“…U.S. forces carried out missile strikes in FATA [Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas], often without Pakistan’s permission. On January 13, 2006, U.S. missiles targeted [al Qaeda second-in-command] Ayman al-Zawahiri in the village of Damadola in Bajur agency. …The missile attack killed five senior al Qaeda figures but generated enormous public anger as politicians accused [Pakistani President Purvez] Musharraf of allowing Washington to undermine Pakistan’s sovereignty. Musharraf was forced to issue a sharp rejoinder to the United States that such strikes ‘must not be repeated.’ ”
