No shit?

Osama bin Laden is living comfortably in northwest Pakistan, protected by local tribespeople and some members of the country's intelligence service, a NATO official has told CNN. The news undercuts the U.S. government's depiction of the al-Qaida leader as on the run, one terror expert tells The Upshot.
U.S. intelligence officials have long believed that bin Laden is living in the remote tribal region of northwest Pakistan. But at times, the government has also claimed that the al-Qaida leader has had to move frequently from one safehouse to another, impairing his ability to plot attacks.
The NATO official's comments undermine that claim, Michael Scheuer, a former special adviser to the chief of the CIA's bin Laden unit, told The Upshot. "It exposes the lie that Bush and Obama have been telling us since 9/11, that he was running from rock to rock and cave to cave," Scheuer said.

Did anybody believe that he was actually hiding? He's a muslim. They're muslims. What's their famous saying?
"The enemy of my enemy is my friend."
Yeah, that one.
Keep overflying Pakistan with drones, keep dropping missiles in there and making life unpredictable for them. Even if the Pakistanis don't get serious about giving him up, it'll damn sure let them know we haven't forgotten nor have we forgave.
