According to a US official in Washington the Central Intelligence Agency CIA has no plan to suspend operations in Pakistan against terror suspects despite objections from leaders in Islamabad. Reported by AFP, Leon Panetta of the CIA told Pakistani intelligence officials last week that he has a duty to prevent attacks on the United States. He said it is the fundamental responsibility of CIA to protect the American people and it will not halt operations that support that objective. The drone attacks in the tribal areas of Pakistan are also a part of this strategy. In the light of the statement made by Leon Panetta it is something very much clear that there would be no change in the US drone strategy in near or far future. After the release of Raymond Davis it was a very common misunderstanding in Pakistan that the USA would be thankful and obliged by this kind favour. It was also foolishly expected that the cruel and brutal policies in Pakistan would turn into a sympathetic and cordial type of relationship. The people of Pakistan noticed a vivid increase not only in the number of drone attacks but also in other anti-Pakistan activities of the CIA. On 12th of this April, Leon Panetta and the ISI chief General Pasha held a meeting at the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The basic purpose behind this meeting was to put a check on CIA operatives in Pakistan and on the drone attacks but unfortunately the US authorities responded to that meeting in form of two more drone attacks that took lives of six so-called militants in the tribal areas of Pakistan. The attacks took place when the ISI Chief was still on his way back to Pakistan. In the name of the so-called American war on terrorism Pakistan has borne unbearable losses in form of precious lives, property, economy, law and order situation and above all in shape of irreparable psychological traumas. Suicide bombings, kidnapping by foreign-supported terrorists and American drone attacks are the factors that are adding to the misery of the common man. But the US policymakers have never recognized any of these sacrifices. The Western media, the Western think tanks and other stakeholders are always harping on the same string 'Do More Do More. They are always engaged in doing all possible effort to smear the image of Pakistan. It must be kept in mind that all roads leading to the peace and prosperity of this region pass through Pakistan. If USA truly desires for a long lasting peace in the region, it will have to review its policies regarding Pakistan before it is too late. The drones may one day turn the whole nation into Taliban.
