A face palm doesn't seem to do this justice. Maybe a full on slap, targeted at the policeman who pulled over Osama fucking Bin Laden and let him go. According to testimony by the wife of one of Bin Laden's bodyguards, the man who spent more than 10 years on the FBI's most wanted list was in a car pulled over for speeding in "2002 or 2003" in Pakistan. She was unsure whether the cop was paid off or was simply a bumbling idiot, but her husband "quickly settled the matter" and the car went on its way. It would be nearly a decade before Bin Laden was finally found, and subsequently killed, in 2011. We knew that Pakistan did an awful job in trying to find Bin Laden, but damn, this seems especially egregious.
