    How many of those targets were 1) Pak government targets and 2) without at least some kind of cooperation from the Pakis?

    Read the articles - the Pakistani government was saying stop the drone bombings, they did not know the drones were coming, etc. The last article is from Al Jazeera (the Middle East leading news outlet) about Pakistan asking the US to stop.

    We were attacking AQ targets, not Paki targets. If the Paks have a problem with that, then ****'em. I say that we need to bomb the presidential palace in retaliation for the embassy bombing.

    So if Mexico decides to bomb on a home in a south Texas neighborhood because they believe the leader of a murderous drug cartel is the house and - whoops - also blows up the houses on each side killing US citizens, you are going to be fine with it?

    I would expect the U.S. to actually WORK together with the Mexicans to get the job done rather than provide assistance and refuge for the drug cartel. Is it too much to actually expect the Pakistani government to provide support and assistance to knock out a terrorist organization receiving refuge in its borders?

    HOWEVER


    they're a nuclear country. and if we don't prop up the current government, there's a real possibility that the radicals will get ahold of those nukes (unless we and the Israelis are willing to preemptively launch a massive aerial and missile assault to destroy the facilities).


    so, take your pick. either we're f****d, or we're F****D.

    Re: Pakistan spy agency accused of directing attacks against US targets

    It's likely that the ISI intentionally provided support for the terrorist groups, instead of some loopholes. Create a terror, an enemy, and then voila, you have aid from the US. Typical terror manipulation. The only thing different is that the ISI either did it horribly, or the US is really bothered by that and decided to do something about that.

    I'm not surprised. Come on now, no "Ally" harbors his friends enemies. The sadder part is that the CIA thinks we (USA) are good with Pakistan. Apparently we are so arrogant that we can't tell our friends from out enemies, or that we would even care.

    Despite what you think, the intelligence community aren't dumb as you portray them.
    Many people always accuse the intelligence community of being incompetent, stupid, and making too much errors, as if they can do a better job. If the intelligence community failed, then the US would have collapsed by now.
    The people working for intelligence know what they're doing, they have years of experience, they know more than what the idiotic media can show, which is only a fraction of what happens
