This blog vented last week on Pakistan’s misplaced priorities in accounting for how Osama Bin Laden ended up in the cantonment town of Abbotabad. The farce continues. Now Osama Bin Laden’s widows and two of his adult daughters (who have been in custody since last May and formally arrested March 3) have been sentenced to 45 days in prison (with credit for time served) and fined about $110 each. The crime? Illegally entering Pakistan. After serving their sentences the women, and presumably their progeny, will be deported to their home countries.
No news on whether Pakistan’s crack investigative teams have come up with an explanation on how the women ended up in Abbotabad to begin with. The Pakistan farce continues.
