This was Ambassador Anne Patterson’s first interview ever to Dunya News. Dunya was then a new channel launched in Dec 2008 from Lahore and was in the process of creating its mark on Pakistani media scene. This interview took place amidst widespread rumors that US mercenaries and assassins belonging to Black Waters were active all across Pakistan. Ambassador Patterson in this interview strongly denied that. However later on 27th Jan 2010, Raymond Davis, a CIA hired private assassin ended up shooting two persons in Lahore creating a series of tensions between the US and Pakistan which destroyed the career of Anne Patterson’s successor, Ambassador Cameron Munter.
