Nat,
He was living in a compound in the town that is the site of one of Pakistan's largest military bases. Given that fact that Pakistan is a military dictatorship, there is zero chance they didn't know he was there. There was constant courier service coming and going for Pete's sake. Even the local kids knew there was someone powerful and very strange living there. They couldn't even get their soccer balls returned when they went over the fence. You think no parents ever complained to the local government or the police about that behavior?

I was in the military myself. I live in the city of the largest naval base on the Planet. If OBL was in my city no one would be the wiser because he did not leave the house. Therefore, no one seen him go in and no one seen him come out

Nat,
You don't live in a military dictatorship.

The hell I don't. Do you know what the hell the pentagon is? Is our president the only one who is commander and chief?

Nat says:
have taken place in the framework of a federal republic, where the system of government has at times been parliamentary, presidential, or semi-presidential. In the current parliamentary system, the President of Pakistan is the largely ceremonial head of state, the Prime Minister is head of government, and there is a multi-party system. Executive power is exercised by the government. Legislative power is largely vested in the Parliament.

No matter if you call it congress or Parliament we have very similar government system.

Nat,
Unless you are in the military, or a dependant, the DOD has no control over your life. In Pakistan the military has control over everything to a greater or lesser degree. The fact that the Pakistani Intelligence Bureau actively funds Al Queda and the Taliban and operates training bases for both should give you an idea of how tight the ties are between them.

BPL: In PAKISTAN? In countries like that, people stay the hell away from the police and the military whenever they can.

BPL: Hate to agree with RMS on anything, but he's right on this point. Pakistan's ISI is Islamist through and through, and even the civilian government is afraid to cross them. They are responsible for many of the terrorist attacks of the past 20 years, though they almost always work through local proxies.

Question: Didn't Zia al Huk kind of gut the parliamentary system and set Pakistan up to be as Islamist as possible?

ISI is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the CIA.

Other than that, you were dead-nuts on the money, BPL.

BPL: I really don't agree. CIA and ISI agents spend a lot of time trying to kill each other. Trust me on this one.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. You have *earned* that here, my friend.

MisterTee,
Not hardly, the ISI is totally anti-American, and pro jihadi.

Government wants to take from the people, but this is why we have no money, not the programs to help our people .

You took it the wrong way. He said that 40,000 years ago homo sapiens were mere hunter gatherers which is factually untrue. There is no difference between native americans and the homo sapien species.

Yeah, and I'm starting to suspect there was a previous advanced culture here on planet Earth.

Have you heard of Punu Punkhu (SP?) ?

Nat says:
Yup little by little more evidence of a previous civilization up to par with ours all the time lately. My guess is the Ice age was practically an E.L.E and I suspect atlantis was actually Antarctica

Hard to say, but it's pretty clear the Sphinx is at least 12,000 years old.

There are several thousand years of water erosion on it's body.

And the body was carved from the living bedrock around its gorge... so there's no arguing about the date of origin.
