Acres of news space has been devoted to the finding and the ultimate killing of wanted fugitive and global terrorist, Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad in Pakistan. Everywhere the same question is being asked - how did the Pakistan security apparatus manage to keep the most wanted terrorist in safe haven in an area close to its capital hoodwinking seekers from the United States for nearly a decade.
