****COPYRIGHT CLAIM****FILE - This is an undated file photo of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, in Afghanistan. Say you're sorry. That's what the Pakistani government says it wants from the United States in order to jump-start a number of initiatives between the two countries that would help the hunt for al Qaeda in Pakistan and smooth the end of the war in Afghanistan. Pakistan wants the U.S. to apologize for a border incident in November 2011 in which the U.S. killed 24 Pakistani troops in an airstrike. The Pakistanis have put the apology at the top of a long list of demands to address what they see as insults to national pride and sovereignty _ from the Navy SEAL raid onto Pakistani territory last year that killed Osama bin Laden to the steady U.S. drone strikes on Pakistani territory.

FILE - In this May 3, 2011 file photo, local residents gather outside a house, where al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was caught and killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan. After U.S. Navy SEALs killed Osama bin laden in Pakistan in May 2011, top CIA officials secretly told lawmakers that information gleaned from brutal interrogations played a key role in what was one of the spy agency’s greatest successes. CIA director Leon Panetta repeated that assertion in public, and it found its way into a critically acclaimed movie about the operation, Zero Dark Thirty, which depicts a detainee offering up the identity of bin Laden’s courier, Abu Ahmad al- Kuwaiti, after being tortured at a CIA “black site.” As it turned out, Bin Laden was living in al Kuwaiti’s walled family compound, so tracking the courier was the key to finding the al-Qaida leader.

FILE- In this May 14, 2014 file photo, a sign tracking the time Osama Bin Laden was at large is displayed at the National Sept. 11 Memorial Museum in New York. The museum is the latest in a series of memorials-as-museums that seek to honor the dead while presenting a full, fair history of the event that killed them. And the Sept. 11 museum strives to do that at ground zero while the attacks are still raw memories for many. (AP Photo)

A sign tracking the time Osama Bin Laden was at large is displayed at the National Sept. 11 Memorial Museum, Wednesday, May 14, 2014, in New York. The museum is a monument to how the Sept. 11 terror attacks shaped history, from its heart-wrenching artifacts to the underground space that houses them amid the remnants of the fallen twin towers' foundations. It also reflects the complexity of crafting a public understanding of the terrorist attacks and reconceiving ground zero. (AP Photo)

** FILE ** This undated file photo shows al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. At the center of a hotly disputed Senate torture report is America’s biggest counterterrorism success of all: the killing of Osama bin Laden. The still-classified, 6,200-page review concludes that waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods provided no key evidence in the hunt for bin Laden, according to congressional aides and outside experts familiar with the investigation. The CIA still disputes that conclusion. (AP Photo, File)
