There are many people in Pakistan who are rejoicing the death of 22 US Navy Seals commandos that were killed Saturday in Afghanistan’s Saed Abad district.
In the deadliest single loss for American forces in the war against the Taliban, the US military helicopter CH-47 Chinook was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade from Taliban insurgents Saturday during fighting in eastern Afghanistan.
But according to Times Wire Service, when speaking of the U.S. Seal commandos, an editorial in Pakistan’s leading Urdu Daily Jasarat says, “Their biggest accomplishment in their whole life is said to be their participation in Abottabad Operation. It was only after this operation that the American President announced the ‘martyrdom’ of Usama bin laden and the victory of the US army in Afghanistan.”
