Pakistan condemns unilateral U.S. action against bin Laden

Takes credit for helping to locate al-Qaeda leader


Facing internal criticism about the fact that a secret U.S. kill-mission was allowed to take place on Pakistani soil, Pakistan’s foreign ministry expressed “deep concern” over the operation on Tuesday. “This event of unauthorized unilateral action cannot be taken as a rule,” the foreign ministry said in a statement about the death of Osama Bin Laden. At the same time, Pakistan, a major recipient of U.S. aid, is taking credit for its role in the terrorist leader’s capture. The written statement claims that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) tipped-off the CIA about foreigners in Abbottabad in 2009.

Pakistan condemns unilateral U.S. action against bin Laden

  1. I'm a bit confused by Pakistan's alternating claims and complaints, but I'm not as confused as they are.

  2. They tipped the CIA in 2009. I guess they were not credited coz the tip was too small, eh! Typical pakistani mentality. They want! That is all. They WANT to take and receive everything they can. They DON'T WANT to give anything in return, especially to the infidels. They WANT to accuse the world for their problems. They DON'T WANT to help the world get rid of the problems created by pakistanis. They WANT to get credit for "helping" catch terrorists. They DON'T WANT anyone to actually catch the terrorists they are harbouring. They WANT everybody to accept them and sympathize with them. They DON'T WANT anybody who does not accept their ideology to live amongst them.

    They are amazing to say the least!! :@

  3. It is comforting to know that the last thing that registered in UBL's mind was a vision of the US military

    • Actually his first name is Osama. That would be OBL.

      • S4i7 spelt any other way still stinks.

      • For a while there, shortly after 9/11 I remember seeing both spellings, but Osama became far more common.

  4. Lucy's got some splanin' to do…

  5. What a great ally.

  6. From the looks of it, it seems like the Pakistani government had Osama bin Ladin safely hidden in a military compound for his own protection from the CIA, but looks can be deceiving, right?

  7. No one cares about Pakistan's complaints and congratulations to the U.S. for hunting and killing that pig but why are American, Canadian politicians, and Western politicians in general, still endangering their people by letting in thousand of dangerous radical Muslims through mass immigration every year? Who ever heard of open borders during a state of war? Why not make the security of the people a priority, instead of pleasing Saudi, Chinese and Mexican front organizations who lobby constantly for open immigration? It would be more useful that crocodile tears at ground zero.

  8. Actually, correctly, it's Usama, so the abbreviation would be UBL. However, it, incorrectly, became more commonly referred to as Osama. Just like the correct spelling of the terrorist organization is al-Qa'ida, it's most oft referred to as Al Qaeda or Al-Qaeda.
