Pakistan News, Anyone?

NOTE: I’ll be Tweeting Pakistan news through the day. See the sidebar or go to my Twitter Profile.

If there was trouble in Pakistan, you would not know it to peruse US media today. At least so far, it is preocccupied with a Craigslist killer and a singing competition in the British Isles.

Here are a few annotated links to try to compensate:

Additional Troops Deployed by US Along Afghan Pak Border KABUL: “Terror safe havens in Pakistan pose threat to the entire region, top commander of the coalition forces in Afghanistan said.

“General David McKiernan, the top commander of US and NATO forces in Afghanistan, addressing a press conference here said the additional US troops in Afghanistan will be deployed along the border with Pakistan.” SOURCE

Situation dangerous in Pakistan: Holbrooke: “US special envoy for Pakistan and Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke warned on Sunday that no other place in the world today faced a more dangerous situation than Pakistan.” SOURCE

ISI Links With Baitullah Mehsud: “Several operations were launched by Pakistani security forces in the last couple of years to kill or capture Mehsud, who is also suspected to have hand in the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, the news magazine noted. But each time he vanished without incident.” SOURCE
