When asked about provocative comments from Pakistan's military leaders vowing not to allow further U.S. raids into Pakistan, Mr. Haqqani said, “What we are offended by is the violation of our sovereignty.”
“Now, we’ve heard the American explanation, but at the same time, try and put yourself in the position of a Pakistani leader who has to go to and hear from the same people who turn around and say, ‘You know what, you can’t protect this country from American helicopters coming in.’ America has a selling job to do in Pakistan to convince more Pakistanis that you are … our ally and, therefore, there will be less offense.”
