Twitter alert: Shut up Clinton

Hillary Clinton's statements in India cause an online uproar from Pakistanis.


Web Desk May 07, 2012

As soon as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, during a visit to India, revealed her suspicions about al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri residing somewhere in Pakistan, local Twitter users kicked off the trend #ShutUpClinton.

While most of the tweets said nothing more than asking Clinton to "shut up", there were others who defended Pakistan from the allegations. Still others countered Clinton's arguments by poking holes in US foreign policy.

Aafreen | 9 years ago | Reply the proof of OBL's death was not given as a viedo and pictures as US and entire world knows that those videos would be used as most important wepon for brain washing of pakistanis by showing them pictures/ videos again and again and a mazzar would be created where every terrorist from pak would go and aim kill entire world and make OBL as icon for all muslims(?) of the world to rage war on entire world. Pakistanis knows this very much?donn't they?

Brother do you think the army is stupid enough to acquiesce to what americans say and not confirm it. Their silence does not necessarily mean they have not made their homework. US deliberately has left void in the confirmation, to wrong at a later stage those who question it and give credence to the existence of conspiracy theorists. And still to believe it another good reason is the impartial judicial commission which too hasn't questioned it vividly.
