Secret US-Pakistan deal on drone attacks revealed


The Abbottabad Commission report, divulged July 8, 2013 by Al-Jazeera sheds light on a secret understanding between Washington and Islamabad over the use of drones.

Despite Pakistan’s repeated protests against U.S. drone strikes to eradicate "terrorist" groups, it turns out they are perfectly legal.

The Abbottabad Commission was to study the conditions of the attack by U.S. Special Forces on Osama bin Laden’s supposed house in Abbottabad. The report was classified by the Pakistani government.
