What This Means for Pakistan

1. Pakistan's leaders have periodically denied that Bin Laden was in their country. So, very embarrassing. Not only was he in their country, but he was found in a city that is in some ways a military cantonment.
2. Pakistan intelligence apparently helped the the U.S. in this operation. This is a very good thing for U.S.-Pakistan relations. I say "apparently" because there are conflicting reports about this, and also legitimate questions to be raised about the ISI -- Pakistan's intelligence service -- and what it knows about al Qaeda's presence in Pakistan.
