Michael Chertoff, the US secretary for homeland security, said that successes against al-Qaeda should not lead to a weakening of resolve. He warned that militants in Pakistan were training recruits who could mix inconspicuously in Western society.
He questioned whether Pakistan’s rulers had the right strategy to respond. Mr. Chertoff said the US had succeeded in pushing back al-Qaeda in Iraq and argued that Muslims in Iraq were now reacting against indiscriminate militant violence. But he warned that: “If we lose our resolution, we could find ourselves actually losing ground.”
Perhaps they should start thinking if Musharraf is an ally or a foe!
