PAKPAC Congratulates President Obama


Washington, DC: “PAKPAC congratulates the Obama administration and our men and women in uniform for successfully carrying out an operation against Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden’s attack on 9/11 defined the previous decade - and our entire approach to national security. Bin Laden’s abhorrent and heinous acts of terrorism led to wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and many other covert operations around the world. These wars cost the lives of countless American soldiers, and scores of civilians of all nationalities and faiths. His death is a victory for the civilized world,” says a PAKPAC statement. It adds:

“We have not yet defeated terrorism and its ideology, but today marks a significant step forward… PAKPAC agrees with President Obama when he stated that the ‘..US is not, and never will be, at war with Islam... bin Laden was not a Muslim leader, he was a mass-murderer of Muslims,’ and, “it is important to note that our counterterrorism cooperation with Pakistan led to his capture.’ PAKPAC hopes for continued cooperation between Pakistan and US Governments.

“Now with the Arab awakening, and democracy taking hold in the Middle East, PAKPAC is confident that Al-Qaeda and its ideology will be relegated to the dust bin of history. “

“Today, we remember the 3000 men and women who lost their lives on 9/11. Today, their souls have a measure of justice. Today, no matter our political leanings, we are all Americans, united, as one nation.”
