With "allies" like this, who needs terrorists?

Via Hairy Fishnuts, we read that:

... The US has defended its decision to sell F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan, in the face of opposition from India.

Pakistan ... Pakistan ... that name sounds familiar. Oh, right:

Al-Qaida's No. 2 leader was invited to dinner at one of the houses struck by a purported CIA airstrike on a Pakistani border village, but he did not show up, a newspaper and intelligence officials said Sunday.

The reports came as Islamic groups held nationwide protests and anger mounted over Friday's attack that Pakistan says killed innocent civilians while its apparent target - Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's top lieutenant - was not even there...

Some 10,000 people rallied in Karachi, Pakistan's biggest city, chanting "Death to America" and "Stop bombing against innocent people."

Sure, let's have the U.S. sell F-16 fighter jets to those folks. What can possibly go wrong?
