U.S. Admits Plans to Continue Strikes into Pakistan

February 12, 2009

Barack Obama's Defense Secretary Robert Gates admits the U.S. will continue to extend its war into Pakistan and said on January 27, "Both President Bush and President Obama have made it clear that we will go after al Qaeda wherever al Qaeda is and we will continue to pursue that."

The U.S. military is regularly extending the war into Pakistan and committing atrocities. Three days after Obama took office, he ordered missiles strikes into Pakistan which killed over 20 people. The U.S. has launched at least 30 missile strikes into Pakistan since August of last year.
