Pakistan’s Starting to Step Forward…Finally

The AP has an article this morning, Pakistan troops capture militant stronghold, commander says.

Bush seems to be doing something right. Sure, Pakistan doesn’t like us striking at militant hideouts in its country, but at least it’s encouraging the Pakistanis to get off their hides and confront the militants themselves. It is sad that 95 civilians died, presumably through our airstrikes. At the same time, undermining the militants’ safe haven has reduced violence on the Afghan side of the border, according to U.S. officials.

I agree with Barack Obama on this: John McCain says he’ll capture Osama bin Laden if he has to go to the gates of hell. But he criticizes Obama for wanting to take him out in Pakistan? It looks like Bush is following Obama’s idea.
