Even though Pakistan is one of the most cooperative of US allies in the War on Terror, it may house some of the most deadly terrorists still on the loose. While Bin Laden is thought to be hiding out in Pakistan many other terrorist cell leaders may also be there. The country has vast and differing landscapes and it is hard to track down and find would-be terrorists there.
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - Vital information gleaned from the arrests of a senior al-Qaida terrorist and a militant computer expert highlights the progress Pakistan is making in the fight against terrorism. But it also illustrates that this Islamic nation remains a refuge for Osama bin Laden's group, where the most wanted men in the world can hide out for years.

``We know that al-Qaida is here. They have their sleeper cells in Pakistan, and we are trying to eliminate them,'' Interior Minister Faisal Saleh Hayyat told The Associated Press.

While the Bush administration keeps friendly ties with Pakistan, (one of the Pakistani officials was even in DC on the day of 9/11/2001) there is still a lot of work to be done in the region. There were many reports from Afghanistan that convoys of men, some thought to be some of Bin Laden's top aides or even Bin Laden himself, left the country over into Pakistan when the US invaded.

The Bush administration has made it clear that it will not support countries that harbor terrorists, and while Pakistan is trying to make strides it still has problems. On diplomatic levels many Pakistanis are sympathetic to US causes, but many individual soldiers are willing to turn their heads and let terrorists go.

The terror alert level being raised in recent days is even speculated to be because of information from a captured Pakistani.

The article from the Guardian says "Officials also are getting a wealth of information from a militant computer and communications expert arrested in an earlier raid in July. The man would send messages using code words to al-Qaida suspects, a Pakistani intelligence official told the AP on condition of anonymity."

A US counter-terrorism official said that Sunday's warning was mostly due to the information recovered from Pakistan's capture of an Al-Qaeda operative.

Yes they are but if you are not ignorant you wopuld know of the major conflict in Pakistan between Sunnis and Shiites thus they come here and are branded terrorists.

What proof do you have that bin Laden is in Pakistan? The same goes for Israel - they have a lot of nuclear weapons and they never came into the picture when Bush was ranting on about WMDs. So what if tehre are terrorists Pakistan is trying to clean this situation up and if you have not noticed theres almost a war between Pakistan and India and they are doing their upmost
