Anyone who thinks Pakistan is not a threat should educate themselves.
Pakistan likely knew of Osama bin Laden
My assessment [Ö] was it is quite possible that they [the ISI] did not know but it was more probable that they did. And the idea was that at the right time, his location would be revealed. And the right time would have been, when you can get the necessary quid pro quo ó if you have someone like Osama bin Laden, you are not going to simply hand him over to the United States.
The implication here is that bin Laden would have been a bargaining chip in the complicated shadow war playing out in the region, as the United States struggled to tamp down a Taliban insurgency in neighboring Afghanistan. The ISI, of course, has played a double game for some time ó and is believed to have both helped engineer the creation of the Taliban as well as support other Islamist militant groups that target arch-rival India.
