Raid on Abbottabad- Precedent to up the attacks on Pakistan
As many already know. All operations, psychological or otherwise have multiple purposes.
The Abbottabad op, offered the US an opportunity to end the Osama Bin Laden psy-op, because plainly speaking, that ship had sailed, hit a storm and sunk long, long ago.
An aside, hoping we all recall that Osama Bin Laden was never wanted for 9/11?
Despite the reinforcement of the myth and legend. He was never wanted for any connection to the 9/11 attacks.
I see the FBI has updated their site. Still no mention of being wanted for 9/11!
What other opportunity was presented by the Abbottabad raid?
From what I have been reading we are looking at two fresh opportunities.
First: The US is stating, flat out they will carry out raids such as this again.
We’re not talking drone flights. We are talking targeted raids. So, who or what is going to be targeted? I guess we shall find out soon enough. But here is the talk-
The US will again carry out special operations in Pakistan if required.

Press Secretary Jay Carney said the Obama Administration would continue with this policy if that country(Pakistan) does not act against terror suspects holed up in that country.
Q) Are you saying that the US reserves the right to, as the President said back in the campaign, if Pakistan will not act against terror suspects, to go and enter Pakistani territory and act against them?”.
A) “Yes. He made very clear during the campaign that that was his view. He was criticized for it. He maintained that that was his view, and by the actions he has taken as President, feels that it was the right approach and continues to feel that way,” the press secretary said.”
US President Barack Obama has consistently said that he would go ahead to target high profile terrorists, if he had actionable intelligence and the Pakistani Government was not willing to act.
In other words, the US will begin undertaking targeted raids within Pakistan, when ever they dam well feel like it! Using any excuse they want. This OBL psy-op set the precedent. Pakistan and it’s people had better watch out. … Full article
