US might strike in Pakistan: White House
Thu Jul 19, 12:57 PM ET
The White House on Thursday refused to rule out striking at suspected terrorist targets inside Pakistan and would not say whether US forces would first seek permission from Islamabad.
Asked whether US President George W. Bush had ruled out US military action inside Pakistan, spokesman Tony Snow replied: “We never rule out any options, including striking actionable targets.”
Asked whether Bush would first seek authorization from Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, Snow told reporters: “Those are matters that are best not discussed publicly.”
