    Great news

    This is better news for Pakistan than it is for us. Pakistan was in danger of being overwhelmed by the Taliban. A Taliban takeover of Pakistan would heve been a threat to the whole world given Pakistans nuclear capabilities.
    Looks like Taliban and Alqaeda are being squeezed from both sides

    Looks like the ISI-D stopped protecting them.

    I wonder how much that cost us?

    Hmmm. Dunno what to think of that. Two years ago, a few weeks in Paki prison and I'd guess they would be begging to be taken to Gitmo, lol. Nowdays it's a open question what their fate is but for all I care, they can rot there. (unless we can get them to blab)

    Anywho, nice catch.

    It's so ironic. Obama is concentrating on bringing down the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the Republicans are concentrating on bringing down Obama is this country.
    Isn't that something? Makes you wonder, whom is working with whom.
