Pakistan’s Parliament Condemns Raid That Killed Bin Laden
The Pakistanis are apparently still a bit upset about that whole killing bin Laden thing:
Pakistan’s parliament threatened Saturday to cut off access to a facility used by NATO forces to ferry troops into Afghanistan, signaling a growing rift that began when U.S. commandos killed Osama bin Laden during a raid on a Pakistani compound.
A resolution adopted during a joint session of parliament condemned the U.S. action. It also called for a review of its working agreement with the U.S., demanded an independent investigation and ordered the immediate end of drone attacks along its border region.
Failure to end unilateral U.S. raids and drone attacks will force Pakistan to “to consider taking necessary steps, including withdrawal of (the) transit facility” used by the NATO’s International Security Assistance Force, according to the resolution.
This seems like mostly posturing on the part of the Pakistani Parliament, but it’s a pretty clear that there’s been some damage to U.S.-Pakistani relations as a result of this raid.
