Rumsfeld on bin Laden death: 'It is a good day for America that he is gone.'

Osama bin Laden's compound was in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Did the Pakistanis know? What does this mean for U.S. relations with Pakistan? Should U.S. troops begin an immediate pullout from Afghanistan? Former defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld responds to the killing of Osama Bin Laden, crediting good intelligence for the successful operation.

    Pakistan absolutely cannot be trusted. Wile Bin Laden was alive it was worth multi billions of dollars to Paksitan to actually keep bin Laden alive. I would not be surprised to learn that the complex was built for Bin Laden to keep him alive and the US dollars flowing in. It is time to reassess the mission in Afghanistan and Pakistan, mission has been accomplished. What is it that we want to accomplish there now that target one has been destroyed? What a great opportunity to help our own economy and bring our heros home where they should be. If we feel the Pakistani's and Afghans need help let it be done through Christian charities supported by volunteer contributions and not through our Government's budget.
