Who betrayed Bin Ladin?

I was reading an about how Alexander the Great built his power based on either co-opting local leaders or killing them

and it was talking about how he knew he had to do more than just march in, if the local leader fled he had to track him down and kill him and thus our drone attacks in Pakistan and so forth...

Anyway apparently this one guy who Alexander had a hard time tracking down was finally killed by his own wife whom he was in love with and it didn't say why.

But duh, it doesn't follow that she loved him in return enough to want to spend the rest of her life living on survival food (mice, bugs and so forth.

She probably had had her fill of living that way and wanted to go back to how she lived before, which brought me to Bin Ladin.

If you want to try to figure out who squealed on him you have to ask yourself a couple of questions

1 Who did he trust (who was in a position to betray that trust)
2 Who would benefit from him being dead?
3 Were they the same folks?

In other words it was either the Taliban who betrayed him to us or it was the Pakistanis who run the Taliban who turned him in to us in return for us leaving Afghanistan.

Whomever ends up with Afghanistan after we leave is the answer to either 1 or 2 or both. Everyone gets enough of what they want, everyone saves face. And the Pakistanis who run the Taliban even got to pin it on some guys they didn't like no doubt.

Of course these are just thoughts that come into ones head when one is stuck in the head and it is based on total boredom and logic so don't quote it because it is not Gospel, it isn't even gossip, it was probably just gas.
