US takes hunt for al-Qaeda to Pakistan

US takes hunt for al-Qaeda to Pakistan - The real focus of the United States' new Afghanistan policy - despite the 30,000 troop surge - is not that country, it is across the border in Pakistan, an intermediary familiar with dialogue between the US and Afghan militants says. The US aims to concentrate on al-Qaeda. Once that group is fatally weakened, Washington believes, the way will open to a negotiated settlement in Afghanistan. - Syed Saleem Shahzad

DISPATCHES FROM AMERICA : Meet the commanded-in-chief - United States President Barack Obama chose as advisors a crew who had never seen a significant change and still can't. This stale crew has ensured that Afghanistan, the first of George W Bush's wars, is now truly Obama's war; and the news came directly from West Point, where the president surrendered to his militarized fate. - Tom Engelhardt

OBL is dead and has been dead. Obama kept mentioning Pakistan during his speech. He never once mentioned OBL. WHY? Because he is dead and he knows it. There has not been any verified intel on OBL for YEARS. 100 A/Q in Afghanistan, 200 A/Q in Pakistan. This is not about A/Q or OBL. It is about Balkanizing the region, and furthering the natural resource thievery, and pipelines.
