Secretary Clinton Says Pakistani Army Must Press Into North Waziristan

When asked if she thought the Pakistani army should expand its current offensive in South Waziristan into North Waziristan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the Pakistani military “can’t just play Whack-a-Mole” and must remain on the offensive to beat the Taliban.  Secretary Clinton has showed remarkable candor in her recent trips to Pakistan, and yesterday she continued the practice by acknowledging the US role in fostering militant Islam, and admitting that the Pakistani people have reasons to question US strategy in the region.  However, she also stressed the good working relationship the two countries currently share, and the fact that the Pakistani people seem to be generally supportive of the Army.
