Pakistan Gives Weapons and Amnesty to Bin Laden

I imagine we can't do much about this. Pakistan has nukes and has a history of sharing nuclear technology. Further, Pakistan is one of our solid allies in the 'War On Terror'.



Update:
Bush: CIA kept terror suspects in secret prisons

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush on Wednesday for the first time acknowledged the use of secret CIA prisons outside U.S. borders to hold top suspects captured in the war on terrorism.


We've seen reports that Pakistan is one of the countries in which we keep these secret prisons. Further we've heard eyewitness accounts from Canadians and Australians that were renditioned there, telling us that they were systematically tortured.

Now it looks like we're going to try to get prisoners out of Pakistan, before Pakistan relseases them to the Taliban and Al Quaeda. What if Dictator Bush doesn't get his prisoners back?

Is the US experiencing a break with one of it's major allies in the war on terror? We've known that Pakistan has been privately allied with terrorist groups, that it has nuclear weapons, and that it has been sharing nuclear technology with rogue states. But as long as that was under the covers, we didn't seem to mind that Pakistan was on both sides of the 'War On Terror'.

Perhaps this latest episode will signal a shift in relations between Dictator Bush and his best buddy Dictator Musharraf?


Update:
What they meant to say was...

This is absolutely fabricated, absurd. I never said this," Maj Gen Shaukat Sultan told The Associated Press, referring to an ABC News broadcast aired hours earlier.

The ABC report cited Sultan as saying in a telephone interview that al-Qaida chief bin Laden "would not be taken into custody" if found, "as long as one is being like a peaceful citizen." Sultan's recorded comments were included in the report, but it was not immediately clear whether he understood that bin Laden was the specific subject of discussion at that point in the interview. Sultan told the AP by phone that "what they are saying on Osama is absolutely fabricated."

"Pakistan is committed to its policy on the war on terror, and Osama, caught anywhere in Pakistan, would be brought to justice," he said.
