Masood Azhar detained after Obama referred Pakistan as Terror Haven in SOTU




http://www.newsbharati.com/ Masood Azhar detained after Obama referred Pakistan as Terror Haven in SOTU.

US president Barack Obama speaks in his last 


State of Union address said that Pakistan is 


becoming Biggest 'havens for new terror': 

After latest Pathankot air base attack in India 


by Pakistani terror groups, Pakistn is attracting 


attention of world for being number one on state 


sponsored terrorism.

Observing that "instability will continue for 


decades" in many parts of the world including 


Afghanistan and Pakistan, US President Barack 


Obama on Wednesday said both Al Qaeda and ISIS 


pose a direct threat to the US during his final 


State of the Union Address to the Congress.

Both Al Qaeda and now ISIL pose a direct threat 


to our people, because in today's world, even a 


handful of terrorists who place no value on human 


life, including their own, can do a lot of 


damage," Obama said.

Our foreign policy must be focused on the threat 


from ISIL and al Qaeda, but it can't stop there. 


For even without ISIL, instability will continue 


for decades in many parts of the world - in the 


Middle East, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, in 


parts of Central America, Africa and Asia.  Some 


of these places may become safe havens for new 


terrorist networks...' he added.

In his eight State of the Union Address, Obama 


said terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and ISIL 


(also known as ISIS Islamic State militant group) 


use the Internet to poison the minds of 


individuals inside the country; they undermine 


American allies."But as we focus on destroying 


ISIL, over-the-top claims that this is World War 


III just play into their hands. Masses of 


fighters on the back of pickup trucks and twisted 


souls plotting in apartments or garages pose an 


enormous danger to civilians and must be stopped. 


But they do not threaten our national existence," 


Obama said.


"That's the story ISIL wants to tell; that's the 


kind of propaganda they use to recruit," he 


asserted.


"We don't need to build them up to show that 


we're serious, nor do we need to push away vital 


allies in this fight by echoing the lie that ISIL 


is representative of one of the world's largest 


religions. We just need to call them what they 


are - killers and fanatics who have to be rooted 


out, hunted down, and destroyed," Obama said.


That's exactly what the US is doing, he said 


adding that for more than a year, America has led 


a coalition of more than 60 countries to cut off 


ISIL's financing, disrupt their plots, stop the 


flow of terrorist fighters, and stamp out their 


vicious ideology."With nearly 10,000 air strikes, 


we are taking out their leadership, their oil, 


their training camps, and their weapons. We are 


training, arming, and supporting forces who are 


steadily reclaiming territory in Iraq and Syria," 


he said."If this Congress is serious about 


winning this war, and wants to send a message to 


our troops and the world, you should finally 


authorise the use of military force against ISIL. 


Take a vote. But the American people should know 


that with or without Congressional action, ISIL 


will learn the same lessons as terrorists before 


them," the President said.


During the address Obama further said: "If you 


doubt America's commitment - or mine - to see 


that justice is done, ask Osama bin Laden. Ask 


the leader of Al Qaeda in Yemen, who was taken 


out last year, or the perpetrator of the Benghazi 


attacks, who sits in a prison cell.  When you 


come after Americans, we go after you. It may 


take time, but we have long memories, and our 


reach has no limit."He said that America's 


foreign policy must be focused on the threat from 


ISIL and Al Qaeda, but it can't stop there."For 


even without ISIL, instability will continue for 


decades in many parts of the world - in the 


Middle East, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, in 


parts of Central America, Africa and Asia," he 


said.


"Some of these places may become safe havens for 


new terrorist networks; others will fall victim 


to ethnic conflict, or famine, feeding the next 


wave of refugees," Obama said."The world will 


look to us to help solve these problems, and our 


answer needs to be more than tough talk or calls 


to carpet bomb civilians. That may work as a TV 


sound bite, but it doesn't pass muster on the 


world stage," he added.
