There is much outrage in Pakistan over a NATO air strike yesterday which took the lives of 24 Pakistani soldiers. Pakistan claims the attacks were unprovoked and has closed off its western border to trucks delivering food and fuel supplies to U.S. and Coalition troops in Afghanistan. It is also demanding the U.S. leave an air base in Pakistan where drones are serviced within two weeks.
But when it comes to Pakistan things are never simple and straightforward. For its part, Afghanistan claims that Pakistan was firing upon Afghan and NATO forces near the Afghan-Pakistan border. Now there is no love lost between Afghanistan and Pakistan but the NATO countries in question can certainly confirm or deny what Afghanistan is asserting.
Both the U.S. & NATO will conduct separate investigations of the incident. But given Pakistan’s history of being less than forthcoming with us where it concerned Osama bin Laden and other matters I don’t think Hillary Clinton or NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen should be apologizing to Pakistan for anything unless their investigations can substantiate Pakistan’s claims.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
