In all seriousness, I am amazed that OBL's hide out was known since August and none of this came out in the New York Times or appeared in Wikileaks. We have the world's most porous and least disciplined government.
Everyone in the know on this was at best a few hundred disciplined and patriotic people from JSOC / CIA / NSA, plus a bare handful of scruffs at the White House.
Normally, they'd be leaking juicy Top Secret information faster than you could say, "Redistribute the wealth", but in this particular case, they had good reason to keep it quiet.
