Washington says the US president reserves the right to order military assault again on Pakistani soil against "terror suspects," despite Islamabad's complaint over a recent US raid.
Following the US military assault on Osama bin Laden's compound in the capital Islamabad's suburb of Abbottabad on Sunday that reportedly killed the al-Qaeda chief, the US administration came under fire from Pakistani officials, who denounced the attack as unauthorized and unilateral.
Asked whether US President Barack Obama would be prepared to order another military operation inside Pakistan, White House spokesman Jay Carney was quoted by AFP as saying that "He [Obama] made very clear during the campaign that that was his view".'
