THE SILENCE SPEAKS VOLUMES:

Bush, Pakistani PM hold 'wide-ranging' talks: Meeting follows deadly Pakistan-Afghan border attack (AP, 1/24/06)

After President Bush held a "wide-ranging discussion" with Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz at the White House Tuesday, the two leaders did not comment on a deadly U.S. airstrike that has strained relations between the two countries.

The Oval Office visit comes as many in the Islamic nation are blasting the United States for a January 13 airstrike in a remote area near the Afghan border that killed at least 13 civilians, including women and children.

"We have just had a wide-ranging discussion," Bush said during a photo opportunity, "which one should expect when we've got a strategic relationship like we have with Pakistan."

"The relationship with Pakistan is a vital relationship for the United States," Bush said. "I want to thank the prime minister and thank the president for working closely with us on a variety of issues. We're working closely to defeat the terrorists that would like to harm America and harm Pakistan."

Bush announced that he would visit Pakistan and India in March.


Nods and winks are silent.

If we had informed them, some one in their government would have informed the terrorists.

It seems the anti-American left is more upset about this than the Pakistani government. Well, well, well.
