Pak-US Intel meet daily, Noor Mohammed Top, 7 Easy Ways to Entertain for Less, Saudi Wavers,

"The real plan is not the elimination of any individual, rather it is to root out al-Qaeda's headquarters, situated at the crossroads of the South Waziristan and North Waziristan [tribal areas in Pakistan], which is causing massive instability in the whole region of Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Iraq," an Islamabad-based senior Pakistani security official told Asia Times Online on the condition of anonymity. The officer showed ATol highly secret documents which reveal how al-Qaeda-linked groups have been involved in several high-profile robberies, assassinations and other activities in a network that has been broadened from North Waziristan all the way to Mumbai in India, where a massive attack was launched on that city last year by 10 Pakistani-linked militants. More than 150 people were killed. Pakistan is not believed to have given the US specific information on Baitullah, who has a $5 million bounty on his head, but they have shared detailed maps of the region where the drone attack took place in South Waziristan last week. . - Syed Saleem Shahzad Pakistan, US look across the border
