    One crass $&!#@ and she's AT IT AGAIN...

    ISLAMABAD - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton chided Pakistani officials Thursday for failing to press the hunt for al-Qaida inside their borders, suggesting they know where the terrorist leaders are hiding.

    American officials have long said that al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden and senior lieutenants of the network accused in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks operate out of the rugged terrain along the border with Afghanistan.

    But Clinton's unusually blunt comments went further in asserting that Pakistan's government has done too little about it.

    Well, she knows a whole lot about soldiers and army and stuff. Seems like we've been looking for a long time and haven't found him either.

    Maybe she should look for him herself?

    I wonder if the chopper had to do any manuvers to dodge the gun fire as they were landing over there...

    She's a crusty old battleaxe and prone to putting her foot in her mouth but even though her timing was a little off, she said what should have been said long ago. The area of Pakistan where it borders on Afghanistan is similar terrain. Bad guys (Al Quaida) could be training or hiding there for years and no one would ever know, or live to tell about it. Legitimate governments in both countries have little or no power in those regions as they are controlled by warlords and clans whose primary form of entertainment is blood feuding. It's no surprise that governmental troops don't go into those regions because they are out manned and out gunned and couldn't begin to dig bad guys out of their caves and hidey holes. I'm not a Hillery fan in any sense of the word but in this case I think she is spot on.
