Pakistan Claims U.S. Gave Bad Intel

The debate over who’s responsible for an American airstrike that inadvertently killed 24 Pakistani troops on the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan continues. Friday, Pakistani officials say it was the U.S. who gave the wrong information about where the strike would be directed, which is why Pakistan gave the U.S. the go-ahead. U.S. officials insist Pakistanis had the correct coordinates of the planned attack when they gave permission to strike. Pakistan has declined to participate in the U.S.’s investigation of the friendly-fire incident and has stopped all transport of NATO supplies across its border with Afghanistan.
