Following the military raid on the Bin Laden compound in 2011, the Pakistani government set up a commission of inquiry to find out exactly what happened, if there were any lapses in leadership, and what follow-on actions should be taken.
Today, Al Jazeera published the exclusive report from the "Abottobad Commission," which performed the investigation.
Inside their report were many interesting details, but we've managed to get it down to just five.
Bin Laden was once stopped by a cop for speeding in 2002, but nothing happened.
From the report:
"Maryam, of course had no occasion to speak to the tall Arab [bin Laden]. Once they were all (including the tall Arab) on a visit to the bazaar they were stopped for speeding by a policeman. But her husband very quickly settled the matter with the policeman and they drove on."
Bin Laden was a devoted dad.
From the report:
"The children of the OBL family led extremely regimented and secluded lives. OBL personally saw to the religious education of his grandchildren and supervised their play time, which included cultivating vegetable plots with simple prizes for best performances ... "
" ... [Navy SEALs] also took a purse that contained the will of OBL. Kairriyyeh had previously read the will but did not wish to divulge the details. She said it was not political and pertained only to personal and family related matters. Other reports suggested that the will said his children should not seek leadership of Al Qaeda ... "

No wonder the followers put him out to pasture and then leaked his location. He was a looney!
What concerns me more is this — the Pakistanis (our purported ally, to whom we send billions of dollars in military and economic aid), LET THIS MAN GO !!
How many of us really believe that the Pakistani government did not know his whereabouts?
Pakistani ISI was probably all over that cop like the FBI would when a mobster in witness protection gets caught by a local police department for a petty crime.
Osama bin Laden is/was the most successful patsy for Empire building in the grand and glorious history of patsy’s and Empires. The FBI will have to work extra long hours to develop any patsy as useful as the CIA’s OBL or the KGB’s BHO. I wonder whose patsy was GWB?
Within days of 9-11 I had Indian business contacts telling me the Pakis were going to do exactly that.
