Default Pakistan Army claims NATO airstrike was planned

"Pakistan army believes NATO attack planned"

"A senior Pakistani military officer said a NATO air strike that killed 24 Pakistani troops on the border with Afghanistan last month was pre-planned...

Major General Ashfaq Nadeem, director general of military operations, also said Pakistan, a strategic U.S. ally, would deploy an air defence system along the border to prevent such attacks...

The Daily Times said Nadeem described the attack as a plot while another newspaper quoted him as saying it was a "pre-planned conspiracy" against Pakistan.

"We can expect more attacks from our supposed allies," Nadeem was quoted as saying during his briefing, The Express Tribune reported."

And at the same time, some of the tankers stranded in Pakistan due to the border closure were attacked.

"30 NATO supply trucks burnt down in Pakistan after border closed"

Pakistan blames “Afghan commander” for Nato attack: BBC

It seems the Pakis have finally realized their lies and delusions are endangering their aid money. So now they are shifting the blame from America to the Afghans.
