NOW THERE ARE 200 AMERICAN TROOPS IN PAKISTAN

Wired - The U.S. military has 200 troops on the ground in Pakistan. That's about the double the previously-disclosed number of forces there. It's a whole lot more than the "no American troops in Pakistan" promised by special envoy Richard Holbrooke. And let's not even get into the number of U.S. intelligence operatives and security contractors on Pakistani soil.

The troop levels are one of a number of details that have emerged about the once-secret U.S. war in Pakistan since three American troops were killed yesterday by an improvised bomb. . . The military tells the Times that in addition to yesterday's deaths, "12 other service members had been killed in Pakistan since Sept. 11, 2001."

Good. The "Powell Doctrine" must be applied. Once and for all, the Wahhabi terrorists must be neutralized. There is much greater chance at success because elements in the Bush Administration were oil-profiteers. The Obama Admin is more FOCUSSED ON THE MILITARY ASPECT.
