Good News! Pakistan Arrests C.I.A. Informants in Bin Laden Raid

How in the hell did the ISI find out who these informants were? Was it through our intelligence sharing?

This really sux.

WASHINGTON ó Pakistanís top military spy agency has arrested some of the Pakistani informants who fed information to the Central Intelligence Agency in the months leading up to the raid that led to the death of Osama bin Laden, according to American officials.

Pakistanís detention of five C.I.A. informants, including a Pakistani Army major who officials said copied the license plates of cars visiting Bin Ladenís compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, in the weeks before the raid, is the latest evidence of the fractured relationship between the United States and Pakistan. It comes at a time when the Obama administration is seeking Pakistanís support in brokering an endgame in the war in neighboring Afghanistan.

ISI is corrupt AND wants to stay that way. These informants pose a danger to them.
