Secret bin Laden Report Blasts Pakistan Intelligence Service
Supporters of pro-Taliban party Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam display a portrait of slain al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden as they shout slogans during a rally in Quetta, Pakistan, on the second anniversary of the terrorist leader's death, May 2, 2013.

A recently leaked report provides the Pakistani government's most thorough look at how Osama bin Laden was able to live in Pakistan undetected for years and how the U.S. military was able to carry out — also undetected — a successful raid that killed the world’s most notorious terrorist. Both have implications for Pakistan’s politics as well as its relationship with the United States.
The report is harshly critical of the U.S. government, but most of its ire is directed against Pakistan’s powerful Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) organization and its military. But despite a lengthy and detailed investigation, the report fails to answer basic questions that go to the heart of Pakistan’s reliability as a partner in fighting terrorism.
