Round Up the Usual Suspects


Pakistan has been complaining about the surprise attack that took out Osama bin Laden last weekend, but today they suddenly declared themselves ready to handle the “second phase” of the operation.  As reported by Fox News, “Pakistani security forces have arrested 40 people in Abbottabad suspected of having connections to Osama bin Laden.”

I don’t know if anyone in the Pakistani intelligence service had the sense of humor to actually say “Round up the usual suspects!” but this feels an awful lot like that.  Maybe impatient tapping of Uncle Sam’s foot is making the Pakistani government nervous.

We’ll have to see if any more details about those arrested, and the precise charges filed against them, are released by the Pakistani intelligence service.
