These Al-Qaeda big boys are crafty devils, so you have to assume that they're always going to have a tunnel.
In fairness, the longest of several tunnels leading out of the stronghold was more than a mile. It would be hard to preclude the risk of your enemy escaping from any facility with unknown tunnels radiating over that kind of distance, particularly in that terrain. That doesn't make me feel any less sorry for the Pakistani grunt who has been fighting to capture these guys for the last five days.
