Obama Warns Pakistan on Terrorism
    #7247637 - 08/01/07 03:38 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Wednesday that he would send troops into Pakistan to hunt down terrorists even without local permission if warranted -- an attempt to show strength when his chief rival has described his foreign policy skills as naive.

The Illinois senator warned Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf that he must do more to shut down terrorist operations in his country and evict foreign fighters under an Obama presidency, or Pakistan will risk a U.S. troop invasion and losing hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. military aid.

''Let me make this clear,'' Obama said in a speech at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. ''There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al-Qaida leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will.''

Obama's speech comes the week after his rivalry with New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton erupted into a public fight over their diplomatic intentions.

Obama said he would be willing to meet leaders of rogue states like Cuba, North Korea and Iran without conditions, an idea that Clinton criticized as irresponsible and naive. Obama responded by using the same words to describe Clinton's vote to authorize the Iraq war and called her ''Bush-Cheney lite.''

Thousands of Taliban fighters are based in Pakistan's vast and jagged mountains, where they can pass into Afghanistan, train for suicide operations and find refuge from local tribesmen. Intelligence experts warn that al-Qaida could be rebuilding here to mount another attack on the United States.

Musharraf has been a key ally of Washington in fighting terrorism since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, but has faced accusations from some quarters in Pakistan of being too closely tied to America.

The Bush administration has supported Musharraf and stressed the need to cooperate with Pakistan, but lately administration officials have suggested the possibility of military strikes to deal with al-Qaida and its leader, Osama bin Laden.

Analysts say an invasion could risk destabilizing Pakistan, breeding more militancy and undermining Musharraf. The Pakistani Foreign Office, protective of its national sovereignty, has warned that U.S. military action would violate international law and be deeply resented.

A military invasion could be risky, given Pakistan's hostile terrain and the suspicion of its warrior-minded tribesmen against uninvited outsiders.


Congress passed legislation Friday that would tie aid from the United States to Islamabad's efforts to stop al-Qaida and the Taliban from operating in its territory. President Bush has yet to sign it.

Obama's speech was a condemnation of President Bush's leadership in the war on terror. He said the focus on Iraq has left Americans in more danger than before Sept. 11, and that Bush has misrepresented the enemy as Iraqis who are fighting a civil war instead of the terrorists responsible for the attacks six years ago.

''He confuses our mission,'' Obama said, then he spread responsibility to lawmakers like Clinton who voted for the invasion. ''By refusing to end the war in Iraq, President Bush is giving the terrorists what they really want, and what the Congress voted to give them in 2002: a U.S. occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.''

Obama said that as commander in chief he would remove troops from Iraq and putting them ''on the right battlefield in Afghanistan and Pakistan.'' He said he would send at least two more brigades to Afghanistan and increase nonmilitary aid to the country by $1 billion.

He also said he would create a three-year, $5 billion program to share intelligence with allies worldwide to take out terrorist networks from Indonesia to Africa.

lol no, its the backbone government telling them what to say. THEY ARE JUST FACES.

The only people who can make a difference in our lives are candidates that are NOT backed by a party. The problem is if your not backed by a party your ass doesn't have a chance in hell.

and if by some "small" chance they do get into the white house they won't be living for very long.

the government is currupt from the ground up, we are born into a world without knowledge of how it once was because even our history books are currupt.

but as ive said before clinton is an idiot based on what she has done in her career.

right now, we don't know WHO THE FUCK bombed the trade centers....yet in our history books it will be written that iraq did it or something along those lines.

we are heading to the next big war and we can't stop it. I'm wearing my tinfoil hat proudly on this one but it won't help me or anyone else. Its just surprising to see these candidates talk about invading another country when nobody wants it.
