Bin Laden Sitting In A Cave Laughing, while Pakistan blocks US hunt
The new Pakistani government's pursuit of peace deals with tribal groups in the region has been highly criticised in Washington. However, Qureshi had reassured Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, at a meeting held on Friday that his government was doing everything it can to combat lawless tribal areas bordering Afghanistan. Pakistan and Afghanistan have regularly exchanged criticism of each others efforts in fighting armed groups operating along their long, remote, mountainous border. Qureshi described Pakistan's counterterrorism efforts as a "grassroots" approach.
