The OBL commission report from Pakistan

I believe that very few people know that after the U.S. conducted raid in Pakistan on the night of May 02, 2011, Pakistani government set up a commission to investigate how Osama Bin Laden (OBL) came to live in Pakistan and the events leading up to his killing at the hands of Navy Seals (the U.S. Special Ops team) on May 02, 2011. Well it was completed in January of this year and the previous government got it in their hands but as all things should stay hidden in Pakistan so that nobody knows what happened at a particular event it was never made public and the new government which came in June also sat on the report until it was leaked (?) to the Arab news channel Al-Jazeera which published the whole report on its website and then that website was mysteriously blocked in Pakistan, but not before the contents were already made unofficially public. I have not read the whole report but some of the details which have been published is a fascinating read on the state of the Pakistan Politics and Military and instead of focusing on the recommendations of the report, there is now an investigation of how the report was leaked in the first place. From this you can see the priorities that are in place for the Pakistani state and its government and people. And this leaked report has been the hottest topic to hit the Pakistani nation in recent years (until something else comes along the way).
