1. Lawrence Wright on the role of the Pakistani government: "I’m not surprised to learn that he was essentially sheltered by Pakistani intelligence and military units. I do make that assumption. I feel that for years, the Pakistani military and intelligence complex has been in the ‘looking for bin Laden’ business. He was a priceless asset to them because we poured billions of dollars into their pockets to try to find him. If they found him, they’d be out of business. So he was an irreplaceable asset and I think that Pakistan has a lot to answer for. This looks very incriminating. … This gives us an opportunity to reassess exactly what our relationship with Pakistan ought to be." View in High-Res
