Our nation friend Pakistan evidently built bin Laden a swaggerific mansion and kept him in bidness, just in the name of altruism, I guess. As Andrew Gold sang, “Thank you for being a friend, Pakistan. Now go out and build some more terrorist hidey-holes, you big lug, you!”
Sources tell ABC News that administration officials believe Osama bin Laden had been living at the Abbottabad, Pakistan compound for years, with one senior administration source even suggesting the compound was specifically built in 2005 for the al Qaeda leader.
That this compound was constructed in the neighborhood of former Pakistani military officials and a local military academy is of course calling into question the participation of the local – if not national – government.
