000,000.00 a year we give them that is borrowed from China too!
