Pakistani Newspapers Accuse U.S. Of Targeting Pakistan

In recent days, Pakistani newspapers have accused the U.S. of beginning to target Pakistan in its War on Terror. In an April 14, 2008 editorial, the right-wing Pakistan daily Roznama Nawa-i-Waqt accused U.S. President George W. Bush of "directly targeting" Pakistan, and said that the U.S. was giving Pakistan priority even over Iran on its list of military targets. The Islamist paper Roznama Jasarat wrote in an editorial, also on April 14, 2008, that the threat of a U.S. attack on Pakistan has arrived, and that the roots of the internal and external dangers currently facing Pakistan lie in its role as the ally of the U.S. in the War on Terror. Also, the Peshawar-based Urdu-language newspaper Roznama Mashriq accused the U.S. of spreading unjustified anti-Pakistan propaganda. All these editorials came in response to statements attributed to George W. Bush in an interview with ABC News, regarding the possibility of a 9/11-like attack on the U.S. being planned on Pakistani soil. [1] The following are excerpts from the three editorials.
