    Interesting photos. Pakistani officials claimed that they raided the joint in 2003. The Pics says there was no joint.

      Good point. I’ve put together a complete sequence of aerial and satellite photos on one page here.

      Assuming the DoD date is correct the compound was built sometime between 2004 and 2005
