CNN reports on the plight of Osama bin Laden’s widows:

Pakistani authorities have started legal proceedings against the widows of former al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden for allegedly entering Pakistan illegally and alleged forgery, Pakistan’s interior minister told reporters Thursday.

The widows are in the custody of Pakistani authorities, Minister Rehman Malik said.

Last year, Pakistan told U.S. officials that three wives of bin Laden, who was killed in Pakistan by U.S. forces last year, were living in the country.

Malik said two of bin Laden’s widows have been detained. The status of the third widow, who authorities reported last year was also residing in Pakistan, was not immediately clear Thursday.

“Their entry into Pakistan was illegal,” Malik said. “They also did not inform the authorities that they were living here.

“And there were many other incidents where deception and forgery was committed,” Malik told reporters.

These are crimes in Pakistan? In America, the political class calls these acts “living in the shadows” and we abrogate the rule of law to accommodate the millions who do them. We give them free access to our schools and hospitals and call each other names for objecting.
