US reiterates all out help for Malala

- October 12, 2012 - Updated 653 PKT - From Web Edition

WASHINGTON: United States Thursday said that its offer to provide all the means for the transportation and medical treatment for Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban, was on the table for the Pakistani side, if they need it, Geo News reported.

“President Barack Obama and his press secretary Jay Carney were pretty explicit about what we have proposed and offered. But my understanding is that the Pakistanis have not come back to us with any specific requests”, State Department’s Victoria Nuland said during a daily press briefing.


To a question she said that White House had talked about the efforts against terror with Pakistan when with Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, who were here just a couple of weeks ago.


“We have an intense counterterrorism relationship. We would like to do even more together. We’re continuing to try to work on these issues and encourage our Pakistani partners to do as much as they can against these issues, because Pakistanis are the greatest victims of terror inside their own country”, said Nuland.


Replying to another query she said they were in contact with the Pakistani side in the wake of attack on Malala.


“I think it speaks to the work that we’re trying to do to get all of these working groups that we had under our counterterrorism cooperation back up and running – as you know, we had the counter-IED group, etcetera – and to continue to support each other and share intelligence, etcetera,” she said.

Innocent girl, used! US introduced her to international and national level through NGOs, wait for right time, Rally to Wazirstan against drones, US bad image start floating around the world for Drone attacks on civilian population, CIA plan attack on Malala.Thus..divert attention from drone rally. Using strong media compaign to justify Talibans are problem... Media speaks alound! Wake up --- oh humans, stand with humanity.

United States has state of the art healthcare setup across the border in Kabul for its soldiers. Malala must be moved there immediately so that she can survive and be back on her feet. Pakistani politician and the military does not need to personalize this. The main and the only point is to save the girl and see her fully recovered.

Drones attacks have nothing to do with the attack on the little kids. Do not try to spin it.

This is the real US we know and admire

I ask US to stop helping the Pakistani Taliban, and kill them. That is biggest help to Malalla
