In September 2010, the CIA concluded that the compound was custom-built to hide someone of significance, very likely bin Laden.Abbottabad is about 100 miles (160 km) from the Afghanistan border on the far eastern side of Pakistan (about 20 miles (32 km) from India).
A former CIA official involved in the manhunt told The Washington Post: "The place was three stories high, and you could watch it from a variety of angles." The CIA used a process called "red teaming" on the collected intelligence to independently review the circumstantial evidence and available facts of their case that bin Laden was living at the Abbottabad compound.

Obama, however, decided that the Pakistani government and military could not be trusted to maintain operational security for the operation against bin Laden.
"There was a real lack of confidence that the Pakistanis could keep this secret for more than a nanosecond," a senior adviser to the President told The New Yorker.
Obama met with the National Security Council on March 14 to review the options; he was concerned that the mission would be exposed and wanted to proceed quickly.
