Yesterday on "Fresh Air," I heard most of Terri Gross's interview w/ a Pkaistani journalist named Ahmed Rashid. Check it out on NPR.org.
Rashid seems more hopeful but he did state that the Pakistani, the Afghani Taliban, and al Qaeda are coordinating efforts as in the recruitment of teenage suicide bombers froim Taliban run madrassas.
I thought of this when I read this post, and others, describing Taliban fighters getting cut to ribbons. I wonder when we hear of the Taliban slaughtered if these aren't the newly recruited and poorly trained schmucks while the trainers aren't the guys who killed those 10 French paratroopers.
