With Osama's mansion being so close to an Afgan base and the size of it. Did the Afgan government help hide Osama all these years?

You are forgetting that while you and some may consider Osama bin Laden a bad "terrorist" that needed to be killed, there are some people (myself included) who consider Osama bin Laden a Freedom Fighter pushed to edge by sadistic and noted world bullies such as the US government, British government, French government and their allies. "Terrorist" is very subjective! Nations and people are known to label as terrorist those who simply would not share their views. In the 1770s, North Americans resisting British impositions in America were called insurgents and terrorists by the British. Until the 1990s, Nelson Mandela was considered terrorist by British immigrants seeking to dictate to him in his homeland. I like what someone said regarding terrorism: "War is terrorism by the rich; (freedom fighting) is war by the poor."

Hello jyaegel and welco0me to myLot. The mansion you speak of is in Pakistan, not Afghanistan. I'm sure that the government knew that he was there. At least some one in the government knew it.
