Petraeus Warns US Against Attack On Pakistani Tribesmen

The News

KABUL/RAWALPINDI: ISAF Commander in Afghanistan Gen David Petraeus apprising the US government of severe protest by the Pakistani Army leadership over the Dattakhel drone attack in which 44 people lost their lives, has demanded that in future such attacks that target tribesmen should be avoided otherwise the cooperation of the Pakistan Army with respect to the war on terror would end.

Defence sources told Online that Gen Petraeus contacted the senior Pakistan Army leadership and had to face a tough reaction.

It was made clear to him that innocent people and tribesmen were targeted in the drone attacks. These people had always cooperated with the Pakistan Army against the terrorists. The drone attack not only damaged the Pakistan Army but also benefited the terrorists. 

Sources further said that the Pakistan Army made it clear that prior to launching such attacks the US should make its intelligence and targets more credible and should stop attacks on the information of local agents who could be supporting the terrorists. Gen Petraeus expressed his regret over the incident.

However, so far the Pentagon or US State Department have not formally apologised or even regretted the attack on innocent people.

Due to this cold attitude of the US, the Army leadership is fuming and has communicated its anger to the US through back door channels.

On the other hand the Pakistan government is also silent after condemning the incident and has not formally asked the US to apologise for the same.
