Findings: Pakistan's Abbottabad Commission Report

"It is clear that someone from the civil administration, police, security and intelligence services should have noticed, but did not notice, anything odd about the Compound over so many years.

The extent of incompetence, to put it mildly, was astounding, if no unbelievable," the Abbottabad Commission report stated.
