Very pertinent to South Asian politics as it marks a shift within Congress in attitudes towards Pakistan, but.. the arguments over OBL have been been re-repeated every 10 pages.. Agnostic Muslim continues to convince us over his word than the DoD and Panetti. It'd do us better to speculate on the regional fall-out and geopolitical impact of Osamas death, and more importantly U.S reactions to Pakistan which I believe are critical to the stability of the M.EPlease do not make it another India Pakistan thread. This is about OBL. Lets stick to that.
Does the U.S support Pakistan until withdrawal? Or continue to support them post-withdrawal despite the clear malcontent felt from both sides over the issue, (Pakistani public and.. AM would have us believe, intelligentsia, and Congress/U.S public). This is a big moment, because it could represent a foreign policy shift. Examining it in the wider context would be good.
