(NEW YORK) — Pakistan is denying U.S. investigators access to Osama bin Laden’s compound and the wives who lived there with him, a rebuke to the U.S. that is escalating tensions between the two allies in the wake of the raid that killed the al Qaeda leader.Pakistan’s prime minister on Monday spoke publicly for the first time since the operation about the raid and rejected accusations that Pakistani officials aided bin Laden, who had been hiding in Pakistan for several years. In a speech to the parliament, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani denied that officials were incompetent in searching for bin Laden or complicit in hiding him, a suggestion CIA chief Leon Panetta repeatedly made to lawmakers last week. Gilani added that Pakistani officials will investigate why bin Laden went undetected while hiding virtually in plain sight in a military town, and criticized the United States for not sharing information of the mission beforehand. Gaining access to bin Laden’s compounds and his wives are among the United States’ key demands to Pakistan and officials say the denial is another disappointment from Pakistan. Pakistanis have in custody three of bin Laden’s wives, eight of his children and five other children, according to a senior Pakistani military official. The CIA is pouring through the trove of information seized at bin Laden’s compound, which is enough information to fill the library of a small college, officials say. Among the mysteries they are hoping to uncover is what the Pakistani government knew and did not know.
