    He never considered Osama a terrorist. So this is not slip of tongue but his belief.

    For those who don't want to go through the whole speech and don't understand Urdu, here's a rough translation (from 44 minutes on):

    "The amount of humiliation Pakistan has had to endure by becoming a partner of the US in the US war on terror is unprecedented. It didn't matter what Pakistan did, we were blamed and humiliated for US failures in Afghanistan.

    There are two events that were shameful for Pakistan, that we are ashamed of. The first is that the US came into Pakistan and killed Osama Bin Laden in Abottabad ... martyred him. What happened after that? The entire world abused us .. called us evil. Our own ally intruded into Pakistan and killed someone and didn't inform us despite the fact that we have lost 70,000 Pakistanis in their war on terror.

    The second thing to be ashamed of, the drone attacks in Pakistan ..."

    For those trying to understand Imran Khan on this, keep in mind his consistent and vociferous opposition to Pakistan becoming part of the US WoT, deploying Pakistani forces in FATA and the drone attacks, since the US invasion of Afghanistan.

    IK has always spoken in favor of dialog and negotiations, even in FATA, to address the issues there. In his view, FATA and Swat would not have become the hotbeds of terrorism that they did had it not been for Pakistan joining the US War on Terror. Whether you agree or disagree with that position, it is one that he strongly believes in.

    IK isn't in support of terrorism, he just has a different point of view on how things should have been handled in Pakistan and Afghanistan post 9/11 attacks.

    If you believe on I.K do let me know "did we had any option not to be on side of U.S.A"?

    Whether the correct decision or not, and whether Pakistan had an option to choose or not, it's over and done with.

    I'm merely pointing out Imran Khan's views on the events to put his comments in context.

    Now IK is being called crazy for designating OBL a martyr but history has one evil sense of humour.

    Many butchers who were at some point in history called terrorists are today regarded as champions of liberty. Just wait.

    Maybe the next time Prime Minister goes to the US, he should mention OBL and call him a martyr.

    His position on whether OBL should have been killed, is as follows:

    "We in Pakistan always felt that we were an ally of the US and if we had been given the information about Osama Bin Laden, we should have taken him out."

    Baier then asked if Khan understood the skepticism around the Inter Services Intelligence agency (ISI) for leaking key information, to which Khan replied:

    "And yet it was ISI that gave the information which led to the location of Osama bin Laden.

    "If you ask CIA it was ISI which gave the initial location through the phone connection."
