Wikileaks: Pakistan intelligence was in regular contact with bin Laden

The Wikileaks Stratfor email dump is telling us what most (if not all) suspected all along. The US is in a bad position if they’re counting on any cooperation from Pakistan. The Telegraph:

According to one of the e-mails, the firm was shown the information papers collected from bin Laden’s Abbotabad compound after the US special forces attack last May that resulted in his death. The e-mail, from a Stratfor analyst, suggested that up to 12 officials in Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency knew of the al-Qaeda leader’s safe house. The internal email did not name the Pakistani officials involved but said the US could use the information as a bargaining chip in post raid negotiations with Islamabad.
