Abstract
The United States and Pakistan have decided to establish a counter terrorism cooperation
since the 9/11 incident. This cooperation was initiated by President George Bush as an effort
to fight the terrorists. The United States uses drone attacks in counter terrorism operations
because they considered drone as a very effective weapon to reduce the number of victims in
an arm conflict. The counter terrorism operations was implemented again during the
administration of President Barack Obama. Since elected as president, President Barack
Obama increased the number of drone attacks in counter terrorism with a targeted killing
strategy. The cooperation which initially went well then experienced high tensions due to
drone attacks that killed thousands of people in Pakistan. Drone attacks really affected the
relations between the United States and Pakistan during the President Barack Obama’s
administration. The result of this research indicated that drone attacks affected the relations
between the two countries, the tensions between the United States and Pakistan were
generated by the high number of drone attacks.
