(David Schultz, WAMU, Alex Goldmark, Transportation Nation) D.C. bikeshare trips spiked more than five-fold last night as residents converged on the White House to celebrate the death of Osama bin Laden. Bikeshare helped swell the crowd size.

From 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., riders took 558 trips on Capital Bikeshare. During a similar time period last week, they took only 105 trips.

John Lisle of the District Department Of Transportation tells Transportation Nation that, as of 1 p.m., fewer than a dozen bikes remained unreturned. Nothing to be alarmed or worried about, he says. Bikeshare members have up to 24 hours to return a bike before it is considered stolen.

Greater Greater Washington posted links to a few bike tracking apps that let you see from where the bikes were checked out and when.

After Bin Laden Raid, Lingering Questions About Pakistan

Monday, May 02, 2011

The U.S. has known for a long time that Pakistan is playing a double game, but the U.S. doesn't have many options. We play the cards we're dealt. The ISI has very different priorities from the U.S., and the tricky game the CIA had to play is to try and get little pieces of genuine information in middle of a lot of fake information.
