A roadside vendor sells newspapers with headlines about the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, in Lahore May 3, 2011. Pakistan's president acknowledged for the first time on Tuesday that his security forces were left out of a U.S. operation to kill bin Laden, but he did little to dispel questions over how the al Qaeda leader was able to live in comfort near Islamabad. The revelation that bin Laden had been holed up in a compound in the military garrison town of Abbottabad, possibly for years, prompted many U.S. lawmakers to demand a review of the billions of dollars in aid Washington gives to nuclear-armed Pakistan.
