Osama had a "support network" in Pakistan but it is not clear if the Pakistani government was involved, US President Barack Obama said in his first public comments on the issue. "We think that there had to be some sort of support network for bin Laden inside of Pakistan," Obama told the CBS show "60 Minutes."

"But we don't know who or what that support network was. We don't know whether there might have been some people inside of government, people outside of government, and that's something that we have to investigate and, more importantly, the Pakistani government has to investigate."

"But these are questions that we're not going to be able to answer three or four days. It's going to take some time for us to be able to exploit the intelligence gathered."
