Pakistan -er- Skeptical of Obama's Invasion Plans

Pakistan accused Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama of 'sheer ignorance' for threatening to launch US military strikes against Al-Qaeda on Pakistani soil. Obama warned Wednesday that if he is elected president, he would order US forces to hit extremist targets on Pakistan’s frontier with Afghanistan if embattled military ruler President Pervez Musharraf failed to act.

'Such statements are being made out of sheer ignorance,' Pakistan’s Minister of State for Information, Tariq Azeem, told AFP. 'They are not fully apprised about the ground realities and not aware of the efforts by Pakistan.'
