U.S. May Widen Covert War in Pakistan

President Obama and his national security advisers are considering expanding the covert U.S. war in Pakistan far beyond the tribal areas near the Afghan border to strike top Taliban leaders coordinating attacks in the region.

Senior administration officials say two high-level reports on Pakistan and Afghanistan that were forwarded to the White House in recent weeks have called for widening the target area to reach the Taliban and other insurgent groups to a major sanctuary in and around the city of Quetta, the New York Times reported on its Web site.

What happened to all the cries of sovereignty when Bush was in office? Oh, it’s because it doesn’t count when a Democrat is in, right? How very hypocritical of you!


And for those of you that complained about President Bush:

Bush: Obama ‘Deserves My Silence,’ Won’t Criticize New Administration

Former President George W. Bush said on Tuesday that he won’t criticize Obama because the new U.S. president “deserves my silence,” and said he plans to write a book about the 12 toughest decisions he made in office.

“I’m not going to spend my time criticizing him. There are plenty of critics in the arena,” Bush said. “He deserves my silence.”

Bush said he wants Obama to succeed and said it’s important that he has that support.

I’m still waiting for the left to apologize for all the lies they said about him. Things like him trying to start a war with Iran, activating the draft, declaring Martial Law and not ceding the Presidency. Sure, he made mistakes but he is a class act. Something that I doubt President Obama can live up to.

    Hey, I’ll admit I was wrong about SOME of the stuff I hypothesized about Gee Dubs based on his actions. But he was still a horrible president.

    Obama is just getting started; I don’t worship him, but I do think we need to give him some time to see what happens. Am I confident? Well, with things as effed up as they are, I just don’t know if anyone would be able to be successful. I hope he does well, for all of our sakes.

    Now, on to Pakistan: I believe the “war on terror” was to try to make sure al Qaeda and their ilk would not commit acts of terror against the U.S. and its allies. If al Qaeda has free reign in Pakistan, then that’s where we should hit them. Al Qaeda is our enemy and we cannot rely on Pakistan to help us. I would have agreed with this when Dubs was president, by the way.

    At least your big enough of a person to admit being wrong. You’re a rare breed. 🙂

    “but I do think we need to give him some time to see what happens. ”

    I’ve been giving him some time but I don’t like what I see. I’ve seen lefties get upset because a Republican used a font on an ad that was similar to one used in a movie (of the same name as his) but yet when Obama does something wrong (appointing tax cheats, getting money from AIG, reducing benefits for vets…) you don’t hear anything. Or how about when Bush enacted a policy and the left ranted about it yet Obama keeps them and you don’t hear much. Huh? Policy X is bad when a Republican is in office and enacts it but ok if a Democrat gets in and keeps it? Some mighty strange logic or reasoning.

    You may agree with dubya on Pakistan, but most lefties don’t. I’m not crazy about strikes in Pakistan, maybe they should be rare and limited to top targets. I’m no expert but shooting anyone crossing the border (except authorized crossing points) might be a start. We have plenty of night vision and infrared capabilities, we ought to use them!If these terrorists start dying before they can bring their weapons over and use them then they might think twice. Yes, overly simplified but I’m trying to be brief.

    Electing Obama was supposed to make all the bad go away since our policies would change. But have you seen how Iran, N. Korea, China, and Russia have acted? It’s like nothing has changed! I want things to get better, but Mr. Teleprompter isn’t giving me much to hope for!
