Report: U.S. Mulls new Covert Push in Pakistan

The worthless Bushies are going to go into Pakistan. This will distract us even more, and cost us more. This is the price being paid for ignoring Afghanistan and putting too much faith on that thug "President" in Pakistan:
Senior U.S. officials, concerned over intelligence reports that al-Qaida and the Taliban are more intent on destabilizing Pakistan, are considering expanding the authority of the Central Intelligence Agency and the military to conduct far more aggressive covert operations there, the New York Times said Sunday.

Citing senior Bush administration officials who spoke off the record, the Times said that while no decisions had been made, the options under discussion included the CIA working with the military’s Special Operations forces.

Several participants in a meeting on Friday argued that the threat to President Pervez Musharraf’s government was now so acute that Musharraf and the country’s military leadership were likely to grant Washington more latitude, the Times said.
