Intelligence analysts are sifting through phone numbers and email addresses found at Osama bin Ladens compound to determine potential links to Pakistani government and military officials while U.S. officials and analysts raise concerns about the safety of Pakistans nuclear materials.
According to three U.S. intelligence officials, the race is on to identify what President Obamas top counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, has called bin Ladens support system inside Pakistan. These sources sought anonymity because they are not authorized to speak to reporters.
My concern now is that we cannot exclude the possibility that officers in the Pakistani military and the intelligence service were helping to harbor or aware of the location of bin Laden, said Olli Heinonen, who served as the deputy director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) from 2005 to 2010.
What is to say they would not help al Qaeda or other terrorist groups to gain access to sensitive nuclear materials such as highly enriched uranium and plutonium?
The U.S. has worried quietly about the infiltration of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and military for years. Those concerns heightened in recent months when the CIA learned that bin Ladens compound in Abbottabad was a stones throw from Pakistan's military academy

Given that Paki’s AQ Khan was out there ‘helping’ every damned rogue country refine their nuclear program I don’t see what this nonsense is all about.
Pak just slapped Khan on the wrist and set him free IIRC.
I wonder if Bangalore is on the list of targets? Mostly all US financial institutions have data centers there.
Two of the a-holes on the bottom are mercifully gone.
When is Miss Lindsey up again?
How difficult would it be to take out Pakistan’s nukes?
‘Bangalore torpedoed’ indeed, that would make for an interesting headline around the globe.
India probably has the Paki nuclear sites identified and targeted. And they have a few scores they would like to settle.
Any other administration before him would have have not disclosed what was found on the hard drives. It should have been on a “need to know” bases only, at least until Stings were performed on “safe houses” and contacts were rounded up. John Brennan was flapping his gums within hours of these devices being powered up.
We all knew about the nukes.
What would be news would be Obozo actually doing something about them.
If they know where they are, they should be taken out.
Consider what a nuclear explosion, in the U.S., would mean to those in power?
1. There would be an immediate declaration of Marshall law.
(Government controlling your every move)
2. The Presidential election would be ‘suspended’ until the current government felt it was ‘safe’ to hold them which could take years.
3. An attempt to confiscate all ‘firearms’ would be ordered for the ‘good’ of the people.
I’m sure there would be many more ‘safety’ concerns that would be addressed for the good of the country.../s
Pakistan has not figured out how to down-size their weapons to make them portable by air.
The great risk is the sale of weapons grade uranium to say Burma or Iran if they get cash strapped.
That is Pakistan's "hostage" that will keep our blood money flowing to Pakistan.
It’s gonna happen sooner or later.
The USA will be attacked with nuclear weapons.
There are just too many enemies out there with access to nukes.
Makes me glad that I live in “Mayberry.”
They would have to be awfully desperate to use a nuke on this little place.
Unless its near one of our so called “undisclosed locations” that seem to be disclosed all the time???
