"...A Lebanese man...with ties to al-Qaida is in custody...was a (American-funded) freedom fighter in 1988 and 1989 against the Soviets in Afghanistan...

I think the writer of this article should, at least, acknowledge that the Taliban and its allies Al Qaeda were at one time funded by the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.

"World at Risk" - report by US panel
Next attack on US will originate in Pakistan

'Were one to map terrorism and weapons of mass destruction today, all roads would intersect in Pakistan,' a report by a high-powered bipartisan commission that was mandated by the United States Congress, that nation's parliament, has said. The report titled, World at Risk, The Report of the Commission on the "Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism", said Pakistan 'has nuclear weapons and a history of unstable governments, and parts of its territory are currently a safe haven for Al Qaeda and other terrorists.'

The report, had one whole chapter on Pakistan, titled, "Pakistan: The Intersection of Nuclear Weapons and Terrorism", acknowledged that 'Pakistan is an ally, but there is a grave danger, it could also be an source of a terrorist attack on the United States, possibly with weapons of mass destruction.'

The members of the Commission said that it had 'singled out Pakistan for special attention in this report, as we believe it poses a serious challenge to America's short-term and medium-term national security interests. Indeed, many government officials and outside experts believe that the next terrorist attack against the United States is likely to originate from within the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in Pakistan.'

'In terms of the next of proliferation and terrorism, Pakistan must top the list of priorities for the next President and Congress,' it said.
