Pakistan Rejects U.S. Criticism - WSJ.com

Pakistan Rejects U.S. Criticism - WSJ.com

Pakistan's army chief and a top diplomat warned against a repeat of this week's U.S. raid against Osama bin Laden, strongly suggesting American forces could next time face military resistance and see its intelligence cooperation with Pakistan sharply curtailed—a development that would threaten the Afghan war effort and global counter-terrorism operations.

Salman Bashir, the country's foreign secretary, said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that a repeat of Monday's raid could lead to "terrible consequences." Pakistani and U.S. officials have said Pakistan was not told about the attack that killed bin Laden until after the fact, which has led to Pakistani protests that their sovereignty was violated.
