Instead, the world's most wanted man was living comfortably in a million-dollar compound in Abbottabad, an affluent town that retired Pakistani military officers call home. Could the Pakistanis have been oblivious to bin Laden's presence in a conspicuous home only sixty miles from Islamabad? Did they cooperate with the operation to kill bin Laden? Will the killing of bin Laden strain the US-Pakistani relationship further?
