Pakistan refusing to let US talk to bin Laden’s wives

From Slate:

The latest point of contention between the two nations is over access to three of Bin Laden’s wives. The three women were among 10 or so of the al-Qaida leader’s family members taken into custody by Pakistan after the raid that killed Bin Laden.

The U.S. is asking for the chance to interrogate the women, believing they may be able to provide crucial information about “the comings and goings of people who were aiding [Bin Laden],” the New York Times reported Monday. So far, Pakistan has refused, a move that isn’t helping quell speculation in Washington that Bin Laden may have had help from within the Pakistani government.
