GWOT: Got Way Off Track

Monday, August 14, 2006

Pakistan (Click to Enlarge)In most of the recent news articles telling of the terrorist's plot to blow up passenger jets over the Atlantic, I kept reading repeated references to their connections to terrorist organizations located in Pakistan. Being curious, I did a quick check to see what groups were known to be located within that country. Here's a list of the terrorist organizations I compiled from Wikipedia. Keep in mind that Pakistan is our ally in the Global War on Terror:
  1. Al-Qaeda (1988-present; Islamists; Afghanistan, Pakistan, and worldwide)
This rather large list seems to beg the question, "Are they really serious about eradicating these terrorists groups, or are they just keeping tabs on them for us?" Think about this for a minute. The Pakistani government has had almost five years to round up and end these terrorist groups, yet we still being subjected to their influences:

And the plot's threads back to Pakistan are likely to further concerns that the South Asian nation has become a hub for international terrorism. Source.

In my opinion, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has done a piss-poor job of eliminating indigenous terrorist groups. Mabey its time the United States refocuses on its goal of apprehending those responsible for 9/11. After all, those responsible still need to be brought to justice for their crimes against the innocent.
