Pakistan had been told a long while ago that basically, "we will go after OBL wherever he is, and if he's in your territory so be it."

Right, that was what he ve-e-ery carefully and specifically said in his address. As opposed to anything that denotes that we asked permission from or provided notification to Pakistan regarding this specific operation.

I'm not criticizing. If you ask me, it's pretty rock 'n roll.

given what's been coming out about the location and visibility of the compound, it's hard not to conclude that Pakistan built it for him.

Yeah. Shocker. I'm not saying they didn't have a neat and tidy little invasion coming, just that it takes some balls to completely blow off the diplomatic pseudoreality of our "ally" status with Pakistan and go for it. (And some moxie to do so whilst apparently causing only the merest flutter in said diplomatic pseudoreality.)
