The Untold Story In Pakistan

A good write-up from New York Times:
Two years after the Pakistani Army began operations in border tribal areas to root out members of Al Qaeda and other foreign militants, Pakistani officials who know the area say the military campaign is bogged down, the local political administration is powerless and the militants are stronger than ever.
This story helps explain why Bin Laden has not been captured, and why the US is resorting to increasingly barbarous acts like predator drone attacks on vague targets.
