Pakistani official: 'We are rethinking of our relationship with the U.S.'

(CNN) - The fallout over a Pentagon investigation that found lack of trust between U.S. and Pakistan was a leading factor in a deadly airstrike mounted Friday with a senior Pakistani government official saying his government was rethinking its relationship with Washington.

Relations between the two countries - and their militaries - have severely eroded in recent months, beginning in May with a secret raid by American commandos that killed Osama bin Laden and culminating with a U.S. airstrike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers in November.

Details of the Pentagon investigation announced a day earlier found that U.S. forces acted in self-defense after being fired upon in Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border, though it cited "inadequate coordination" in the incident. Pakistan has said that it was the other way around - that their forces were attacked first.

"Currently, we don't care much about these findings, and we will see if a proper reaction is necessary once the actual report comes out," said a senior Pakistani government official with knowledge of the workings of the relationship between Washington and Islamabad.

    I wonder if you could make an intelligent comment about the horrors that go on in Pakistan ?
    Maybe RAISE a conversation about the abuse that has been presented which to any thinking person would be MORE important than an indivual. Doncha think ?
