Will carry out Abbottabad-type attacks in Pak if needed: US

By The Assam Tribune

WASHINGTON, May 5 (PTI): The US will again carry out special operations in Pakistan if required like the attack that killed Osama bin-Laden to target high profile terrorists, a top White House official said, asserting this had been "very successful".

Notwithstanding the reaction from Pakistan that America?s covert operation against bin Laden was an "unauthorized unilateral action", White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the Obama Administration would continue with this policy if that country does not act against terror suspects holed up in that country.

The Obama Administration at the same time said the al Qaeda leader would have been taken alive had he surrendered to the US commandos but maintained that its covert operation in Abbottabad deep inside Pakistan on Sunday to kill him was conducted in a manner "fully consistent" with the laws of war.
