Update: Pakistani Government Destroys Residence of Osama bin Laden

With little fanfare, the Pakistani government leveled the former three-level residence in Abbottabad (some 30 miles northeast of Islamabad) earlier today (February 25), rather than be forced into maintaining the late al-Qaeda leader's home as a tourist attraction.

COMMENT: The house legally belonged to a Pakistani who worked as bin Laden's courier and who was killed along with his brother in the May 2, 2011 raid by members of Seal Team 6.
