U.S. Gave List of Five Wanted Men To Pakistan

United States gave Islamabad a list of terrorist leaders it wants, officials said.
The list includes Osama bin Laden deputy Ayman al Zawahiri, along with Siraj Haqqani of the Haqqani network, Ilyas Kashmiri, the head of the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami and suspected al-Qaida leader, and Atiya Abdel Rahman, al-Qaida operations chief, the US TV reported, citing unnamed officials from both governments. Haqqani group is responsible for killing many NATO troops, and U.S. in the past has pointed finger at Pakistan for protecting it.

The list was discussed during separate meetings between senior Pakistani and US officials in the past two weeks, including Friday in Islamabad with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to a US official, a Pakistani government official and a Pakistani intelligence official. United states believe that these militants are in Pakistan.

The United States is optimistic Pakistan would provide intelligence for prompt and joint actions against these militants.

Pakistan should now realize that if United States has actionable intellegence it would again unilaterally go into Pakistan to get them. People of Pakistan truly hate U.S. but it's the their government job to tell them why they need U.S. and it's billions. Pakistan is suffering from terror attacks but it's government has not done anything to protect it's people.
