American Special Forces on May 2, 2011, raided alleged OBL compound in Abbottabad and staged the drama of killing OBL. It was a breach of Pakistan’s sovereignty but sadly President Asif Ali Zardari’s article was published in Washington Post to endorse American action. The Prime Minister also congratulated the people on success of the operation and declared it a great victory in the war on terror. American raid, in fact, was a slap in the face of our defence capability and could have sparked violent reaction country wide, leading to destabiliing the country. Recently, Memogate issue also unmasked many faces who had collaborated with the enemy. We need to be on our guard against such forces.
