Pakistan tipping off terrorists

Is anyone really surprised by this?

In another blow to Washington’s relationship with Pakistan, U.S. officials say Pakistan failed another test to prove it could be trusted to go after American enemies on its soil by intentionally or inadvertently tipping off militants at two more bomb-building factories in its tribal areas, giving the suspected terrorists time to flee.

[…]

In each case, within a day or so after sharing the information, they watched the militants depart, taking any weapons or bomb-making materials with them, just as militants had done the first two times. Only then, did they watch the Pakistani military visit each site, when the terror suspects and their wares were long gone, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss matters of intelligence.

This is my shocked face.

😐

Seriously, the most wanted man in the world built an armed compound next to their premier military academy, and we wonder if their military (at least) is in bed with the terrorists?
