On May 2, 2011 the world was change by the death of Osama Bin Laden. This was the result of a United States Military invasion into Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound. As happy as the U.S. was about the death of the person that was a major part of the 9/11 attacks the Pakistani, however, was not happy at all. The reason behind this anger was because the U.S. had not notify the Pakistani government, while the U.S. and Pakistan were somewhat allies on the subject of killing Osama Bin Laden. Some the the people in Pakistan where also upset by this fact. This is a little understandable but the fact supporting why I think the U.S. did this justify their actions.
The government had no idea that Bin Laden’s compound was about 40 miles away. His compound was also right next to a military training center. This is careless and could put the mission in danger, because any U.S. military personnel that went to the capital of Pakistan would have probably been seen by Bin Laden’s people.
Also, the mission needed to quick so taking the time to translate the message to the Pakistani government. This mission, once all planned out, needed to be acted on and trying to get two sets of soldiers to do the mission would have taken to long. This also may have compromised the mission.
I understand the frustration with the lack of communication. But if was the difference between getting Bin Laden or not I think that all the people of Pakistan,even the government could forgive the U.S.
