So where are all the protests over the killing of bin Laden? The Hamas boss in Gaza seems to have complained; that’s about it as far as protests from Arab leaders are concerned. And I can’t find any reports of public protests except for one in Quetta, the Taliban’s hometown.
And the sovereign government of Pakistan, whose territory was violated? President Zardari is claiming that the Pakistani government helped by providing intelligence; not a word of complaint about the incursion. Of course, I don’t believe for a second that elements of the military and the ISI didn’t know perfectly well who was occupying a mansion in a military-dominated area that had no phone line and admitted no visitors. But for public consumption Zardari’s stance is strictly anti-al Qaeda.
Maybe Muslims aren’t really fans of mass murder after all. Someone tell the neocons.
