Despite initial comments that the operation was a "joint partnership," the US has since announced that Pakistan was not involved, nor privy to prior knowledge about the raid.

On Tuesday, the Pakistani government called the bin Laden operation an "unauthorized unilateral action" and warned it "would not serve as a future precedent for any state, including the US."
The discovery that bin Laden was hiding in a city filled with military personnel has led to accusations that Pakistani intelligence was lax in its efforts to find bin Laden. Some Pakistan detractors have gone as far as accusing Pakistan's version of the CIA, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), of keeping him hidden.
