Pakistani PM: World “Intelligence Failure” on Bin Laden

Via the BBC:  World ‘failed to track’ Bin Laden

Pakistan’s prime minister says spy agencies worldwide share the blame for his country’s failure to capture Osama Bin Laden, who was killed by US forces.

"We have intelligence failure of the rest of the world including the United States," PM Yousuf Raza Gilani said.

Pakistan has been criticised for not locating Bin Laden, who was living near the country’s main military academy.

This reminds me very much of a conversation I had with one of my kid’s this morning.  As I was pointing out his malfeasance in a certain matter he wanted to talk about his brothers’ failings.

When criticized:  deflect!
