One outcome of the U.S. operation against bin Laden was that three bin Laden widows were taken into Pakistani custody, not incidentally freeing them from a horrifyingly restricted life lived in full “purdah”.
U.S. officials have requested access to bin Laden’s widows for the purpose of questioning them for relevant information they may have on terrorist operations. Pakistani officials reportedly continue to withhold access, and also have refused to share the women’s interrogation reports. There are arguments to be made both in support of the U.S. request and in opposition to it. Please give us your opinion here.
