The United States has a secret “retribution” plan to bomb every known Al-Qaeda compound or training camp in the event of another 9/11-like attack on American soil by terrorists based in Pakistan.

Under this plan, it would bomb or attack every known Al-Qaeda compound or training camp in the US intelligence database, according to the book Obama’s War written by American journalist Bob Woodward.

“Some locations might be outdated, but there would be no concern, under the plan, for who might be living there now. The attribution plan called for a brutal punishing attack on at least 150 or more associated camps,” Woodward says.

Earlier US media reports have identified most of these camps to be located in tribal areas of Pakistan and in Afghanistan.

The disclosures in the book come in the backdrop of recent stern warnings sounded by the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that there would be severe consequences, if another 9/11 type terrorist attack was traced back to plots in Pakistan.
