Osama raid an act of war: Musharraf.

WASHINGTON, May 26, 2011 (Frontier Star): Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has said Americas raid that killed Osama bin Laden was "technically an act of war" against his country. "No country has a right to intrude into any other country," said Musharraf. Bin Laden was on May 2 killed by US Navy Seals in Abbottabad, a garrison town north of Islamabad, in a raid. Musharraf described as "arrogance" President Barack Obamas comments this week that America would not hesitate to repeat a raid like that killed bin Laden. "Actually, technically, legally, you see it, its an act of war. So I think it is an irresponsible statement, and I think such arrogance should not be shown, publicly, to the world," he told Piers Morgan in an interview to CNN. "Theoretically, technically, yes indeed, its an act of war," he said, but noted it wouldnt necessarily signal a war. "How to deal with it is the question, and I leave it to the government there to how they want to deal with it."
