Musharraf admits the deal with US for drones attacks

Pakistan News – Former President of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf has admitted that his government had made a deal with the US for drone attacks in Pakistan.

During an interview with CNN, the former president said that permission was given, “only on a few occasions, when a target was absolutely isolated and no chance of collateral damage.”

This is the first time that any Pakistani official has publicaly admitted to giving permission for drone strikes, despite repeated denials.

In the interview Musharraf said Pakistani leaders would give permission for US drone strikes after discussions involving military and intelligence units and only if “there was no time for our own … military to act.”
