Whether Pakistan had known about bin Laden's whereabouts remains a question. But the fact that we are even asking should help clarify one issue: Pakistan is an unreliable client state whose core national interest doesn't correspond to U.S. interests.
The administration's efforts to avert retaliation by bin Laden's supporters was probably just canceled out this morning when it was reported the commander of the SEAL unit embellished the mission's communications with: "For God and Country."
Amanpour alluded to a source who suggested bin Laden had stashed himself in a "nice comfortable villa" in Pakistan. Unfortunately, Real Time is a freewheeling panel show, so whatever significance the moment had was lost amid the crosstalk.
