WTF? Bush Hails Pakistan As A "Strong Ally" In War On Terror

MSNBC: President Bush praised Pakistan Monday as a strong ally in the fight against terrorists and as committed to securing its border with Afghanis

MSNBC:

President Bush praised Pakistan Monday as a strong ally in the fight against terrorists and as committed to securing its border with Afghanistan.[..]

In words meant to bolster the U.S.-Pakistan relationship, Bush said (Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza) Gilani has made a "very strong commitment" to securing the dangerous border region.

Gilani said he wants the people of the United States to know that vast majority of Pakistanis want peace, and want to cooperate with the U.S.

Gilani's White House visit comes amid increased calls by senior U.S. officials for Pakistan to stop militants from staging cross-border attacks on U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

Officials and state media said that missiles hit a religious school in a village just inside Pakistan's border with Afghanistan on Monday, killing six people. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the incident followed a series of strikes apparently by U.S. aircraft in recent months against militant leaders holed up in Pakistan's tribal belt.

Um, hello? Reality to BushWorld...
